Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport with free LAN Internet and comfortable rooms, 5 restaurant, massage service and free parking(not quite useful cause traveler usual don’t rent a car in another country). You can go to the hotel directly from Kansai International Airport.

Hotel Nikko Kansai 的客房都提供免费Lan Internet和舒适的房间, 酒店设施有5间餐厅,按摩服务和免费泊车(个人觉得不太有用毕竟在公共交通方便的国家,大多数旅客都不会去租车)

¥17100(twin) a night is a bit quite expensive but if you’re arriving the airport at night(the airport’s public transport service is closed at 11:30pm, only taxi is available, but taxi is extremely expensive) Nikko Hotel is the best choice.

日本京都的超级市场 Supermarket in Kyoto, Japan

在Fresco购买东西,也是第一次进入日本的超级市场。很多种食品,蔬菜水果,饮料,泡面,sushi等等。

This is the first time for me to go to the Japan’s supermarket. Before that, I’d only been to Daimaru’s supermarket.  It’s a bungalow house. Many varieties from food, vegetables and fruits, drinks, cup noodles to sushi.
