Checked out of my Airbnb in Ebisu (thank you, Hiro!) to hop on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto. The ride was nice, hard to believe I was going 200 mph when I totally fell asleep for half the trip. My favorite place in Kyoto was Fushimi Inari Taisha where I hiked through hundreds (thousands, even?) of gates to get to the top of the mountain. Okay, maybe not the top, but at some point halfway I ate soft serve ice cream and took in the view.
