After sending off blister-suffering Pierre to the hotel by taxi, Yasuko and I strolled in a quiet lantern-lit stone-paved quarter to the Yasaka Shrine. The crowd of daytime tourists was gone by the time and the area very atmospheric. The shrine was illuminated by lots of paper lanterns as some Japanese were coming by to pray at night.
The Kyoto night life was in full swing. On the way back to the hotel there were zillions of attractive bars and restaurants so many that we couldn’t visit them all in a lifetime!
