Japan: Day 1: Getting there


So it's Wednesday morning 6:30 am, here and I have been awake since 5:00 due to jet lag. Today is our first day in Kyoto and I hope this wont affect my ability to enjoy the sights.  Our trip was tiring but went pretty well!

Food plane is so much more delicious when its Japanese!

 My first sight of Osaka City!

Late night Japanese snacks on top of my bunk bed! I'm sharing a room with 6 others girls!

Now I'm armed and ready to take on the beautiful city with my map of Kyoto and my Japanese phrasebook.

I will be updating the blog quite often so do expect another post of my day's visits and my outfit later in the evening!
