Tea at Nishiki Market

The past two times that I went to Kyoto and went through Nishiki Market I would stop at the one stall that sold tea. I happened to get some Roasted green tea this time, Hojicha, and it is definitely tasty. I also have gotten their green tea with roasted rice. I took a quick picture of this box full of the roasted tea leaves. It looked and smelled wonderful as he scooped up and filled a bag for me to take back home to the states.

Kyoto Gion

My trip was now a few month back and I already miss Kyoto. I have spent a little over a month worth of time in that city and it is never enough. I would go again anytime and if I could stay to see all the seasons. Walking around at night is great even if it is a week day Gion is moving about here and there. This entrance to the subway below gave me a good frame for the theater that was lit up in the front.
