It's been too long since my last post! I'm sorry! It's been exam and mid-term project season over here! A short while ago, I was able to go to Jidai Matsuri (festival of the ages). This festival celebrates the history of Kyoto - from the city's first emperor to the rapid modernization of the Meiji era. It's probably no surprise that I love Japanese history, so I made sure to get there early enough to find some "premier seating," if you will. Four hours early to be exact.
