    ... Forest before I left. I'd see what places were nearby and would go to those as well. Kyoto station is quite impressive. I saw Kyoto Tower just outside as well. Nijo Castle is interesting and very pretty. Unexpectedly, there was a wedding taking place. It was a beautiful setting.

    ... or shrine which exemplifies the tradition and culture of Japan. Each shrine and temple is different to the last and so it's never boring to stop and spend some time looking around.

    We got the train at 12pm from Kyoto Station to Nara (Kyoto and Nara used to be the capital of Japan for hundreds of years before Tokyo). There was a festival on in Nara that happens once a year in winter. Everyone congregates at the bottom of a Hill with long grass all over it, situated in ...

    ... Europe in one week. Getting out of the bus, take a picture, get back on the bus...Next. Very efficient. And the same way, the response of the tourist office lady, when I asked what to do. Tong, tong, tong, here here here, tram, train, metro... park, temple, some green spot on the map, shopping street, boat trip... and my day was planned. Very well planned. Cheap and efficient. Luckily, because whatever starts or ends in the Tennoji train station ...
