Kyoto, Japan

I am visiting Japan once again. I have already been to Tokyo on this trip and shall be returning in a few days, but we have travelled east to the city of Kyoto which was the capital for many years. The city is full of history as during the war it was not bombed as it was known to be a city of historical significance and was not a military target.

In the picture you can see the Kyoto tower which one of the best visual landmarks in the city and a great way to see the city. It also looks awesome at night. 🙂

We travelled to the city by the bullet train which is awesome despite its age. I can’t believe it first opened in 1964. You can travel at 200mph!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my second trip to Japan and I am looking forward to all the other sights we are going to see in Japan before we leave. I also hope to go shopping for some interesting gadgets and toys before we leave.


I had a very good Christmas. We had all Craig and Teresa’s family with us for Christmas. Teresa cooked the meal with the assistance of Craig’s Dad. It was very good.

I got the coolest gift, a video camera which can be attached to anything, a bit like the cameras they use for sporting events, so we are going to experiment with what I can do with it. I am keen to try out putting it on a train or a radio controlled car.

Teresa got a very nice Digital SLR camera so I am hoping she will take some good pictures of me because I am starting to look very old now.
