Bullet train to Kyoto.

October 20th, 2017

Leaving our comfortable ryoken in the morning, we traveled to the town of Toi to catch the ferry to Shimizu where we would catch the bullet train to Kyoto.  At the port, we saw this sign that reminded us of how parts of the Japanese coastline can be affected by tsunamis and also how organized the local people are to deal with them.

In comes our ferry – it’s one that carries people and vehicles.


After a quick taxi ride from the port to the station, here comes the train.

Next stop, Kyoto!!!!
