Shinto ChaXi

We hiked up behind one of the largest Shinto complexes in Southern Kyoto, walking along a stream, and stroling just fast enough to keep the mosquitoes at bay.

We came to a beautiful spot on one of the many branching trails, Shinto shrines in every direction, and made chaxi by one we found captivating.

Quite a nice session, and our last in Japan. Just as I was getting use to having matcha at the end of our chaxi’s too…

I’m so happy Mr. Koike has taken to the idea of chaxi. I think by the time I return (with Institute members), he will have a group up and running, making matcha in nature all over Japan. One can hope!

  1. Was this the Fushimi Inari shrine with the thousands of torii gates? If it is, we visited this one too- they filmed Memoirs of a Geisha there. : ) Beautiful place!
