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!
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!
