          ... we were able to enjoy the rock garden almost for our own, doing nothing, just sitting there and enjoying the calm and the wooden structure. We then went to Ginkaku-ji and this was my favourite place. It had a beautiful garden going up a hill and giving view over Kyoto. I liked it a lot.

          Our last stop was at the Museum of Traditional Arts & Crafts, we were particularly interested with the free demonstration of the pottery and other traditional art thing so we ...

          Once we’d made the five hour journey back we bravely went to a Teppanyaki restaurant where we ate some noodles with seafood, and some kind of hash with cheese sauce on top, which tasted nearly exactly like Heinz spaghetti in tomato sauce with cheese.

          ... few hours getting maps, studying the bus system and routes, locating what we wanted to see in Kyoto and then figuring out how to get there. That time for planning turned out to be a blessing. The next morning we knew where to get tickets, the day-long bus pass was a bargain, where the bus station was and what stop to exit. Kyoto, here we come.

          Our favorite part of Kyoto was in the hills lining the Eastern side of the city. ...

On the way, I had to get to the information desk to purchase a 3 day Kansai Through pass which is of awesome value since it allows you to board any bus or train in Kansai region which includes Kyoto Osaka Nara Kobe among other places. It costs around 5200 yen each but completely worth it in my mind. Once I procured the tickets, I found my way to the taxi stand where I got a cab to Kyoto Royal hotel and spa.

I decided to take the bus because it would save some time compared to the train. But as (almost) always in Japan you have to buy a ticket at a separate counter first and then hand the ticket over to the busdriver. The friendly man behind the counter told me i just missed the bus by 4 minutes and the next one going to Mishima Station ...
