27 Oct

Today is my last day in Kyoto. I have places to go and shopping to do.

I wonder how early the stores will open. I know the department stores don’t open until 10 AM.

I am thinking of studying the way of tea.

So of course I need a kimono.

Actually I bought a beautiful green kimono the last timeI was here. Today I would like to find an obi and cord and whatever else I need to complete the ensemble.

I’ll post pictures when I get home.

And today is my last chance to get sesame tofu.

I want new geta.

and stationery

and spices…

    Have a super last day and I hope you get everything that you want! Emily has the geta, only she gets them at Kohl’s 🙂 We call them finger toe socks, but I am sure they aren’t as sturdy as yours!

      Oh fun. My granddaughters love having Japanese socks. I did get everything I wanted and more.
