On Saturday we went out for lunch to a French restaurant on the top floor of a hotel. All the tables were on a rotating floor which I didn't like the idea of, I thought it would be like eating while being on a spinning teacup ride. But actually it moved very slowly, it took two hours to make one circuit, so you could hardly tell it was moving.

It meant that we got a 360° view of Kyoto. The best view was watching all bullet trains going past Toji Temple, a mixture of traditional and modern.

When asked which puddings we wanted we all opted for a little bit of everything!

Then downstairs in the lobby I had major christmas tree envy! Will post a picture of our tiny tree later today.
