6 a.m. It is still dark. I got hangover and my brain was still sleeping.

Took the first bullet train to Kyoto.

I wanted to go around by bike but the rental bike store opens at 9 a.m.

Bus riding to a bakery.

And took taxi to Tofukuji temple, before it gets crowded.

It was already crowded and all trails were filled with tourists.

Coming back to Kyoto station and hired a bike at the store.
I wish I would hire at earlier time.

Coming to Fushimi-inari shrine.
I passed by Tofukuji temple on the way. I wish I could make it together.
It was really crowded.

Running along Kamogawa river to a Sushi restaurant.
The streets were crowded and I could not run fast.

The restaurant was full and I had to wait for 10 minutes.

Steamed sushi.

Very tasty.

Crossing Kyoto city from East to West.

Nijo-jo castle on the way.

Arriving at Koryuji temple.

I came here for returning these charms.

I don't remember how to get these.

Returning to East.

Nijo-jo castle again.

Nijo (second avenue) is wide and easy to run.

Stopping by a bakery.

This store had a branch in Shinjuku, but it was closed.

Then I went to the bakery that I visited in the morning,
to pick up sandwiches ordered in the morning.

Stopping by Nishi-Honganji temple on the way back.

Beautiful Ginkgo tree.

And visited Higashi-Honganji temple as well.

* Nishi = West, Higashi = East

Returned the bike.

Good to hop sightseeing spots.
I will come again and visit different places.
