Christmas in Kyoto

January 4, 2012

molly, my little sister, came to visit for the holidays, so we traveled to kyoto for christmas. we spent christmas day walking around the flea market at Kitano shrine and hiding out in a great noodle shop to escape the cold and the crowds. exploring Murayama park where we saw Chionen temple, which has the largest wooden gate in Japan. eating mochi samples as we walked through Higashiyama, a preserved historic district, up to Kiyomizudera temple. and finally, ending the day with curry and chestnut pudding.
