I've stayed at this business hotel numerous times. Location and reasonable price are the main reasons. Right outside Kyoto station, so close it's almost connected. About 5500yen per night. Clean rooms. Restaurant on main floor. Staff are not too generous with the smiles or the English, but do their job. Busy place. Across the street is the underground mall connected to Kyoto station. Lots of restaurants inside.

Today was a day of rest for us, with no plans set in place. After our Scottish breakfast we set off to navigate our way across to the other side of Kyoto station. And that's no mean feat. We eventually made it, to find Kyoto Tower right there, diagonally opposite. The view from the top (100 metres from the observation floor) was extensive, although …
... a moment. Have we told you the weather has been great? Continually around the 22-24 degrees with sunshine most of the time. We continued along the Philospher's Walk and then Diane and Celie found a seat while Cam and Omi headed up a steep hill to Honen-ji.

After a stroll through the greenery we met a very, very holy creature ...

Finally, etiquette. Don't cross your chop sticks, sorry hashi. Don't skewer your meat with the tip of a hashi. Don't stick your hashi upright in your rice bowl. Lift your bowl to just below your chin, don't lower yourself to the ...
... thought we could pick up some other bits and pieces to snack on our walk back to the station. We saw a restaurant which had quite a few sushi variety boxes in the window and they were cheap! For a huge party platter, it was ¥3,000. I was thinking, we totally overpaid for our dinner! We ended up ordering a ¥900 variety box to have it takeaway.
The takeaway box was so beautifully presented and wrapped! So we had our sushi and the grade and taste was quite similar to ...
This morning we got up and decided to brave the Rail network and try for a trip on the bullet train to Kyoto! having been tutored in the abstract art of commuter rail ticketing and timetabling by a professional this trip went much smoother than our initial foray into the world of JR rail. We arrived in Kyoto and negotiated our way to the bus terminal......Holy kimono Batman, the bus timetables made the rail one look like maths in the beer garden and this was ...
