      Video of a Full Day Being a Tourist in Kyoto
      Fast-Forwarded to 2.5 Minutes

      This video was put together three years ago after I visited Japan for the first time in 2013. I had always intended to do a segment on my blog called ‘A Day In…‘ where I run around town doing touristy things with a GoPro strapped to my head. It’s actually kind-of humiliating and makes me into some sort of weird spectacle to the locals… Hilarious I know!

      I ended up filming these in almost every country I went to and I’ve been lugging around the mountains of footage ever since. They look easy to edit but they just take so much time and so I have only made a couple.

      However, if you guys like them I will endeavour to make more! My intention with this series is to transport you to a place you’ve never been before, so you can learn how to get around on public transport, what you can do at a destination and the overall vibe of the place before you even get there.

      So without further ado, here is A Day in Kyoto:
