    ... cooked on the sizzling stone brought to the table. At 2 p.m. we boarded the Thunderbird train for Kyoto. The train is similar to the Bullet Train, but the route is different. Our journey was slightly over 2 hours, through many small towns and rice paddies set against a lovely mountainous background. Nearing Kyoto, we passed Japan's largest lake, Lake Biwa, big enough that at first we thought we might be seeing the ocean. Actually Kyoto is more or less mid way between the east and ...

    Our first stop was at a beautiful mountain village and UNESCo World Heritage site called Shirakawago.

    ... the gateway to the Japanese alps. The houses and yards were delicate and Japanese, just like calendar photographs. But I was surprised at how common it is to have a private rice paddy. As we would have a side yard of lawn, frequently we saw side plots of newly planted rice. I have been told that a family will normally consume the contents of three paddies in a year. If they cultivate more than that, the excess can be ...

    ... by the hospitality he had received whilst in Japan so was considering maybe not going home just yet and volunteering around Japan for another couple of months, another one bitten by the Japan bug! I spent a couple of days doing the tourist thing around Nagano including Zenkoji temple which was more busy than usual as the temple was displaying the first Buddhist statue to be brought into Japan which only happens every 6 years, I also stumbled on a memorial service ...
