Kyoto is a vegetarian’s refuge. With the numerous Buddhist temples in town, comes with it lot of vegetarian restaurants. Here is my first meal in Kyoto:
Gion 祇園 (pronounced gi as in “geese” and on as in “on/off”) is the famous geisha district of Kyoto. The streets are lined with old buildings and nicely paved roads.
I did not know this but the female entertainer in Kyoto is called Geiko, and an apprentice is called Meiko, whereas in Tokyo, she is called Geisha and Hangyoku.
Walking along the Kamo River, I see cranes fishing.
