We woke up wednesday morning at our flash but tiny room, these Japanese really know how to utilize their space! We left the hotel and made our way down a long windy road that was filled with stores selling all types of nick knacks and plenty of restaurants. And just like every other asian country I’ve been too there had to be a temple. This huge temple was filled with people all praying as part of a mass. The area itself was amazing with fish and turtle filled ponds along side pagodas with statues or giant bells, the setting was really nice but it is crazy hot and the humidity is also way up there.
After our tour of Narita we hopped on board the fast trains headed for Kyoto.
Once we arrived we had to call our accommodation so we good get into our guest house but unfortunately their phone was out of order…so after going onto the internet then finding another number I had some instructions on how to get there.
1 take taxi to taxi rank(there are no street signs or numbers in this area so we can’t tell the taxi driver exactly where)
2 walk towards temple
3 take first right
4 follow curve
5 pass the house with all the water bottles
6 house has a pole out the front
7 a blue net is also on the ground out the front
8 shout out Matsuko and she will hear you
So after 20 minutes of calling her name a guy and girl come by in a motorbike and with the limited Japanese I know they let me use the phone to call the guy back…very long story short the lady waiting fir us had left as we hadn’t called…cos the phone was broken so we had to wait another 45mins to come back…the was a huge pain in the ass but we got in and the house is amazing! Again the Japanese really know how to utilize their space.
Photos to come as I’m writing this from my iPod…going to an Internet cafe today so will hook the camera up there.
