My friend got an emergency call and had to drive back to Nagoya. After saying a good-bye to her, I was climbing up little paths to 清水寺（Kiyomizu-dera).
The popular expression “to jump off the stage at Kiyomizu” is the Japanese equivalent of the English expression “to take the plunge”. (according to Wikipedia)
Taking a cab to hotel, then I went out for town to get some souvenirs for my family.
I was going to have dinner at a restaurant, but too tired to find a good one. Also, it started raining, so I just bought whatever looked delicious at Depa-Chika (デパートの地下）which means food/drink section of department store, where you can usually find good food.
This store was established in 1781. hey The green tea company I purchased souvenir was more than 300 years old. Wow, this is Kyoto!
