Kyoto

There are many old temples kept open as tour spot.  With the streets crowded with visitors, driving a car would be difficult so I took out a foldable bicycle out of the bus and used that to move around.

The traditional Japanese look of the scenery is good to the eyes not only of foreigners but also of us Japanese.

I came across a lounge for Amex card (Gold or higher) owners and decided to take a look.  Of course, I don't own junk like Gold one (lol).

I spent a comfortable time there drinking tea.
