An easy morning allowing everyone to rest and become familiar with our hotel which will be our base for the next five days. A great lesson in Japanese officiousness this morning when we had to exchange our JR Rail tickets for our individual rail passports. Sight seeing using the crowded buses was a challenge for some, a big introduction to the concept of personal space! Saw two UNSCO Wolrd Heritage listed sites, the beautiful Kinkaku Ji (Golden Pavillion Temple) and then climbed the gentle hill up to Kiyomizu Dera. Dinner at the many restaurants around Kyoto station saw the team learn the art of compromise as we collectively decided where to eat dinner.
