... gardens. Our time was almost up and we started to head back to the Shinkansen station when a bakery sign caught my eye, we needed some food to take with us on the train for lunch. We went around the side, then around the back and found the little secret door. Mmmm, they had some yummy stuff. I got a cream cheese and yuzu bagel and Scott got a fig and chocolate one.

I found it the last time I was in Japan. Hanako noticed a sign that said "Kofun Road". A "Kofun" is a burial mound, and I've only ever been to one in Japan. We didn't go, but instead put it on the list for next time. The little temple we visited looked deserted and I imagined myself owning ...

Mt. Shosha-Engyoji"The Last Samurai"

Mt. Shosha-Engyoji makes for a stunning detour should you visit Himeji Castle (a World Heritage site), and it’s also the perfect place to practice zazen. There you can experience 'zazen’ – the practice of seated meditation where you cleanse ...
