Tokyo – Kyoto

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. 

In my two days in Japan I have developed a new mantra: if it has a long line it’s gotta be good. We used this formula to grab a bento box before we boarded the train. 

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.
