Now that I examine the idea in daylight as well... Yeah, it might actually be a good idea.
You know what they say: "Any excuse to party..."
Well I guess you must have worked out your Kyoto stay by now. Yes 40,000円 is a bit much, even by local standards.
Two days there should be enough, but warning, it is rather spread out. Some time about a thousand years ago, to keep meddling priests out of politics, temples were forcebly moved out of the Kyoto city area, thus most of the Kyoto places-to-see are all spread out on the outskirts of the city. I recommend going to Nara, about an hour (I guess, can't remember exactly, it's been a while), out of Kyoto on the train, and you can see everything worth seeing, in the one area, in an afternoon or morning. There is a daibutsu (big buddha) and a national museum amongst other things. Watch out for the deer, they will insist on being fed if you remain in their vicinity :)
Of course you don't want to miss the main sights in Kyoto, e.g. Kinkakuji, so may be you'll not have the time with only two days all up.
Thanks for the tips =). We found a nice, relatively cheap ryokan in the relative vicinity of Kyoto center. Back to Tokyo on Tuesday.
Back to entry
