I almost feel bad because I’m like 24 hours late in reporting but it’s been crazy with trying to coordinate skype calls from the other side of the planet!
We’re on vacation in Kyoto (normally we live in Korea). Yesterday we made a day trip to a cute little town (think… Japan’s version of summery towns in maine or vermont) called Arashiyama, just a bit west of Kyoto.
We weren’t originally planning to really explore the big temple nearby, Tenryu-ji zen temple. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site. We didn’t realize, but you can really explore the whole temple and the surrounding zen gardens. It may well be the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.
The spot where it all happened was amazingly pretty empty of people, considering it was our favorite spot on the grounds.There’s a tiny bridge over a stream, with a willow hanging over it. He got down on one knee and made a speech about love being an adventure and everything we’ve done together being only the start of a journey. He asked with a really amazing palladium ring that was custom designed — the center stone is a little less than half a carat of black diamond, the next ones are aquamarine, and the outer stones are iolite. The inscription is the meanings of our given names in latin. I said yes, and we made our way back to the hotel to watch Japanese game shows on TV. Now for some giant pics.
