For my last day in Kyoto, Emma took us to a highly recommended restaurant by her mum's co-workers. Sadly I forgot what the restaurant was called, and didn't take a photo of it either (probably a bit sleepy) so I appologise for not being able to tell you which one it is, but I'm sure there are plenty more similar traditional-style restaurants around Japan :)
We each ordered a lunch set which were only around 1500円 each and suprisingly cheap for their quality, service and environment. Mum and I both ordered this beef croquette thing, and Emma ordered this sashimi one. The tempura with the sashimi set looked amazing, but I don't eat raw fish so there wasn't much point in getting it.
Just the idea of eating a piece of raw fish meat just disgusts me, so I didn't have any sashimi in Japan, some of you may think I'm stupid for not having any amazing fresh raw fish in the land-of-sushi, but that's the way I roll, call me a picky eater if you want (and I'm not a big fan of heavily flavoured dishes either)

Must say that that restaurant's food was very pleasing for my stomach, and their miso soup was the red miso soup which was described by Emma as the more expensive flavoursome type of miso soup.
We then departed at the train station and went our own ways, as Emma had to get ready for her new school term and I had to prepare for my night bus ride to Tokyo. I hope I can still catch up with her next time I go back to Japan :)
With the many night bus services that are provided around Japan, mum and I chose Willer's as it was recommeneded by my hairstylist Yoshi-san. We could've caught the shinkasen to Tokyo but that would've costed around $150 each person each way (I think), and its more sensible to travel from one city to the other at night, and wake up in the morning at your new city, and even catch a glimpse of the sunrise too.

After this post, it'll be about the places I visited in Tokyo such as Harajuku, Shibuya and Shinjuku so please wait for that.
Thanks for reading, bye~
