Japan (Sep 2012) Day 6: Kyoto (typhoon day) *Part 1*

Originally planned to go Hikone on this day, but there's a typhoon heading towards Kansai area. Therefore I decided to just hang out at Kyoto today for some shopping instead of leaving Kyoto and having the possibility of encountering train suspension.  

Later in the day, I realised that I was correct in doing so...because I would have been stranded at Hikone if I had gone ahead with my original plan since many train lines was indeed suspended in the afternoon until evening.

Anyway, I spent nearly the entire day at the Yodobashi camera shopping mall opposite Kyoto station.

To start off this post, here's some pics of the common areas in the guesthouse I stayed at in Kyoto (Rakuza Guesthouse)
Smoking area (i think) since I saw a guy smoking here

Naruto and Luffy sharing the same boat? Haha...

 Time for lunch. Went to the underground shopping street at Kyoto station in search for some lunch.

Ended up at this restaurant for lunch

Look at the yummy egg! It's crispy on the outside and soft and runny on the inside! Yum!

  1. hi. I have been reading most of your Japan posts in preparation for my trip this may 2014. I am wondering which website did you use to check for typhoon, earthquake or worst case (tsunami alert)? As this is my first free and easy trip to Japan and i am not well-versed in their language, I hope to have some emergency preparedness since I would not be able to understand them.
