Location: Kyoto, Japan

MapOur last day in Kyoto has come to an end. And what an end it is. We are dog tired. Exhausted. Craig is upstairs in the bath while I write this and upload some photos from today. We had a big day of walking today, trying to fit in as much as we can before we leave at 8.20 tomorrow morning for Hiroshima.

As you can see in the photos, we went to one castle...Nijo Castle...and three temples today, as well as walked the 2km Path of Philosophy, which was along a tree lined canal. It was very beautiful, but would be best to see when the cherry blossoms are out. A spring visit to Japan might be in order.

We also managed to fit in a lot of shopping today. I think weve spent near $500 in 2 days just on shopping and food!! Fun was had by both of us.

We also threw the Japanese food only out the window this morning when we came across a place that had waffles with chocolate sauce and bananas for breakfast!!! YUMM!!!!

It was a great last day in Kyoto, despite the aching feet, legs, back, etc etc. So, this is a short message today!

We will hopefully update again tomorrow night from Hiroshima, on the last leg of our Japan holiday.

Check out the Kyoto 2 photos we just uploaded.
