Japan, 2001

Osaka, where even the Ferris wheel is built on top of another building!

Kyoto, from the temple grounds of Kiyomizu-dera.

The 3 springs at the temple, with the water from each supposed to provide specific benefits. Yuko is sampling the "grow taller" spring... Don's bad joke.

...there be more dragons...

Byodo-in, formerly a private retreat, now a temple ground, and featured on the 10 yen coin.
