After a longish pause I am returning to our pictures from previous trip to Japan.
On March 10th was out last day in Kyoto and we decided to check out the Kyoto Tower that we have seen so many times from outside.
Since we were staying in Kyoto Tower Hotel, they gave us free tickets to go to the tower itself.
The observational deck is at the elevation of 100m (330ft) and you can see most of Kyoto from it. Due to city regulations Kyoto Tower remains to be the tallest structure of Kyoto.
The pictures below were made by moving counterclockwise on the observation deck.
And this was the full circle.
After visiting the tower we checked out from our hotel and moved to Osaka for a few more days. (In fact we only stopped in Kyoto for the Dolpa)
And this is our hotel (with a strange chapel on the side) - Osaka Monterey hotel. Inside was unexpectedly luxurious and big for the price. Big bed, big bath. Sadly we forgot to take any pictures. But we definitely recommend this place. It's also close to the Osaka and Umeda stations.
And this concludes the day and also our trip to Japan.
The returning trip we actually made from Osaka airport (for the first time).
And after two hours of wait we were on our way to Los Angeles for the closing of the VOLKS store event there.
And this concluded this part of the trip.
