Kyoto Old and New
The top picture is of a symbol of a Torii on the fence surrounding the Hiragiya Ryokan in Kyoto. This is an old but very prestigious place to stay - but not on my budget. The new round building looked great and I would like to know who the architect was. Many of the old areas that Estelle and I used to walk through when we were there in 1978 have now gone to be replaced by ugly concrete and glass buildings although not everything has changed.
