Just opened this. So good - shame it’s not a regular addition to the range.

And I’m back now. It’s a bit cooler than I’ve been used to over the last couple of weeks.

Well it’s 5:10am and I’m leaving Kyoto station for the last time on this trip. Today’s chosen method of transport is the airport transfer bus. Due to leave at 5:10am - left bang on time!

The castle itself was good to have a look around as well - even if they haven’t finished building it yet!

The views from the top were incredible. Hilkone castle well worth a visit.

Nice place to have a look around. Very hot again.

Back on a train today. On the way to another castle. As usual train perfectly to schedule.

Went to see the imperial palace grounds and then went onto Nishiki market.

So today’s transport of choice was the underground. As expected ran perfectly to time.

This makes so much sense.. Busy crossroads, so all four roads stop at once. Pedestrians can then cross in any direction they need to - including diagonally across the middle.

Had a snack lunch underneath the Kyoto tower. There’s a whole food court there with a varied lot of food stands anything from sushi to pancakes to fried chicken etc. Thought I’d try the tempura stuff. Went for peppers, sweet corn & chicken. Very nice.

Also went for a look at this shrine. There’s a trail up the mountain through loads of these arches. Heard it was a couple of hours round trip from one of the guides. As it was so hot I didn’t go all the way round!
