Welcome to day 2 in the charming old capital of Japan.
The day started queuing with school kids for a local bus ride to Kyoto University.
Kyoto streets in the morning.
Kyoto University – one of the oldest in Japan.
Serene student dormitories with bicycle parking.
Must be a pleasure to hop on one of these after a class.
I have never seen stone parking in my life. Very unusual.
Sunset in town.
Taking a local bus back in the evening. All the stations are announced in the screen. There are coin changing machines in front of each bus.
Full of people!
There are several types of trains in Kyoto: subway, urban (slow), inter-city (express).
Taking a train ride to Arashiyama – the western outskirts of Kyoto.
There are plenty of vending machines almost everywhere! Partially this is related to the automation trend, but there are other reasons too, like changes in the demographics and the labor market. VOX made an excellent post on Japan’s vending fashion.
Day 2 is over!
