After the first couple of days in Tokyo, we continue our trip through Japan in Kyoto.
Compared to Tokyo, Kyoto feels smaller, friendlier, calmer and more traditional. Here it’s common to hear the sound of the wooden sandals (geta) and see women dressed in a yukata (a simpler type of kimono) when you’re walking through the streets. I can’t imagine a trip to Japan without visiting Tokyo, but I’m enjoying Kyoto more.
