Facts about Kyoto

  • The outskirts of Kyoto look more like the outskirts of an American city than they do like the outskirts of a European city, but downtown Kyoto looks more like a European downtown than it looks like an American downtown.
  • There are a lot of soda machines in Kyoto.  Soda machines in untrafficked corners where you would never expect to find a soda machine.  You can buy little cans of cold coffee out of them.
  • Eel livers are delicious.

    I can’t stop myself from asking what YOU are doing in untrafficked corners of Kyoto? Were you just looking for a soda?

    Which outskirts of Kyoto were you in? One of the things that struck me about Japan is that I found very little which resembles American suburbia. I’m surprised you found some.

    And you can find vending machines, outside on the street, in isolated mountain villages with 50 people. It’s pretty tremendous.
