  • 12月的紅葉情報說下鴨神社仍有紅葉可看,遂前往碰碰運氣,神社入口處設有橙色的鳥取,很易找,初段沒太多樹,走到尾段幸好還看得到紅葉。 
  • Another world heritage site in Kyoto. While not as glamorous as many other temple attractions in Kyoto, it does offer a nice treed environment for a leisurely stroll. 
  • Relatives of monkey souvenirs purchased, ITTO-bori carving of the Zodiac and Zodiac charm. Did not buy that is not wanted bells also are for sale. In the numerous, Zodiac charm Zodiac charm here is best and blessing.
