Today and the next 3 days are free for me because Stan our Professor is helping to put on a Architecture conference this weekend. My main goal for the weekend is to finish seeing all the sites in Kyoto. The first one up was to go see Nijo Castle but on the way there I got distracted by a canal that was converted into a cool public park space.
next, I headed around to the Imperial Palace grounds and made my reservation at the Housing Office to see the Katsura Imperial villa on Monday.
Then I got on the subway to go see the castle.
