It was great to meet Giye and Pepi who came all the way from Santiago, Chile for the first time in Ebisu! Giye, of course, is the artist for DOG EATERS. We ate ramen with Isaac.

They gifted me a designer poncho from Chile, too!

This 3.0 pounder feels very nice and would be appropriate for woman.

The Shinkansen has a brief view of Mt. Fuji on the way to Kyoto.

It’s like cosplay near Kiyomizu-dera. Busloads of tourists, mostly Asian start unloading from late morning.

We went to pray for Junko’s mother who passed on December 29, 2005 and is interred at Otani Hombyo. Junko’s grandmother is interred there, too.

The founder of this sect lived in this cave. This is the entrance.

And this is how it looks from the top.

From that cave to the current temple is quite a distance in time and expense. Every person interred is logged in a database. Once uploaded, no one will ever truly die!
