Walking around Narita in the early morning.

After spending our first night in Narita, we woke up early next morning to catch a series of bullet trains to Kyoto.  From the train windows, the view was gorgeous. There were houses nestled in the mountain slope, forestry devouring their sides and various small towns, some buried in rice patties, others bordering a quiet port.

Once we arrived in Kyoto, I, at once, felt the difference. Narita was a slumbering town that found its charm in the uneven rows of petite, aged houses and low murmur of everyday life. Kyoto felt like Shanghai; it even smelled like Shanghai. The train station was packed in groups of tourists, uniformed students sitting on the cold platform, and business men and women scurrying past by with their broad briefcases.

After settling in at the new hotel (where, very unfortunately wifi was MIA), we headed out to a local supermarket. Fruits and vegetables seemed pricier then I was used to but I still managed to head out the door only paying around 8 USD.
