Kyoto hotel: ancient 70s chic

Monday, November 17, 2008 - 04:44 PM

We're in Kyoto tonight after a wonderful interview with Pico Iyer in nearby Nara. (More on that to come.) In our 12 hours here, we got great tape, saw beautiful night-lit temples, and ate delicious sushi at a genuine local joint. Our accommodations, however, leave something to be desired. Having been spoiled by our sleek business hotel in Tokyo, we were horrified to discover this place only offers low-speed modems for rent. Modems! Remember those? So our more substantial blog posting will have to wait till tomorrow. Meanwhile, we'll have to admire the transistor-radio-cum-nightstands, argyle carpets and white faux-leather couches.

that living room/couch reminds me of some groovy spy-vs-spy spoof, like the kind of place Modesty Blaise would wake up in!
