We visited Kyoto again, for the first time in two years! First day, we went to Sanzen-in surrounded by the beautiful fresh green leaves, then to Shisen-dō, Enkō-ji, and then we did some shopping in the Nishiki Market.Second day, we enjoyed a special exposition in the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, then we walked leisurely, having lunch and dropping in shops, to the Sannenzaka Musuem.Third day, we went to the Toei Kyoto Studio Park for the very first time and then went to Heian Shrine and had a nice stroll in its garden.We were very sorry that the Greek Roman Museum, Kyoto was temporarily closed, but the food at the restaurant "Aoi" in Zaimoku-chō was very good!Kyoto is really an interesting and charming city...
