Last day in Kyoto today just about to head to the train station to catch the Shinkansen(bullet train) to Hiroshima. Yesterday we visited a costume museum and the textile centre. We got to try on some Kimonos which made claire mucho happy. Lunch was Japanese Mcdonalds and it was good. Claire got to have yummy cake so was very happy. Tried some sweet Sake last night, it would put hairs on your chest! The beer was much better.
Kyoto has soooooooooooo many temple that we just gave up and only saw a few. We did spot Geishas. The hostel- K's House is great and i would recommend it to anyone.
Hopefully get internet in Hiroshima and upload many more pictures.
well the cake was indeed fantastic!! will have to put the pics up of all the lovely food halls! yes i finally got to put on a kimono- lots of fun trying to figure out how it went on with all the layers it was like a krypton factor challenge! have visited a good few temples- Nara was a highlight with its huge buddha and of course me trying to squeeze through a small hole in a wooden pillar to achieve enlightenment.....will put up the video for that! lots of random sights ....deer roaming the streets, a quick glance of a maiko, so many lights, random vending machines selling all sorts of things....too many things to take in!!! yikes my credit is running out on the computer.....chow for now Claire
