It’s always a good idea to check the necessities, printed on the foldable table:

As usual, DH was engrossed in recording the speed of the train:

While the kids recharged their energy (I bet they stayed up late the night before):

My humble “lunch” (because I dislike Japanese food) . Actually I had some cookies and kit-kat too (I know, they surely blew my calori intake!)

Aina, enjoying hers:

I tell you, bullet train rides are much more comfy than flying!

We finally arrived at our destination (slightly less than 3 hours later):

I was once here in the scorching summer of 2004. This time it’s freezing, but that didn’t stop me from posing:

And Mae had a pose with the Kyoto Tower in the background (quite difficult to get the whole tower in it):

Our hotel was nearby. We checked in, and checked the view of from our hotel. Oh, it’s the Kyoto station (on the left)!
