TJ woke up the next morning with a surprise – a weather card and a packet of yuzu candy!
TJ was staying in Arashiyama, a very green neighborhood in Kyoto. He went down to the local tram station to catch a ride downtown.
It was a much sunnier day as TJ walked along the canals.
He found an interesting shop…
…with an interesting host!
TJ did some shopping for gifts for friends.
From there TJ went to visit a gigantic forest of bamboo!
There was bamboo as tall and as far as the eye could see.
On his way to dinner, TJ even found some familiar faces to pose with…
Before long TJ was seated at the table…
…and settling in for dinner.
The next morning, TJ woke up and got ready to head home.
The bullet train was waiting to take TJ to the airport in Osaka.
Looking out the window, TJ thought about everything he had seen and was a little sad to be leaving so soon…
…but as the train took off like a rocket, he was reminded just how excited he is to always be going somewhere new!
Sayonara and arigato gozimasu, Japan! TJ hopes to see you again soon!
