Your fearless tourists braved the elements and continued their touring through 8″+ of rain in the last 2 days. We caught the southern edge of a typhoon travelling between South Korea and Japan. Visited a few temples, did a museum and shopped at our favorite store, Psycho Bunny. The Japanese love English titles and store names even though few speak English. The main temples we are saving for the next few days when the weather will improve.
The Kamo-gawa river runs through the center of Kyoto. Usually a mild stream with promenades on either side. The young hang out on the promenades at night and play music, sing, dance etc. Totally out of bounds now.
