Aug. 24th 2018 – Train to Kyoto – Kinkakuji Temple and Ryoanji Temple
We walked to the Kanazawa station about a block from our hotel to catch the Thunderbird limited express train to Kyoto.. After arrival at Kyoto, we explored the Kyoto Station and had lunch. After lunch we went by bus to Kinkakuji Temples and Ryoanji Temple, returning later to Hotel Granvia (which is part of the train station).
Kyoto Station is a massive 15 story building. It is one of the country’s largest buildings in Japan, incorporating a shopping mall, hotel, movie theater, Isetan department store, and several local government facilities.
