Kyoto Family Meet Up

Off to Japan for a long weekend to meet up with my folks who are walking in the Japanese Alps for a couple of weeks - how jealous am I?!  They elected to not come to Taiwan this time, but I did not have to have my arm twisted too hard to meet them in Japan.
It's my second trip to Kyoto, and my fourth to Japan, but this time should be extra special, with the fire Gonzo (or something) festival igniting the hills, and from what I understand all the women running around in Kimonos.
My word - it's been a busy couple of weeks at work - but got some good results out and I am looking forward to seeing them develop in the coming months.
But for now ... time for boarding.

The festival is called the Gozan no Okuribi 五山送り火. I was in Kyoto for it back in 1990. It's a pretty impressive sight, but you will need to find a good vantage point (your hotel's rooftop?) in order to see all five characters. Have a good time!
