Ben and I have enjoyed roaming the temples, palaces, and shrines in Kyoto, but the kids are over it. So yesterday, we saw some different sites. We started with a walk through a bamboo forest. If you were really quiet (which isn’t our kids’ strong suit) you could listen to the leaves rustle in the wind.
We were starting to get complaints about little legs being tired, so we decided it was time to up the fun factor with a trip to the Arashiyama Monkey Park. You can mingle with the monkeys outside, or go inside to feed them through a fence. Fair warning, it’s a long, steep walk up to the monkeys – but well worth it.
