Travel, Teach, Live in Japan
In mid March my brother and I will be traveling to Kyoto, Japan, and we are thinking about staying in a "traditional" styled hotel, with flat beds(anyone know if these beds are comfortable?), seat less dining area, and other things in that nature. I guess I am just wondering if anybody had any suggestions on "must see" places that are in or around Kyoto. I'm more interested in the Temples and more traditional places around the city so any suggestions to that nature would help a lot.
Also, the girly girl in me must ask, are there any tips on Kimono shops out there that might be of some use? I am fully aware of the high prices on Kimono's, which is why I am trying to find maybe 2nd hand, or discount Kimono's that won't cost me an arm and a leg.
I would appreciate any tips or advice anyone could give me. Thanks!
