After we finally made it to the hostel, we went out to dinner. We ended up at a place where I could only understand about 10% of the menu, but we managed to get some tasty food! We got a "corokke", which is apparently some kind of potato thing, and rice and tea. At least the waitress understood my Japanese even if I couldn`t read the menu.
This keyboard is nearly impossible to type efficiently on because of the strange locations of some characters, and we`re paying for 15 minutes, so that`s about it for today. Tomorrow we`ll explore Kyoto!
