Day 64, July 13: Taipei, Taiwan to Nagoya, Japan (1050 NM). Transfer via Bullet train (90 NM) to Kyoto

On our flight at 31,000 ft. we encountered some serious cloud build-ups (we were tracking between two dissipating typhoons). Diverting around build-ups is part of the “game”.

Nagoya’s main airport- (on small island) is not where we landed.

Our flight crew awaiting the Bullet train.


The Bullet Train travels at 185 miles/hour and was wonderful way to reach our tranquil zen-like hotel. The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto sits serenely on the banks of the Kamogawa River and offers expansive views of the famous Higashiyama Sanju-Roppo (36 mountain range).   Our room has a great view of the Komogawa River.

Our first authentic Japanese dinner was in the hotel’s Muziki restaurant transitioning us to Japanese cuisine.
