KyotoOctober 19 in Japan
We have finally come to Kyoto! I love this part of Japan! We arrived at Kyoto station to a flurry of activity on our platform, and wondering what was causing all the excitement. We soon realised that the very rarely seen "Dr Yellow" Shinkansen was on the tracks! With Google on our side we discovered that this train does a lot of track testing and monitoring of the train systems and apparently it's quite a special moment to see it!
The late arrival to our accommodation meant only a short stroll around the Gion area for dinner. No geisha to be seen this time around, though we weren't on the lookout either. For a Friday night this area seemed to be unusually quiet, or we just happened to skip the more populated areas. Not many photos as we had already seen Gion (and geisha!) the last time we visited Kyoto. Happy to have had a quiet evening and recharge 😊Read more
