homasse just posted the pictures she took with her phone when we met her in Kyoto. Which means I can now say JESUS CHRIST KABUKI STAR to you!

Go look at the pictures before you come back here. I'll wait.Collapse )

03:53 pm - Japanese shamaness

(That should technically be "shamanka," if we're using the term properly to mean a female shaman.)

20 min. 3.5 mi. Total: 522.8 From Rivendell: 60.1 mi. Leave a streambed.

You people are falling down on the job and not complaining that I'm not biking! :D

08:10 pm - More photos!

I've got the last photos from my camera before it finally quit working entirely processed and posted:


It's the last two albums, the Inari Shrine in Kyoto and Kyoto and Temples.

rachelmanija is going to mail me the SD cards from her digital camera, and once I get them I'll download them with my SD card reader and post them, but it'll probably be a week or so before that happens. So you'll have to wait to see photos of the fox shrine we found until then. :D
