Spent a few days down in Kyoto with Isaac who’s visiting from Singapore. We had a great time eating and seeing the sites. We were saddened that the palace was not available as it was booked until the next day (at which time we had to be on a train). We stayed right near the main station so travel was quite convenient. I should have brought a jacket. On the way I got to meet Isaacs’ relatives who were really great – a truly incredible family. Have a stop by the Ramen “Museum” if you’re around Yokohama. Like all museums having anything to do with food in Japan it’s a stylized building of small restaurants so don’t expect a museum museum. Still, if there is a kind of ramen you’re looking for, you’ll likely find it here.
