No tickets necessary but to see the whole complex you have to hike 5km, and it isn't flat by any stretch of the imagination. I drench my shirt getting to the top but enjoy every second of the hike. There are literally tens of thousands of gates each erected by a different person.
I think I'll have to look this one up later because I was really impressed by the whole outdoor compound.
Kyoto was awesome but I had to leave and head to Osaka, via a less than 20 minute shinkansen, to hop on the plane over to Dubai. I contemplate taking a brief city tour of Osaka but decide to check in and relax at the airport for an extra few hours and spend the time catching up on much overdue blogging.
I get to Dubai and am all excited to make the most of my layover, which turns out to be 6 hours and not 30 hours which I had previously thought it was. Well, looks like I will have to go back to Dubai because apparently you aren't even allowed to leave the airport when you are connecting on Emirates, no matter how long your layover is... I finish catching up on my blog and sleep before boarding another plane headed to Moscow! I'm going to Russia!!!
