Lost in Kyoto
When I first arrived in Kyoto as an exchange student, I didn’t have much furniture. I went to the community centre and found an ad for a
free bookshelf. So I called the contact, Yumiko, and organised to meet her in front of one of the many temples in Kyoto, Kinkakuji. I
took a bus north to Kinkakuji on the western side of town and called Yumiko. The conversation went something like this:
‘Hi there Yumiko, I’m in front of the temple waiting for you’
‘Hi Georgie. That’s very strange. I’m in front of the temple too and I can’t see you’
‘That IS strange! We were supposed to meet at Kinkakuji, right?’
‘…… Kinkakuji?! No, no, no! I said “Ginkakuji”! Oh no! So you’re in front of Kinkakuji, huh?!’
So I pulled out my map and rustled around trying desperately to find Ginkakuji. ‘Oh no! It’s on the other side of town, on the EASTERN
SIDE!!’ I thought.
So I took a taxi across to Ginkakuji and finally met Yumiko an hour later.
Being able to listen to and understand directions is a great skill to have and can avoid a lot of mix-ups like with Yumiko and I. Can you
think of a situation where you’ve needed help getting somewhere?
