On Monday eve we went to Kyoto to do some Christmas shopping and visit Arashiyama for their light up festival Arashiyama Hanatouro.

We walked across the bridge to Hourinji Temple.

Which was lit up with a light show and had a group playing traditional music.

We only had about 20mins left before they turned off the lights for the night (at 8.30pm) so we had to move very quickly to the bamboo forest!
