We planned out each train we had to take to get back to the guest house, pick up our bags and then take the next train from Kyoto to Kansai ...

After our miserable defete by the janaese yeserday, we vowed to turn the tide..... we would see an entire itinerary today.....come hell or cold water!! We climed out of floor bound beds and were fed and watered early! we armed ourselves with the oposing itinerary (western kyoto and surrounding countryside) we had folded bus maps and we were off by 0900 hrs. We hopped from one bus to the next aiming for the large cartoon temple in the top left...... unfortunaitly the bus company ...
