The morning started with a campus Tour of Ryukoku University, the wonderful school that is hosting our stay here in Kyoto. After we meet our lovely student buddies, Natsumi and Keiko, we were taken to Izusen, for an authentic vegetarian Japanese lunch. I have no idea about half the stuff I ate but there were delicious and I'm trying to be adventurous with food here and try and eat everything.

The rest of the afternoon was spent at Kinkakuji Temple or the Golden Pavilion, Ryoanji Temple and Kiyomizu Temple. Most of the pictures shown here are from Kinkakuji and Kiyomizu which were the most spectacular.
I finished the day souvenir shopping where I just had to buy myself an authentic silk Japanese fan to keep me cool in this insanely hot weather.
I later took it for a stroll in the evening to grab dinner with my group mates.
