We had a great four days in Kyoto and Osaka. I’m not going to get too into writing about it right now. More later.. but these photos are from our first night in Kyoto. we stayed at a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn).
We slept on the floor on futons and enjoyed an incredible multi course trad Japanese meal. These places ave a rep for being very uptight and formal, but we found a family friendly one. they even ordered the kids a pizza rather than insisting on charging us $100/per for them to not eat this great spread. The meal was one little course after another, all delicate and delicious and served in beautiful pottery.
