Japan (Kyoto & Osaka) Trip Nov 09 - Day 3

Travel Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (Japan Trip)
Just another great day to kick start Day 3! :D

It has been another busy day, waking up and found out that there is an escalation from the US that need to be resolved. (Luckily Roger is covering during US prime time while Herb is OOO) and he manage to come out with a good work around before a root caused could be identified. So, the half day is pretty much resolving and updating the required changes to the files and send the communication out to the team.

More photos after the jump... :)

A lot of bicycle outside the K's House

On top of that, also found that there is a dead mice in my store room. (Yes you could smell it when he is dead - you know what I mean). Most of the items in the store have been removed and finally we manage to find where it is located. (It is a small poor mice and hopefully none will come into the house anymore... - praying hard).

Anyway, I am back on track with my Japan trip photos again... :"P (After a series of travel and small project that I have on hand during my trip). Seriously, I think I have forgotten where I have been during the Japan trip.:"P Actually, come to think about it, I think I just don't know the name of the location (I am bad in remembering name, I guess I just keep snapping photos until I didn't paying attention to the name of the location where I have been to). So, in order to complete this post, again, I have visited ML FB photo album for information. :"P (Thanks to you again ML).

The books that telling the difference of the town

After that, we went to the "Great View", where pretty much you will need to climb like may be 20-30 minutes of mountain routes to reach there. at that area, there will be a huts letting the visitors to do some praying as well as resting. You will find that there is a lot of ornaments in the hut, stating the history of that area. You could feel the antique-ness of the hut, as well as the history of it when you rest in it.
