It was a damp but pleasant day, after raining all morning. I was inside a tiny little cafe near Kyoto having a green tea. It was warm and smelled so nice. I drank it while I watched the rain outside and watched a few people walk by with purpose and umbrellas. I saw a tiny edge of light in the sky and thought things might change, so I [somewhat reluctantly] geared up with all my camera equipment and hiked over to this nearby bamboo forest. The sun came out and started melting all the morning rain into a foggy mist that fell down around and behind me.
