Japan Day 10 and 11: A fantasy bamboo forest and our favorite shrine

Japan Day 10 KyotoThis is a photo update post written months after our final day in Kyoto Japan.  Like many of our last days on vacation, I couldn’t get the writing done to post the blog live.

But it was one of our favorite days though with the Sanjusangendo shrine, and the bamboo forest at Arashiyama.
