          We stayed in the b Kobe for one night and stayed in twin and single rooms. The hotel rooms are sized similar to most budget hotels in Japan - not the most spacious but sufficient for a night's sleep. For the price we paid, we found the hotel to be of great value. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel was located in the center of town (within walking distance to all the shopping streets and the harbor front). The only slight setbacks were that there was no wifi in the rooms (it was however offered complimentary in the lobby along with freshly brewed coffee) and the bathrooms appeared a little dated. I would stay there again.

          ... did not have English, and I tried using my Google Translate to try to understand what it was saying.

          After the 3 museums, we took the city tram to the harbour. It was like the last tram, so we actually walked from Chinatown to the Harbour. When we watched the earthquake video, it started pouring. The night view with the 5-star hotel, Kyoto Tower was nice. We headed back to Osaka for dinner.

          Ippudo was awful. The pork was 90% fat.

We have experienced dizzying chaos inside of one of them: Yodobashi Camera Umeda, a giant electronics retailer. We checked out cameras, lenses, watches, models of giant fighting robots from a variety of anime and got out exhausted. I doubt that any electronics store in Canada can ...

          ... I hope to commute to accomplish this.

          This was a very good trip. We visited interesting places with different cultures and met people from several countries and many different cities. We saw and learned many new things. We ate well. We were entertained. We were coddled. We saw how others live. We tried to see why they act as they do. We attempted to see ourselves as others see us-usually a humbling and useful experience. Already thinking about the next trip.

He did some stretches and balanced himself with one hand on a shaky table, all while still telling us he was warming up. Once his actual show started, a Japanese woman who was with an English speaking man, translated some of what he was saying, which was to cheer him on. His first trick was suppose to be balancing on a rolling pipe but that ...
