Kyoto, second day in Japan.
Kyoto. We arrived early in the morming. We went to the hostel where we had the reservation for 3 nights (12.000¥ for japanese typical room for 2 people, probably the cheapest place on Kyoto). it’s a nice place with great japanese family. The hostel is far away from the center but with a good bus connections.
We went to Ninjo Castel, Kyoto Imperial Park and the Gion. Ninjo Castel and Kyoto Imperial Park are two obligatory places to visit. Gion is a neibourhood to visit at night. Gion is turistic place where at night you can see Geishas on the streets and full night ‘clubs’. We saw a lot of japanese executive with nice dresses, for this reason it’s easily to understand that is a very expensive place.
Recomendations in Kyoto:
1- Save money for breakfast. Go to the univeristy bars. Cheap, good and nice atmosphere
2- Bus day ticket. The best way to move for the city. Easy and cheap, 500¥ one day bus ticket
3- Try to be lost by the city to find typical japanese restaurants to eat
