Nishi Hongan-Ji and Nishiki Market

I took shelter from the rain this morning in the vast hall at Nishi Hongan-Ji, and it will be my last temple visit this trip, as tomorrow I will spend the day at Kyoto Seika University, viewing tapes in the media centre in the morning and working with Shinsuke and Oha on details of the book translation in the afternoon. Weds morning I will leave Kyoto en route to Tokyo, before flying home to England on Saturday morning.

After lunch at “Second House” on Shichijo-Dori, I cycled northwards into downtown Kyoto and wandered about in Nishiki Market, enjoying the rich visual & culinary delights and looking for a bottle of sweet sake.
