About this blog

After my first trip to Japan in Mar/11 just 10 days before the big earthquake and tsunami (visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe) this is my second in depth trip exploring the southern portion.

(Click Here for First Japan Blog in 2011)

I will be taking a ferry from the southern Korean port city of Busan during the 5 day Chuseok Holiday period to the Japanese port city of Fukuoka (Hakata).

From there I will travel to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Park and nearby Miyajima Island with the floating Todori, then return to Kyushu Island to explore Kumamoto Castle, and the Dutch Colonial Heritage and Atomic legacy in Nagasaki.

Rule of thumb for exchange rates : drop two zeros and add 25%
