Thumbnail for Arishiyama Home – Kyoto, Japan

A very pretty and well-kept home in the Village of Arishiyama on the edge of Kyoto. Once again we have a bicycle left unattended with just a flimsy lock on the back wheel. Not the 40lb chain and a telephone pole that you need to keep your bike safe in Vancouver (and then they’d still […]
