Good Morning, Kyoto!

Good Morning, everyone!

We made it in one piece - that's all I can say.

12+ hours of flight time and long customs lines and a 1 1/2 hour drive from Osaka to Kyoto finally rolling into our hotel about 9pm.

Straight to bed.  Nothing explored yet - but soon, very soon!

I'm typing this quickly so I can meet up with folks for an early morning walk - the photo you see here was taken a few minutes ago from my 12th floor window!

 Boarding with my buddies Jill & Sue in LA - Jill's hubby Bob is the one Lone Rooster on this trip and we are so happy to have him with us!

I had a row to myself?  All the way to Osaka?  That NEVER happens!  And I must say that Japan Airlines did it right - the bathrooms on the plane were twice the size of "normal" airline bathrooms.  That made the experience so much less of a hassle.

It was sunset as we approached our destination.  I couldn't see much because my seat was right over the wing - but hey, for a row by myself I'll take it!

Tired and weary, our group waits to board our bus for Kyoto!  There are several who we also meet up with today - they came in from different locations and some arrived early to get a bit more exploring in.

This is honestly all I've seen so far - but after a good night's sleep I am ready to see what today will bring!

Quiltville Quote of the Day!

I know it's a pretty much uneventful post, but just wait until I share what we get up to today - this is just a prequel to the main event!

Much love from Kyoto -

  8. Hi Bonnie,
    Kyoto is a lovely city, you will enjoy it. If you get a chance check out the great fabric/craft shop lower floor oftof the e Kyoto tower.
    I’m sure you will fine the Tokyo quilt festival to be like nothing you have experienced before, not being able to read the labels on the merchandise makes life interesting and the work on some of the Japanese quilts just out of this world. It is a wonderful country to travel in, enjoy

  9. Hope you have a wonderful time! There's even patchwork escorting you down to the plane - on the wall in the Rooster pic!!

  10. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kyoto. Explore as much as you possibly can, and constantly be surprised!

  11. So nice to know you all arrived safely, enjoy a well earned rest . We all are as excited as you to see your adventures.
    Love and quilty hugs

  12. I am wondering if I am going to find you in Tokyo. I have not decided yet, but I am thinking of making it to Tokyo Dome on Monday or Tuesday. Just wanted to let you know number of people going to hospitals/clinics, finding they have caught flu are going up very fast here in Japan.

  13. With all that you have been through, you still keep us updated. You are so kind and a very special person!

  14. Thanks for taking us along on this wonderful journey!!

  15. So happy you are safely in Japan. Have fun and don’t worry about posting while you’re there just enjoy!!!!
