So much for going "old school"!!!!

A travel blog entry by rcarosso


... make our 5:29 train we heard "Carossos" shouted as we entered Kyoto station. And then we had "Small World" moment number two as three Kekaulike teachers, Jan Matsushita, Ronnie Kihara, and Kehau Kahoohanohano were just coming out of the station. Crazy!

The hike to the top takes about 3 hours but can take longer if you stop at any of ...

Bus-hopping around town

A travel blog entry by skyisblu
