    ... layout, is impeccably groomed, and what made it stand out most was the clever usage of outside landscape to compliment the garden. At one point you can see the Wakakusayama Hill and the top of the Nandaimon Gate soaring above the garden's pond. In my meanderings I ran into a couple traveling from New York City. With so few white people around, you really start to notice them when they are there. More often than not they are not American (lots of Europeans and ...

    ... spotless, an orderly place of polite hyper-functionality. India has litter everywhere, in spite of people cleaning and sweeping on most streets; Japan is literally litter-less, in spite of the fact that it’s hard to find a trash can.

    ... we were unable to get any accommodation in either Kyoto or Nara. Yes if you are travelling either during the Cherry blossom time or the Golden week in April get set on your preparations at least 3-4 months in advance.

    As soon as we dumped our bags we rushed to grab a bite and fled to Nara, the first permanent capital of Japan, which is around 30-40 mins by train from Osaka. It is preferable to take the train that comes to Kintestsu station in Nara rather than the ...
