Kyoto 2016

I recently took a trip to Kyoto while I was in Japan on business. I had previously gone to Kyoto back in May 2015, but I was only able to visit a few places (the Golden Temple and Nijo Castle). I never ended up blogging about that … but oh well. Here’s a pic of me in front of the Golden Temple, so you know it was real.

 

For this recent trip to Kyoto, I actually planned pretty much an entire weekend! I packed my Tortuga backpack, hopped on a bullet train to Kyoto, and figured out on the fly how to connect to other train lines and subways from Kyoto Station.

Here’s a visual journal of this Kyoto trip:

It was pretty action packed. Here’s a map of the locations featured above:

 

In upcoming blog posts, I’ll briefly talk about my experiences at each place! Stay tuned!
