Traveling in Kyoto — Part2
Nov.24 -The first day
: bright and clear ,partly cloudy
My wife and I joined a tour trip which was organized by Japan Railway Co. We left home at 5:30 a.m and arrived Kyoto at 8:00 a.m. During the first day, we traveled using a chartered bus. The number of participants of the tour is 40 and most of them are older or almost same my age. The scheduled itinerary took time allowance, so we could visit two additional sightseeing spots.
The following is the actual itinerary .

:rainy in the morning/ cloudy in the afternoon
It was free day all day until 18:04 when the train for Yokohama left. I already planned the visiting places but changed the order to visit due to the morning rain. My plan was to walk and see many sightseeing spots. In order to escape the rain, we sometimes used trains and and taxis . So we could visit more places than my schedule.
