Back to Kyoto.
During the trip, we have been staying in youth hostels. Nice, small, and clean. We were surprised when we arrived at Kyoto’s Youth Hostel: the Kyoto Utano Youth Hostel.
It is large. Modern. Immersed in a park. It has essential architecture, straight lines that intersect perpendicularly. We stay in a very comfortable Japanese room with a nice tatami and futon that we need to unfurl for the night.
In the common kitchen, the travellers prepare their dinner and eat together while chatting about the places they have visited.
I have always loved staying in youth hostels.
