Kiyomizu-dera Temple and the nearby area. Their famous main hall was under renovation but it was still pretty.
On our way home, we visited Touki Matsuri (Pottery Festival). For 3 days in August, more than 400 ceramic artists and wholesalers come from all over Japan to sell different types of things along the street of Gojozaka.
(Gojozaka is nationally known as the birthplace of Kiyomizu-yaki porcelain.) I have fond memories of my mom taking me and my sister to the festival every year when we were little.
If our rice bowls got broken before the festival or we grew to be able to eat more rice than the size of our current bowl, mom let us pick our own then.
I remember it was a fun but very important and difficult task for a kid. It had to be just the right size and price, and I had to love it since we ate rice almost everyday. Mom was patient with us picking our favorites from thousands of bowls on the street. We went up and down the hill for hours, and she would buy us snacks from food stalls to keep us going😂 🍗🌭🌽🍿🍢🍡🍦 @kikoeats_ramen
