Shrine in Gion

I think this is the Choin-in shrine, right next to Yasaka (actually I know that's where it is, but not sure of the name). It's in Gion.

Here we are having a cool ice cream treat.  D and I were brave and opted for the mixed vanilla/green tea ice cream.  The kids went for straight vanilla.  A did consent to taste my green tea ice cream.  For the record, its not bad, but better mixed with vanilla than plain.  Not too sweet, but then nothing in Japan really is.  Mostly I like it better that way.

I liked the way I could frame the gate in the arch.
