      Sunline Kyoto Gion Hotel is a very good choice to stay in Kyoto, but here's my review:

      ROOM: We have booked a room for four. The room is was quite spacious for Japanese standards. The bathroom is huge, toilet area and bath ares (bathtub for Jacuzzi and shower).

      CLEANLINESS: Super clean (room and bathroom spotless). Nothing to say about the cleanliness of the room, the furniture, the linen and the towels. Everything were in perfect shape and very, very clean.

      STAFF: Very friendly, respectful and always with a contagious smile, despite some difficulty about speaking English.

      RESTAURANT/EATING: The hotel has a restaurant but our reservation did not included meals (or breakfast).

      LOCATION: We had a little trouble finding the address, so the best option is to get a taxi (to get you there for the first time). This hotel is located very close to Yasaka Shrine (4 min. walk), close to transports (bus, stop Gion) and close to commercial and eating area, but the hotel is located in a quiet area, so no noise or very little noise was felt.

      OVERALL: Good choice in Kyoto!

      Samurai Pizza Kaz

      Ok before I start I want to talk about commitment. Today we knew we where doing the Samurai performance and Adam suggested today's tittle be "Samurai Pizza Kaz" a play on Samurai Pizza Cats an old anime. To that I said "Well if that the case we better eat pizza then" and Adam was like "Kay"... and so... to get a terrible/awesome pun name we went and found a pizza store so we didn't have to lie about it.

      Woke ...

      Kyoto - day 2

      ... a 100 metre stretch of tori gates, I couldn't have been more wrong. The tori gates(which are sponsored by local businesses) headed all the way up a mountainside! Once I realised this I was determined to reach the summit. A lot of steps and hundreds(possibly thousands) of tori gates later I reached the top and got some great views of Kyoto's suburbs on the way! It was a great experience and i really have never seen anything like ...

      The city of Ten Thousand Shrines

      ... at noon for my next destination. Perhaps it was a good thing, since temperatures that day were in the high 90's. It's also a good thing that I didn't visit during the New Year Celebrations. Last year 2.6 million people came to the shrine within a 3 day period. I don't mind getting lost in the crowd, but over 2 million is pushing it for me. The festival in Osaka was almost too much.

      Ok that's it for Kyoto. Next up is Nara and the sacred deer!

      ... Kyoto style cuisine is meant to be tasted with the five senses: visual beauty, fragrance, deliciousness, touch and the mind.
      -Kyoto housed the Emperor for over 1,000 years until the Meiji Restoration in 1868 (when the U.S. still a young grasshopper of a country)

      Next, I crossed the street to the Municipal Museum of Modern art to meander through several classical and modern exhibits. Since photos were not allowed, I grabbed my journal and began ...

      Off to Japan we go.

      ... cream, yes we bought ice creams even though it was 11 degrees and ate them on our walk back to the train station where we waited for our train to Universal Studios Japan. On the way into Universal Studios I saw a Starbucks and made a promise with myself that I was going to buy a coffee from there on the way out if I was able to. The first thing we did when we got into Universal Studios was go and buy a locker. And good thing we did. It would have been a pain in ...
