Kyoto, Japan

Over the past weekend, we spent two days in Kyoto, one of Japan's most fascinating cities. We learned about such things as guardian foxes possessing human souls through their fingernails, creating "nightingale" (squeaking) wooden floors in castles to warn of intruders, and Rachael and our friend Jenn explored the world of the geisha first-hand.

Needless to say, it was a phenomenal weekend and two days very well spent. In the next few blogs, I'll try to share some of the highlights from our trip, so tune in often for updates and leave your questions and comments for us anytime.


  1. Beautiful! I'm excited to see more, and will be checking in frequently.

  2. The above comment was from J. R had been using my computer and her account was still active. Sorry R.
