After seeing the shrine, we took the Keihan line to Deamchiyanagi.
We all went to eat at Falafel Garden!
Mom and Brittany look really happy to get a rest!
Next, we grabbed some chuhai and sat by the river.
This crane was sneaking along at the river.
He was really fun to watch.
Next, we hopped across the stones.
We walked over to Shimogamo Jinja, one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto, and the shrine of the neighborhood where we used to live. Here’s a cute little bird we saw in Tadasu no Mori, the forest around the shrine.
This is Shimogamo Shrine.
There are different prayer areas depending on your Chinese zodiac.
Last year was the year of the dragon, and this year is the horse.
We showed my mom our old apartment.
It was my mom’s birthday, so we took her to Clientele, my favorite patisserie in the world.
We even sang to her in the cafe! She and I got the same cake.
Teddy got a pistachio flavored cake.
Brittany got a hazelnut flavored cake.
Well, that’s all for yesterday!
