... use and navigate,making getting around quite easy. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about Kyoto, but ill touch on this later. So we managed to find our way to Shinjuku where our hotel was, and where we would be spending the next 7 nights. Coming up from the subway we were hit with the heat of a sunny Tokyo day.
