    ... challenging us! (I got 5 seconds instead of 4sec) At the end of the tour they even gave us a pen souvenir. We were dropped back off at the museum which gave us a few more minutes to see the place - like checking out the new fuel cell system where Toyota is making a car called Mirai which uses the chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to propel the car.

    ... has one of the most amazing gardens in Japan and the best thing is: it does not come up in ANY travel guide. Peace, quiet and time for reflection, without the tourist hordes. I love the place and if you want to know its name, ask me :-) Having truly arrived in another dimension I literally took a walk down memory lane.
