  • I went to see the gold of the Pharaohs and pyramids exhibition in the Museum of. But the main purpose was watching former Japan Bank of Kyoto branch, in the annex. Old bank opened as a Hall, restaurant or hotel. As the Bank of Japan is it enough I wanted is unfortunate, but still stately building is indeed. I don't want the pictures look fit and wire is out of the way.

  • Went to see "gold of the Pharaohs and pyramids exhibition" for the first time this time. Go from Sanjo-Dori St. red brick, stately feel. Through this building Museum was the new building of the annex to the annex. Not much use because it didn't want to see the old good I thought.

  • From Subway Karasuma Line Karasuma Oike Station, exit 5, Sanjo-Dori St. is just 3 minutes walk to the East. Typical existence in Sanjo Street, lined with historic buildings. The red brick stands out. When I went there in modern buildings adjacent to the next (Northern) special exhibitions have been periodically was held exhibition of Egypt. It is a red-brick building has been all sorts of events on a regular basis. Red brick is admission free. I like the route from here to explore teramachi Street.
