His mother and he got interested in so many things they came across. We stopped every time they found something, and took more time than I planned. I chose the route to Kiyomizu temple by way of passing by Yasaka Pagoda. On the street to and from Kiyomize temple, there are many shops, and they sell verious souvenirs like Japanese fans, Yatsuhashi, potteries, seven flavored hot papper and so on. Of course we got Black sesami icecream and his mother got a cucumber pickle. It was stuck with something like a wooden chopstick. His mother liked its tastes very much. She and I shared it.
When we were walking along the Ninenzaka, we stopped a certain icecream stand selling pumpkin soft icecream. The owner insisted he was the most popular icecream maker. He showed me the printed paper which said that he was No.1 in the Yahoo page and Geogle page.
I don't know whether it was true or not, but he said he used to be a chef of a certain hotel restaurant so he had the very skill to make nice and rare flavor of icecream. But I wonder why he quit this job and started icecream business.
