And one thing I gotta keep in mind next time I schedule a trip is that 8am is rush hour. Avoiding that breeding ground of stress is another perk of my job. But I know my way around decently enough to avoid the most packed lines and even sit down plus I'm getting into Kyoto before 10am and that's awesome.
I'm going to do my best to see the positive on this trip. If sadness sinks in, let it sink in, but overall, just going to let things go.
