    Avec un peu de retard je vous présente le Japon. Population: plus de 127 millions d'habitants. Capitale: Tokyo: c'est. La métropole la plus densément peuplée au monde, 13 millions 220,000 habitants pour sa superficie. C'est le lieu de résidence de l'empereur et le siège du gouvernement depuis 1603 (de facto) et s'appelait alors Edo; puis depuis 1868 elle devint officiellement la capitale du Japon et prit le nom de Tokyo. Quant à Kyoto, la ville ...

    I wasn't planning to write a blog as I am only away a week, but so many people asked me if I was - so here goes!

    Well my first impressions of Japan are very favourable - organised, clean, welcoming and no more than 50 paces from the nearest vending machine should you be in need of a chilled bottle of water, can of iced green tea or some other refreshment! Cost about 90p.

On the way we passed many temples, rivers and some beautiful streets, Kyoto is truly beautiful and is fast becoming my favourite city. Finally we found a sushi train restaurant, which was lucky as it was way past ...

    ... we realize how much our Maui home is designed using traditional Japanese architectural principals.
    The décor is very simple, but elegant, with one vase, or beautiful bowl being the centerpiece of a room’s furnishings.

This will be a fun home stay!

    ... sting. Like someone driving a nail through your hand. I suppose that I am immune. Yay, I have a superpower.
    After the Silver Pavillion we had lunch at one of the most popular Ramen joints in Kyoto and had great ramen. Mine was a seasonal Ramen soup with Pike Eel and some kind of mushrooms. After lunch we set off along the Wise Mans path. A charming path between the Pavillion and a great temple. One of the oldest and most important temples even. ...
