Japan Trip 2018 part 2

June 01, 2018

Our 3rd day in Japan started with a bullet train to Kyoto. We were spending the second half of our sadly too short trip of 4 days sightseeing in Kyoto with Shibata San and Kev Kent from Knifewear. The intention was to soak up the culture and eat more delicious food!

We visited Nijo Castle.

Kyoto is full of ordinary people who dress up in traditional dress for the day.

We strolled through Kyoto market a veritable smorgasbord of every foodstuff under the sun.

We were taken to Kev's favourite restaurant (he writes beautifully about itΒ hereΒ in his blog), aΒ yakiniku (grilled meat) place that specialises in offal.

We ate skewers of meat and drank sake and 'crazy juice'!
