      ... we bought 21 day passes, the longest you can buy. True to form, we nearly missed the bus again! Jess had to run. Kyoto Station has to be seen to be believed. It is regal among train stations, a citadel of steel and glass. Georgie saw a set of about a thousand stairs and dared herself to run up from bottom to top, which she did.
