One of our primary activities in Kyoto has been eating.  Fortunately for our waistlines, Jonathan regularly makes us walk miles across town with the promise of a restaurant “just a little ahead”.  Essentially, we eat and walk and walk and eat.  Rinse and repeat.  Not a bad lifestyle.

Before we arrived, I had visions of daily sushi meals.  Perhaps the strongest testament to the variety of delectable food in Kyoto is that it took me over two weeks to have my first sushi meal!  (On the other hand, we did manage to squeeze in two Indian dinners–I take that as a testament to Jonathan’s determination.)  Below is a gallery of some of our meals, kicked off by a few offerings from a cool Whisky bar we found (on a long walk, of course)…
