Ladies in Kimono, Kyoto Street

Originally uploaded by speattle.
After the night's rest, we headed out to Kyoto, before the conference in Tokyo began. 3hrs bullet train ride was smooth, making it quiet unbelievable that it's at 150km/hr speed. Unlike Tokyo, Kyoto keeps more of the traditional look & feel; less of tall skyscrapers, people looking more relaxed. While searching for temples crowded with kids on school field trips, I saw these two ladies in Kimono, another rare sight in Tokyo. It was a nice treat as I didn't really get to run into another. Now I can say I've been to Japan, for sure~~~
