|Japan rail pass and train ticket, sorry not the best photo|
We only alloted 2 days to Kyoto, and given jetlag and the fact that we kept getting lost, I would definitely have changed that to 3 if it were possible. But it wasn't (we booked all our hotels in advance), so we made the best of it. Kyoto is beautiful and a definite must see in my books.

|Everywhere we went there were huge groups of students|
|We ran into these lovely ladies in the Gion District on one of the many occasions we were lost. |
Note it was 33 degrees (celcius) that day.
|And we ran into this little Kitty too|
We were only in Kyoto long enough to hit a few of the main sites, but it's a great walking city and if you find a well situated hotel, you can walk around to many sites. The temples, however you would have to get to by bus or taxi.
