Rediscovering Kyoto

2006.08.11 (Fri)

Traveling away from daily life has always been a pleasure to me. Spending luxuary time in different environments in different places almost certainly gets me a chance to refresh and rebuild my aching body and strained mind.
From 8/7/2005 through 8/11/2005, I took a paid vacation to visit Kyoto with my girl. Although I was born in Kyoto myself, my real home time is a bit away from central kyoto area where all the travelers gathered from all over the world to visit temples and shrines.

There was a little trouble at the tokyo station on the way regarding train tickets. We bought round trip tickets from Tokyo to Kyoto one day before. The thing is that a sales person at the JR counter mistakenly sold us a pair of tickets which a train leaves at 7:03 in the morning, not the evening. When we got through the automatic ticket gate, the machine did not stop us from going through. But when we checked the schedule on the digital board, there wasn't our train. We couldn't find it anywhere. We asked one of the JR employees about the missing train and finally we realized that we got the wrong time tickets. JR guy was kind enough to guide us how to reissue the tickets. We couldn't get the 7:03PM train but got 7:20PM train instead.

After the little trouble switching tickets, we got on the platform waiting for the RIGHT train. We bought lunch boxes and two bottles of Japanese tea, and of course a couple of snacks as well.

Tokyo to Kyoto is just about two hour trip. On the way, I read the chronicle of narnia; The prince caspian. I saw the movie and actually bought the dvd. I like the story very much. It was a story about narnians 100years after the first story which we saw in the movie.

When we got Kyoto station, we first checked in the hotel which is located at just right across the street from the station. We put all the bags in the room and got outside looking for some decent restaurant or maybe bar. A couple of blocks walk got me the impression of the city that most of the restaurants close very early. We were so tired wandering around that we decided to go back to the hotel room with some alchohol drinks and snacks bought at the nearby store.

We had a little fun drinking and went to bed for the next day.
