The tranquility of Japan in Kyoto

We enter religious tranquility with Kyoto where the main temples of Japan are. In my case, after being in Tokyo for four days, reaching Kyoto gave me the feeling of what we would say is a quiet provincial capital. Even after being the second biggest city of Japan along with Osaka, Tokyo is hustle, dynamism and mass conglomerate belongs to another galaxy.

If in Tokyo, the best public transport system is the metro. What is striking is the Kyoto buses which you enter through the back door without paying and exiting at the driver’s door and then pay. The reason for this is that there are different payment areas because at the end, full payment is made. The Kyoto train station which is also the bus station is completely avant garde, it is perhaps not very innovative in a city entirely marked by the past.

The city has about 1.700 temples, therefore, a sieve is necessary and stick with the best. Furthermore, considering that the temples are open between 8:00 and 17:00 you need to have planned your day well to take good advantage of it.
