Kyoto, The Ancient Capital - Day 1

Last week, Dave and I traveled by Shinkansen to Kyoto for a short vacation.

After checking into our hotel, The New Miyako, we took a walk to see some of the sights: Nishi-Hongan-Ji 

Nishi Hongwanji

and the Nishijin Textile Center. This was rather disappointing. There was one little textile exhibit on the 3rd floor, goods for sale on the 2nd floor, and a couple of craft people silently working on the 1st floor - not too exciting.

Next, we tried to find the Raku Museum, but struck out. Instead we took a bus back to the hotel and took a nap. Dinner was had at one of the many restaurants in the train station.
