    ... crafts museum, we finally figured out that museum actually translates in Japanese to mean a display. So, the museum is actually a huge craft and souvenir store with a few collected pieces that weren't for sale. Nice extensive range of crafts from every Japanese corner, no room in the luggage for a very shiny set of replica Edo armour though. The Heian shrine has a huge garden with several ponds. The largest one is covered with patches of water ...

    ... I headed back to Kyoto main station to get my local train back to base and feeling confident I was getting the hang of Japanese trains I jumped aboard, only realising after about half an hour and not recognising any station names that I was in fact heading up the East side of Lake Biwa instead of the West! So a hop off at the next station and back to Kyoto before transferring to the correct one I made it back, albeit at nearly 10pm, ...

I have to admit something: I didn't get it. I was spectacularly underwhelmed. I guess I've probably ...

    ... and of course minus the hordes of people it looks stunning, however we weren’t too impressed with it once we actually got there. Don’t get me wrong it is nice, it’s quite scenic in parts but the impressiveness is sort of taken away when there are hundreds of people milling around and even taxi’s driving through! I sort of expected the bamboo forest to be more densely populated with bamboo as well, it was a bit of a let-down but at least we ...

    ... we didn't have much time for questions as we had a train to catch so we never really heard why this was the case. After the talk we headed by streetcar to the train station where we caught a bullet train to Osaka and then another to Kyoto. The outside of the Kyoto train station looks extremely modern. We happened to be staying less than a 5 minute walk for the station which made for a perfect location for travel as also in front ...
