Kyoto, before the Conference

This morning before beginning our first day of touring we are exploring the Miyako Hotel, where we're staying. We find many wonders: it appears that all the staff speak English; the grounds include a lovely garden with pond and a bird sanctuary with labeled trees and bushes; behind the hotel there is a path to the top of a hill overlooking Kyoto; along the path are a mushroom farm, animal-statued shrines, and a porcelain picnic table and stools. Back in the room we prepare for our next outing.
