We’re staying in a more residential area of Japan this month, without a car. Our hosts who live on the property, Momoko and Tsutomu, have been kind enough to pick us up at the train station, show us around, and offer us rides when they are headed into town. (There are also buses from our neighborhood that run into Kyoto periodically, but we haven’t tried them yet.)
Theo and I went with Momoko to a shop selling produce from nearby farmers to stock up on fruits and vegetables. On the way back, we stopped at Tozaki Shrine.
Perhaps it goes without mentioning, but Theo liked ringing the bell.
