We walked around the grounds and up the short walking trail. Some areas were closed that day. There were a lot of people and we skipped some of the crowded activities such as the tea ceremony. We were able to enjoy some of the music performances.
It was a very hot day and we decided to walk back to the car rather than stand in line for the shuttle and be stuck in a hot bus for 10-15 minutes. On the way back we stopped at Big Basin Cafe to rest and get drinks.
