Hello! I have found my way back to my blog! Somehow I just couldnt make it work after my initial post… most annoying, but honestly was a bit cross-eyed-tired to try to sort it at the end of each day!
Anyway… having a lovely time here with my folks showing them around. Tourism has grown hugely since our last trip. Seems Japan got really popular!
Today’s excursion was to Fushimi Inari. It’s a fab place to check out… literally thousands of tori line the pathways making stunning vermillion tunnels through the green of the mountainside.
Once we started climbing a little further up, the crowds of selfie-taking hoardes thinned a bit which was nice.
Some of the smaller shrines are so very old and worn
I liked finding smaller paths and stone stairways to detour to.
I am glad Jeff is snapping away on his tablet… so now I have my act together at least I have some photos to share
Hundreds of tiny folded cranes
Anyway I hope everyone is doing well and I hope I will be able to return more frequently to annoy you all!
