Taking the bullet train (Shinkansen) to Kyoto for some epic karaoke with my Japanese friends. Kyoto is an ancient Japanese city known for its beautiful shrines.

The Shinkansen took only 2 hours to get to Kyoto. The Japanese bullet trains are among the fastest in the world.

Kyoto was quite an experience, we went to Purikura which is a crazy photo booth where you take pictures with all your friends and make funny faces, you can also draw on them afterwards.

I stayed at the Kyoto Dai-ni Tower Hotel in a luxurious classic Japanese suite where you sleep and eat on the floor in a traditional style.
