    ... come back. We booked some reserved seats on the next Shinkansen to Kyoto (not window seats unfortunately) but our luggage was too wide for the overhead shelf so we had to have them in front of us. There was enough room, until the people in front wanted to push their seats back, but we kind of stopped them with our bags. Two and a half hours later we finally arrived in Kyoto. It didn't really seem that far plus I had a power nap on the way for a bit. We then got ...

    ... an hour to get to the top, passing many shrines and temples. The scenery when we reached the top was very clear and the sun shone all day over the city of Kyoto. We had lunch in our first proper Japanese hut restaurant, sitting on a cushion on the floor (again Joe couldn't fit his legs under the table) we ordered hot Sake (pronounced sac-ee) this blew my head off, it tastes like hot strong wine and vodka!

    ... y teniamos que ir descalzos por la madera xd On our way back across Japan we stopped off for another night in Kyoto so we had the chance to see some of the stuff we didn't have time for before. Dani, Lizzie and I went to a zen garden. All of the different rocks represented different aspects of life, which was interesting but they wouldn't ...
