  11. What a stunning photo. I miss Japan. I used to work for an organization called the Reiyukai and travelled to Japan on a regular basis. Kyoto was definitely one of my favourite prefectures.

  14. Lovely, just lovely Nat...I used to have several Japanese dolls (they were gifted to my parents by Japanese sailors when we lived in Goa, a well-known port in India) and this picture reminds me of one of them.

  15. Thanks to all the Photo Hunters for stopping by!

    Pearl,
    The cultural bits are what I like best! :)
    Hope you get another chance to visit.

    Janet,
    Glad to satisfy your Japanese fix! :)

    Christine,
    I LOVE Kyoto!! I haven't travelled too much in Japan but it's certainly one of my favourite places.

    Lissa,
    Yes it was a real treat! I'm so glad we got tickets.

    Lotus,
    Some of those Japanese dolls are truly gorgeous, fragile though. Someday I'd love to have one but not until we stop moving around I think.

    Thanks Happy Reader!
