We got back last Saturday from our trip to Kyoto/Osaka, and man did I take A LOT of pictures! It was a wonderful getaway that gave us a taste of old Japan. I decided when I booked this trip back in March (mostly outta necessity), to rent a house for part of this trip. It was going to be expensive, but so were all of the hotels I was looking at, the few that weren't already booked up, that is. I'm not sure why travel in Japan is so expensive, but it is! Anyway, we were excited to stay in a traditional Japanese machiya. These are the wooden two story structures, no inside doors, sliding screens, futons on the floor, the whole bit, the whole experience. We traveled by bullet train and arrived in Kyoto about 2 pm.
I was amazed at how quickly we were able to find the house we were staying at. Once we found our bus and our bus stop, the house was a five minute walk away.

I think this may be the last year my oldest is dressing up for Halloween, sad! If this is the last year she went out with a bang! She was the Queen of Hearts and she did such an awesome job on her costume!! All by herself!
