Greetings from Kyoto!

Didn`t get a chance to post before I left Oz but am curently in my ryokan in Kyoto. Been here 2 days and am finally getting used to the cold. Arrived Sat night in Osaka then went to USJ with Fi and her group. Had cierra_james join us last night and we`re now in Kyoto. Spending our night in a pretty ryokan with tatami mats in our room. My first experience with tatami and futons tonight. It should be awesome.

Haven`t really been taking as many photos as I would like, since it`s cold and most of the time I have my hands in my pockets and I`m huddling for warmth. But I should pick up a bit now that I`m getting used to the weather. It`s also meant to be warming up in the next few days.

Heading up to Tokyo tomorrow which is a relief cuz I wont have to haul my suitcase around anymore, although I wish we had more time to sightsee in Kyoto. I really like this city. It may turn out that I like Osaka and Kyoto a tad more than Tokyo.

Gotta run, this laptop in the lobby isn`t the best and I can`t use it for long. Hopefully a post with more substance once I get to Tokyo.

Take care everyone!

ah you're in Japan~ Glad you made it there safetly :D
And yeah, it's pretty cold in Japan now huh? Hopefully you don't catch a cold or anything! And you're lucky to spend a few days in Kyoto in Osaka, i only got to spend 1 day in each D: Enjoy Tokyo and enjoy sleeping in a futon! I love the futon blanket, so fluffy~ ahaha

Its freezing and I havent even hit the snowy parts yet. D: Im afraid I wont be able to hold up under the cold. Im trying my best not to get sick cuz that would be horrible.

We only had the one day in Kyoto which was a shame, its such a pretty place, i loved it so much. Omg I love the futon blanket so much I was discussing if i could take one home. Some pretty bizarre ideas came up on how to go about that. xD

ah yeah, i checked the weather in Japan a few days ago and it's SO cold! D: But you're lucky being there since it's so hot over here! It's going to be in the 40's on saturday in sydney D:

I only had 1 day in Kyoto too, and i didn't get to go to half the places i wanted to! D: It gets dark so quickly in Japan so there was no point in going to see places when it was all dark XD ahaha you should so try and bring the blanket back home! I wanted to bring mine home too lol i wanted the whole futon! XD

Keep having fun :D

oh ewww id rather be cold here then.

i agree. most of the sights are a bit out of the central city too and requires transport so wasnt much chance of getting out there in the day.

omg im so gonna try! i have to send some stuff home (bought a crap load of manga, couldnt help it they were so cheap) so ill think about how to go about sending the blanket home xD

i will thanks <3

ahaha i so had to resist buying a whole lot of stuff!! i did end up buying a lot of magazines and cheap CD's XDDD hope you find a way to bring the blanket back! :D

Have fun on your trip!

We actually have some visiting students in my lab from Japan for the next couple months.

I hear Kyoto is really pretty.

Thank you so much! Its been a few crazy days but lots of fun. Very cold though.

Kyoto was very pretty. Shame I was only there for a day. If i get the chance Id like to explore it much more thoroughly.

Did you take a picture of it? :D :D :D :D? is it wrong that I want to buy a costume of it?

Wear heaps of warm clothes and drink lots of hot canned coffee. <3 you don't want to catch a cold, have you met up with Nessa? Totally different to home then, we have random warm weather but the wind is cold. Yay, at least someone is eating my share \:D/
