A Night of Singing and Dancing (Kansai, Japan Trip 2012, Day 12)

This is a day of travelling…

First, we travelled from Kyoto (京都) to Mount Hiei (比叡山). Here, we visited the Enryaku-ji (延暦寺). The temple is part of the world heritage site in Japan. It is one of the most important monasteries in Japanese history and the headquarters of the Tendai sect of Japanese Buddhism.

After that, we took the ropeway down to Sakamoto and switched to a train to Otsu. That was where the fun started! After checking into our hotel, we decided to go to a nearby temple to take a look. Guess what? We chanced upon a dance festival cum temple fair! There were traditional Japanese singing and dancing performances. Visitors like us could join in the fun too and of course we did! :D
