About Kyoto: Kyoto offers a unique opportunity for any visitor to Japan, being the home to many of UNESCO's world heritage sites, and having lent it's name to the Kyoto protocol it promises not to disappoint even the pickiest of tourist. It is in many ways, the Japan I think most of us see in our dreams. A wonderful mixture of ancient temples and shrines blended with modern architecture that doesn't seem to clash somehow. The kimono clad maiko, and unsui-monks in their robes promises an everlasting impression of a place steeped in tradition. It is a place so easy to fall in love with, and I did, head over heels... I went to Kyoto to celebrate my birthday and to get a break from media's pictures following the earthquake and tsunami. Pictures that seemed unreal but unfortunately, aren't. : ( The link at the top was an idea born after I tried to find a place to donate money to the victims up north but being unable to find a reliable place to do so. A friend told me that that day, the Red Cross offered to match any donation made by one of their own... that's when it suddenly struck me how bad it really was and how easy it would be to help... I'm sure you are well aware of what is going on. And Please Please don't feel forced to do anything you don't feel is right yourself, but I'd appreciate if you took a look at the link below or above. Thanks. www.jrc.or.jp/english/relief/l4/Vcms4_00002070.html
