        ... no more people can go in. Not sure about the tea which was very green like spinach and which she told me came from nearby Bizen, but the ceremony and the serene view was worth every yen! She bowed so much, and so low that it was almost embarrassing.

        Checked out Okayama Castle which is next door to the gardens. Again, much of it was destroyed by bombing in 1945, but has been faithfully reconstructed. It is very impressive with multiple stories. ...

        ... well south of Takayama. So some time for reflections.

        Everything talks to you in Japan or makes a noise of some sort. The escalators, the lifts, the trains, the little machines the train cleaners push along the station, etc. They are particularly fond of a jingle. One plays just before a train departs or arrives at a train station which seems essential as so many people go to sleep on the train, it at least wakes ...

        The castle was pretty but expensive. We headed up ...

        We are now in Okayama which is part way back from Hiroshima to Osaka, so reducing our train journey back to Tokyo in two days' time.

        My parents live between Osaka Bay and the mountains so it makes for some great scenery. Their house is close to a train station but the walk to the train is 15 minutes down a very steep and narrow hill. Walking back up is the worst! But because Japan has GREAT public transportation, the pain is worth it. When I say Japan has great ...
