Back in Kyoto

It's that time again...Gion Matsuri! I'll be in Kyoto until Wensday. This picture was taken during last year's festival when, by chance, I was invited to meet Mamechiho by a young American exchange student's host family (as his interpreter).

Let's hope the rain holds off for what could be my last Gion Matsuri for a long time... (ioi)

Melissa, I found your blog yesterday while looking for interesting photos from Japan. I, too, lived and traveled throughout Japan and China about 15 years ago. Your stories and incredible photography reminded me of the great times I had exploring both countries. I was wondering if you would be open to sharing one image in particular - to print and frame in my family room - if you still have the high resolution version of it. the url is http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1769/713/1600/DSC06885.jpg Might you be able to suggest how? - Thanks in advance. Iro iro arigato. Marc
