Hi all. This is my first entry on the journal - i being chris! Not that much to report today as we spent most of the time travelling across to kyoto. Got here around 3 and checked into k`s house kyoto - just like the tokyo version but a bit bigger! Headed straight out to meet up with Owen, one of my mates from uni. He`s over here teaching english - funny thing for a scots man to do i know. Had a wander round and went for some dinner in a cool place with booths. Then went for some beers and ended up in the red light district. We got a few funny looks from the only bouncers in all of japan!!! All good fun really.
Should mention we visited an "onsen" a couple of nights ago. A very interesting experience! We fancied going to a traditional japanese bath and turned up and went to get changed. We didn`t realise, however, that the baths were segregated and more importantly that you weren`t meant to wear anything! Was very revealing and certainly an experience!
Just to report cos we have been asked - yes we have had heated toilets but they have not started singing at any point.
