For our second day in Kyoto, we again stayed in a traditional (though more economical) living space. It has futon bedding, a low table, and a view of downtown Kyoto.
The toilet has a great water saving feature: you wash your hands with the water that will eventually fill the water tank. Amazing 🙌
Kyoto used to be Japan’s capital, and just like Tokyo, it’s filled with lots of great restaurants everywhere you look. We did some damage on this local sushi go-round.
On our exploratory walk, we happened upon a pet shop with this little thing.
Just look at him! Two months old.
After the detour, our main stop for the day was a little shopping in Nishiki Market, a long hallway of goods and treats, ranging from souvenirs to raw seafood to honey drinks to matcha cookies. Some things, we had no idea what they were; some things were so good, we wanted seconds!
Here we have some exotic seafood on a stick:
Here we have… something tasty (we presume)?
And lots of fermented goods!
