Artisteer - Web Design Generator

Web Design Generator - Artisteer (Mac & PC) is a fun, low priced tool I used to make this and other custom WordPress based websites, including the new Savage Japan Podcast site and redesigned Savage Japan Movie Reviews site. Artisteer can also be used for general website layout, Blogger and other platforms. No programming skills required. I enjoyed using this product so much, I sought out one of their ad links to place here.

Kyoto is a City of Water.

This corridor of water was passed as I headed to the western edge of Kyoto via Marutamachi Dori, on my first bicycle outing to Arashiyama.

Though perhaps not intertwined with waterways as much as the east side of Kyoto with its large aquaduct network fed by Lake Biwa, the west side of Kyoto still enjoys an abundant supply of water washing its way down from the northern and western slopes.

The city of Kyoto also hosts 3 substantial rivers within its perimeter: the Kamogawa, the Takanogawa, and the Hozugawa (which is called Katsuragawa downstream of the Togetsukyo Bridge).
