Today we visited Kiyomizu dera where we learned a little about Buddhism. We visited a few areas of this UNESCO World Heritage site. The Main Hall with its wooden stage, the "Love Stones" and drank water from the Otowa waterfall for good fortune. We then went shopping down the main path and ate a few snacks along the way.
Our next stop was a ninja restaurant. An all you can eat buffet of Japanese and American food. Oh, and of course, all you can eat dessert.
Next, back to Otemon School for our Tea Party. Here your children ate a light snack performed and met their host family.
With a little sadness in us, we sent them off with their new family knowing they're in good hands. Our next post will be on Friday when your children return from homestay. So, until Friday....
