  Sakura in the Beautiful Old City of Kyoto

We took a fantastic day-long bus trip to Kyoto from Nagoya. This trip, which cost less than 10,000 yen (under $100), was well worth the time and money spent.

After finally finding our tour guide in a sea of jovial. shouting, uniformed guides at Nagoya Eki (station), we stood in line for a few minutes before following our guide to our bus for the day.

We stopped at three historic shrines in Kyoto and had a guided tour (all in Japanese) throughout the entire day. At each stop, we were given freedom to explore and a time for return to the bus.

The guide allowed us to vote as a "team" whether to stay a little bit later at the last shrine, since we'd been stuck in traffic. We actually got to spend an additional two hours enjoying the people and places of Kyoto.
