Kyoto, Japan, October 2011

Mary travel blog
Welcome to my trip journal! This is a study tour of some of the famous (and not-so-famous) gardens in Kyoto, Japan. It is sponsored by an American man and his Japanese wife who are editors of the Sukiya Living: The Journal of Japanese Gardening. Our group will include 13 travelers in addition to Douglas and Tamao, some from Europe and one other from the Portland area. I hope you will enjoy my notes and photos of this trip.
