Photobombers galore. It’s hard to get a decent photoΒ but that’s ok. Sometimes that’s what makes it more interesting.

It was raining hard by the time we left Kinkakuji. We were forced to buy umbrellas at a nearby store selling them for Y500. At the Kinkakuji-Michi bus stop, we rode bus 205 again and went down at Kyoto Station.
