Day 15 - Fri 16 Apr 2004
I've been on the road now for 2 weeks. Up by 7:45, all my washing had dried out overnight - excellent. Phil was waiting for
me in recepition. Walked up to Shin Kobe station in bright sunshine. Caught the shinkansen to Kyoto, and dumped my stuff in a
locker at the station - then headed out to see the sights. Made it up to Kinkaku-ji to see the Golden Temple - on the
bus got chatting to an American TV producer.
After the temple we saw the Imperial Place, lots of big wooden buildings, and an impressive japanese garden.
Back to the station, grabbed something to eat, checked my e-mail, grabbed my bag, and checked into my Ryoken.
Went for a walk in Gion in the hope of spotting a Giesha, but no luck - then dropped Phil off at the station.
