The flight was a long one over - We flew straight in from Atlanta to Tokyo and then took a train to Kyoto...and we spent over 24 hours awake I think. I don't really remember much that night when we arrived other than my luggage felt like it weighed a million pounds, taking a bath and passing out.
The next morning we got breakfast in the hotel and I drank a TON of coffee!! (I needed all the fuel I could get!) After breakfast we set out for adventure - our major destination was the Kiyomizu-dera temple and possibly checking out a shop I wanted to visit if we had the energy.
We walked along Gojo-dori from our hotel to the temple and saw so many interesting things along the way. It was such a beautiful and relaxing walk despite feeling tired from jet lag. Along the way we stopped at a few places to take photos and look around. Unfortunately, I don't know the names of the little places we came across but they were lovely to look at regardless.
