Gion • 祇園
10:15 Got woken up by the contractors. I really do admire Japanese people for their insistency in speaking Japanese regardless of the recipients Japanese level, however, they do very politely and patiently repeat and repeat.
11:50 Hair cut and color. You know how so many Japanese people have such great hair and fashion sense, do they all go to big salons? And as a tourist, how can you get the look without breaking the piggy bank?
14:45 Set off walking to Yasaka-jinja 八板神社
15:50 Two beibei, one offered to take a photo for me, and didn’t know how to operate, instead asked his friend to help.
16:20?? Leaving 八板神社
16:38 Leaving 2nd time
18:00 Home. Went back home to sit back and snack a little. And a good thing too, as it started pouring!
19:19 The rain let up and went out again. A drug store right opposite McDonalds at Shinjo四條 is a two floor shop and seemed to have quite a range of things. Unfortunately it didn’t seem to have too much of a discount so i decided to leave it for next time. They open till 22:30.
