I know it’s a little early to say this, but Kyoto is my favorite city in Japan.
We woke up early and took the Shinkansen, a super fast, super organized rail system that can take you all over the country.
After we arrived at Kyoto station, we wandered the streets in search of our hostel and I became enamoured with the little bakeries and boutiques that lined the streets and alleyways.
Kyoto has a beautiful balance of old and new. You’ll see businessmen and geisha, skyscrapers and temples. It’s easy to picture myself starting a new life here.
