After a short sleep, it was time to get up. First I went to Arishayama bamboo forest, 230 JPY bus. Early in the morning, there was not too big a crowd. I had ice-T, 140 JPY. Returned back to the hotel, showered, and packed.

Close by was Kyoto Imperial palace with a nice garden and I think I saw a wedding.
