After our visit to Tokyo and Hakone, we continued south to Kyoto. Many people who have spent time in Japan have remarked at how much they thought I would love Kyoto. I was so excited to check it out for myself!
Hi friends! How are you? Can you believe that it is mid-July already? The summer goes way too fast. I’m holding on to every single day and really trying to savor all the goodness of summer (like cherries, blueberries, ice cream… you know, the important stuff).
After spending a few days in Tokyo, we hopped on the Shinkasen and headed south to Hakone. Many people opt to take a day trip from Tokyo to Hakone as you can easily catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji and then head back to the big city. We decided to make a stop on on our way down to Kyoto, and spent the night at the Hyatt Regency Hakone Resort & Spa.
