My dear friend said she went to Kyoto three or four times and still didn't get to see everything she wanted to see, especially since the landscape comes alive in equally awe-inspiring ways with each season -- temples surrounded by the firey foliage of fall and the soft beauty of the sakura in spring. As she warned, we barely scraped the surface during our first three-day visit. Kyoto, you haven't see the last of us! The highlights were a great guide to get us started. Thanks Afar friends!
