Day 4, part 4: Kyoto, Kawabata Dori and Sanjo Dori

Kawabata Dori (Kawabata Street) runs alongside the east bank of the Kamo River. Here we walk from Shirakawa-Minami Dori north to and across the Sanjo Bridge. The street is named for the Nobel Prize winning novelist Yasunari Kawabata.

Elegant people on the Sanjo bridge... elegance and graciousness in abundance here

These rocks are iwasaka

and here is the view from that bridge today
