We had hear so much about Kyoto but still we got a few surprises. The first one was how the actual city looks, it’s not only this old cozy part but like a regular grey city, but the old part sure made up for that. The second part was when we arrived at the hotel, they bumped us up and we recieved what I can only imagine being the biggest room in the entire country and the biggest bed I’ve ever slept in, it was huge.
The old part of Kyoto was magical with its small alleys and surronding parks and temples. Walking around in these parts we easily racked up the steps on our pedometers.
One of the popular sights in Kyoto is the Bamboo forest which invites us for a nice stroll, the best part however was finding our way up to a small safe haven for monkies. There they could happily play around, often on the expense of the fishes in one of the ponds that the monkies enjoyed teasing.
Besides monkies, the eating sure was up to par in Kyoto, but most importantly the drinking. We found a bar that did not only have a great selection of spirits but knew how to mix them as well, needless to say we had a few good nights in Kyoto.
