On Saturday I went to Kyoto to visit a friend of mine who I met when I studied abroad in Tokyo. We climbed Mt. Fuji together, and even live near each other back in America. I woke up early to meet him, and we visited Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera. It was nice talking and catching up with him. My favorite part of the trip was probably the mitarashi dango with vanilla ice cream! It was so delicious and a perfect blend of sweet and salty! If you are ever headed to Kiyomizu-dera, be sure to look out for the mitarashi dango with ice cream.
