During our trip to Japan, my family and I took the exceedingly efficient train from Tokyo up to Kyoto, and spent a couple of days exploring the city. Kyoto was much quieter, with a more traditional Japanese culture than the modern, tech-y Tokyo.
Samurai lessons and visiting the Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion) were among the highlights, but we also just loved experiencing this beautiful and special town.
The amazingly beautiful and serene hotel entrance

Loved these traditional Japanese woodblock prints

I couldn't resist sharing the heart-shaped toppers on the Kyoto taxi cabs!
