Japan Day 10: Leaving

Our last day in Japan was spent traveling from Kyoto to Tokyo and then spending the rest of our yen in the city. After we got back from Kurama we stayed at the Hyatt Regency. It was a really posh, but we decided we still liked our Japanese hotel in Tokyo the best. I did like that it had a Japanese shower and bath done up in a modern style.

The pretty ceilings at the Hyatt Regency.

The hotel gave us a $30 voucher for their restaurants that John decided use all on French pastries from their in-house bakery, even though he had gotten sick of them several days before back in Tokyo.

I went did a quick shopping stop before we left Kyoto. I had no idea what these tissues in the dressing rooms were supposed to be used for until I went to this department store where they were finally marked.

Apparently you use them to cover your face so you don't get make-up on the clothes. I doubt I'm wearing  it correctly here.

I miss the many vending machines in Japan with their great variety of drinks. I've been trying to find this flavor of Schweppes in the States but haven't had any luck.

Waiting at Kyoto Station.

The last bullet train ride into Tokyo.

Once we arrived in Tokyo we stored our luggage in a locker at Shinjuku Station (thanks for the tip Rick!) and picked up some items we had left at our first hotel. We also visited Tokyu Hands again and purchased some gachapon for souvenirs at the Keio department store. Our flight wasn't until midnight so we got a little tired without having a home base to rest our legs. 

Overall, we loved Japan! There are so many unique and beautiful things so see, experience, and eat that we felt like we barely scratched the surface. 

For anyone interested. Here is a rough outline of our itinerary below. We didn't get to the all of the things on it which is why we'll just have to go back!
