Made it to Kyoto, one of the most amazing cities  we have traveled to.  The first hotel in Okayama provided eye warmers which heated up for about 10 minutes after they were opened.



We visited the Zenkoji Temple in Nagano during a break from our ski vacation. At the temple, you can pay a small fee and shake out a small wooden dowel from a metal box. Then you place the dowel back inside the metal shaker and open the drawer matching the number on your wooden dowel. In each drawer is a stack of papers detailing your fortune.

Eli gave it a go, but sadly he got bad luck.
