... from painting on them. Umeda Station was pretty impressive too. It's a head station and each train track has two platforms (one on each side) so that people can get off on one side and when everyone is off the seats on the train automatically spin around and the doors on the other side open so that new passengers can get on.

There were 4 different types of trains we could choose from to get to Kyoto. Local, Semi-Express, Express and ...

Next stop is Hiroshima!

Thanks for reading.

A travel blog entry by jarcher106


We tried to get an early start in order to beat some of the heat of the day and fit in our ambitious day of temple hopping planned.
