We met with a local family in their home before leaving Kanazawa…we met a fantastic man and his wife. He was part of a big family that makes and sells Sake in Japan. Wonderful experience.
We then took the train to Kyoto. Gorgeous ride along the lake and mountains. Great time to catch up on some reading along the way.

The shopping street at night is also crazy! Definitely not to be missed.
More will be coming tomorrow after touring around the city today.

We spent a few days exploring Kyoto, so here are some of my other postings:
