Kyoto day 1 - part I
And then we went to Kyoto.
We only stayed two nights in Kyoto and the days there were so condensed, I had to split them up in multiple parts.
We got the obligatory bento boxes at the station and took Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto.
After almost a week of constant walking around Tokyo, it was a nice a break to sit in the train and see the country roll by - almost wish the train wasn't as fast :-)
We got a quick glimpse of Mount Fuji thanks to Elinor's keen eyes, ate our bentos and chilled.
When we arrived in Kyoto it was sunny, hot and we were tired carrying our heavy luggage, but arriving at our Airbnb machiya was like stepping in to a piece of Japanese heaven: We had the whole house to our selves (after spending a week in a 1 room apartment), the house was so incredibly well done and stylish giving us an immediate sense of calm and tranquillity.
