I can't believe I am actually here, the city I have always wanted to visit, in the poshest hotel I have ever stayed in.
We arrived last night by bullet train after visiting Mt Fuji & only had time to walk a bit around Shinagawa station before collapsing into bed but today we are off for 6 hours of sightseeing and then SHOPPING!!!!!
2 more nights here & then I have to go home - cry! I know I will immediately start planning return to this beautiful country.
Meanwhile some photos (check out the AMAZING Phoenix Hall in Uji City and the Golden Pavillion in Kyoto - in the last few days I have seen some of the most beautiful things in my LIFE!)
