Kyoto - Tenryuji Temple
We walked to the Tenryuji temple. It is one of the World Heritage sites in Kyoto. You can read about it here. There is a trail on the side of the mountain, so you can overlook the lake and temple buildings. You can take your shoes off and tour one of the main buildings, but we didn't do that. We just ate some mochi while we sat outside. We brought the mochi with us, but there is a small restaurant at the temple. I don't know if it was vegetarian-friendly, so we didn't stop there. The leaves are turning colors this time of year, so there were tourists everywhere to get photos of the trees.
