The Shinkansen (bullet train) is just incredibly fast. There was no time to take a photo. It took about 2 hours to get to Kyoto and it was so interesting that the time went super fast.
At the station we found the tourist information office where in true Japanese style the attendant was very helpful
A short taxi ride and we checked in to our modern western style hotel with real beds.
Half an hour later we were off exploring the Nichiki markets. Lots of shops, colour and people.
All in all a full and tiring day.
