Kyoto is stunning. A delightful balance of modern and traditional, young and old, but all maintaining a lovely aesthetic. Imagine anything in the US keeping age-old crafts and precision from hundreds and hundreds of years ago?
Origami, calligraphy, gardening, clothing, cooking, poetry, Geisha, pottery, weaving, figurines, dolls, umbrellas, noodles, rice, shrines. The list seems endless.
And all of it bathed in an ever-present Japanese kindness and respect.
Kyoto is one of the great gems this world has on offer.
We all will miss you.
