First blog post in Japan. Where do I even begin! Just finished day 3 in Kyoto and have already experienced so much.
Taka gave us the run down of Kyoto and certain etiquette. Including an awesome hand drawn map that I have found to be extremely useful everyday.
The first day a few of us traveled by train to the Kyoto station for some yen. Once we got our yen we were on our own for lunch and to find our way back to our temple. We wondered into a series of ramen restaurants. First time ordering a meal with out talking to anyone. Just pushed a button that had a picture on it that looked like it would taste good. Once I inserted my money into the machine a ticket came out and before I knew it a lady was leading us to table. Our ramen was delivered in a matter of minutes. Delicious.
Surprisingly the train ride back was easier than expected.
First night sleeping on the floor with a pillow filled with….plastic? It wasn’t as bad as I thought. The Tylenol pm might have helped somewhat :)
