    Day 5 - May 25th.

    Today we will be travelling to Kyoto by the famed Shinkansen or Bullet Train. We got our tickets to depart Tokyo at about 11:00am so that we will missed the office rush our crowd.

    The whole journey about 500 km or 310 miles takes us about 2 hours 30 minutes because we did not take the express. The ride was really comfortable and nice view to enjoy along the way.

    Since bus is more convenient here we make use of it to go everywhere we want to and I can say the bus service is superb!

    After checking into our Airbnb place, we headed to Gion. We were lucky to see a Geisha but was unable to get a photo of her. When the Geisha alighted from her taxi to get into a restaurant, all tourist around the area suddenly turned into paparazzi.

    And for dinner we had Teppanyaki. The restaurant is kind of a cramp and it was a great experience.
