Kyoto – Nijo Castle

After four nights in Osaka we moved to Kyoto which is only about an hour away on the local trains but very different to Osaka.

Our hotel here, the Mitsui Garden Hotel Shinmachi Bettei, also has hot spring baths but our room is more ‘Western Style’ and the hotel is not quite as kid friendly – although it’s very nice.



On our first day here we walked from the hotel to Nijo Castle, photo’s were not allowed inside but it was very impressive, built in 1679 it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
