Gallery – Photos From Kyoto, Osaka and Nara Japan

Abby and I were able to escape from our Hagwon job in Ulsan, Korea for a week long trip to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara in Japan last week.  Although the weather was far too hot, on two different days reaching over 100f, we enjoyed our first visit to Japan.  Kyoto especially offered a ton of incredible vegan restaurants, temples, historical sights, parks and mountains to explore, but we enjoyed all three cities for various reasons.  In every city we visited one of the biggest differences we noticed was that bicycles and public transportation played a much bigger role in daily life than in either Korea or the U.S.  On every street we saw people riding, and piles of bikes parked especially around supermarkets, schools and downtown areas.  If the opportunity arises I would definitely jump at the opportunity to return.
