I'm not a cat person but this temple was pretty cute. The largest one cost ¥5000, smallest was ¥300 and about the size of a cell phone charm. Right paw up is for welcoming, people, left for money. #manekineko #gotokuji #cattemple #東京 #ネコ #招き猫

It's a 40' (12 m) fall from that veranda to the ground and legend has it that if one survives the fall/jump a wish would be granted. We were hungry and opted for lunch instead. #🍜 We arrived around 8:30 am to avoid tour groups and school trips; it opens at 6 am and was packed by 9:30. #Kyoto #京都 #kiyomizudera #清水寺

Just a little snowy out there today in #Niigata Prefecture. The 3 1/2 hour drive took almost 6. Absolutely beautiful to see from the warm car though! Nearly 10" fell today and 6-8" is predicted for tomorrow. Perfect for ⛷ and 🏂 #雪 ❄️ #新潟県
