... reception area was gorgeous so we were sure that our rooms were going to be great. Unfortunately we couldn't check in until 2pm, so we quickly bought some umbrellas and headed off in search of lunch. As we are staying on Shijo Dori (the Main Street) our choices were endless.

Today Chloe and i took the shinkansen from Hiroshima to Kyoto with a short 20 minute stop over in Osaka. The first thing i noticed when we got to Kyoto was the white people.

When we were checking in there was a Malay family(with 12 people) trying to also check in but they had only booked 2 beds in a 6 bed dorm, rather than 2 full dorms. Poor guys, we never did find ...
