    We set off from Shinagawa station on our first Shinkansen (The Hikari) to Kyoto. Travelling at speeds of 175mph we reach Kyoto station in around 2:45mins, then at Kyoto station we switched to the JR Nara Line to Nara station. This took about 50mins nd we met Ben at the station. We had lunch at a ramen restaurant, I had Pork ramen with sticky rice, Ben had the same and Kate had a chicken broth ramen. We visited all the sights that we set out to see, the main two for us were obsvly the deer roaming in the park and the giant Todaiji.

    Up abit later than yesterday (nearly 11miles we needed the lay in) we set off for Akihabara. Arriving from the station we were greeted with a huge Sega sign lit up on a building. The weather was boiling hot! Not a wise choice to wear skinnys.. We walked into countless arcades, figurine and manga stores and indulged into everything Otaku (Kate even bought stuff for herself) My hightlight was visiting super potato, a retro video game store that's a Mecca to gamers.
