After arriving to Japan through Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan, we were amazed at how different the country was. Everything was different down to the toilets they used. We immediately took a cab to the temple we had planned to visit.
We drove all the way from the airport to Kyoto, Japan where the temple was, about an hour and a half drive. On the drive, we ...
