On sunday we went off to see Yamadera in its spring green magnificence.
We stopped at the nice soba restaurant again and this time I remembered to take a photo before I wolfed (wolved?) it down. Bowls of tempura soba all around.
Then we had goma (sesame seed) flavoured soft serve ice-cream.
Unlike last time, and every other temple we have been to in Japan, we were among only a handful of visitors. It was incredibly peaceful.
