Here is the link to a post which tells about our meeting in Kyoto: http://mamabicycle.blogspot.jp/2014/07/i-met-american-friend-and-dutch-couple.html ,and I have copied and pasted some of the contents of the post. I would appreciate it if you would read and correct the post and the contents. Thank you in advance.

We ate tan-tan-noodle soup(ramen) which I recommended
We successfully met at Shijyou Karasuma. Then we walked around the streets as other people did. We talked about ourselves and the festival while walking. It just was a shame that there were no stands along every street which were located last week, during the first Gion Matsuri Festival.

Even though there were no stands which would sell food and drink a lot of peoplr walked along the streets while looking at the festival floats there.

It was not easy to drink because of lacking of the street stands. So I specially searched for a bar and a shop which sold drinks. I heard that walking to drink was not allowed in the Netherlands. I was happy that I was born in Japan considering that. We then bought some drink to walk to drink, hehe.

We sat to drink at the specially set bar
I always sleep fast. However, we stayed outside until 11 P.M. We spent a happy time. I chose the last restaurant which seemed easygoing. See you next time. Hope that you will continue your wonderful trips in Japan.
