Autumn Trip to Japan Part 1

IMG_2993

I just back to Taiwan from my long trip in Japan. I traveled alone in Japan about 11 days, using shinkansen to move from  city to city. For sure I bought JR pass to save transportation cost. I really love the autumn season in Japan, especially in Kyoto. Here I can share some photos I took there – but there are too many photos I want to share so I divide into two parts. Part 2 is still on going (editing), I will upload in the next article when I finished editing the photos.  There are about 340 photos in part 1, so be patient for the loading time. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Waiting my flight in Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge – it is my first time^^. The beef noodle and snacks are not bad (I mean so so :) ).

Arrived in Kansai International Airport then I transferred to Kansai Airport Express Haruka (direct to Kyoto). I bought ICOCA & Haruka to save the cost (you may check this link for more details).
