Japan Travel

The shinkansen is the bullet train the original and very cool, it must have been so ahead of the game when it first came out.


It feels much faster than the TGV in france, after having done the high speed train in Spain I have now done all the fastest trains in the world, there is a faster nozomi class (company) shinkanssen which my 3 week ticket doesnt cover.. 

But anyway im in Kyoto and seems like I wasted half the day trying to find accomodation, since I didnt have the internet to make a booking before I arrived. Not so very bad. Will do the temples tomorrow and plan if to go on to okinawa, that will be a one nighter. Here is worth a brief stay and relax moment, im in a cool hostel with some international folk and am getting that up to date info..Have some entries saved on my laptop to insert when I get intenet on her. Have been skoping out the nightlife here this evening and it is very much not that kind of place, had a great chat with this Japanese cosmetic salesman who was with his three salesgirls in this bar / restaurant. Other than that kyoto is unknown still, might see if I awake early, think not, im hoping im over the jetlag, that might mean i dont go for my early morning run...
