Phew. Bit tiring. First day in pics below.
The drive to Heathrow, snow!
The glorious Terminal 5, all working now
Stopping off for some breakfast at Giraffe.
Our mighty air steed!
On board the narita express, jr rail passes are very flashy indeed!
First beer of the trip ^-^
Ah finally here, room is massive! Nicest hotel i’ve ever stayed in!
Much bigger than last year!
Out for some food,took the free bus to Kyoto station and discovered the Asty Road food court – great Engrish there!
Did a bit more strolling about but ended up crashing quite early as we’re severely tired after all that travelling!
