Kyoto day 3: Kyoto Aquarium, Railway Museum, Nishiki Market

Monday, November 13, 2017

According to the weather forecast; it's going to be rain the whole day that day so we reserve that day to visit Kyoto Aquarium. Originally, we were going to the famous Osaka Aquarium but going there would take us at least two hours while this one only 10 minutes from our hotel by foot.

 After all those snacks we walked around the area and eat dinner at the Ippudo Ramen.

The ramen broth is lighter, which I prefer than Ichiran. I love the fact that they provide a basket under the chair, where we can place our bags and jacket. How thoughtful!

So that's a wrap for that day. Don't worry we didn't gain any weight from the trip because we have to walk a lot in Japan.
