My vacation in Japan!

Postby BrianM » Thu 07.31.2008 10:05 pm

Hello all, haven't posted much here in a while but i just arrived from Nippon and had an amazing time.
I spent 2 weeks there and took tons of photos, http://s35.photobucket.com/albums/d186/BrianM1/
I plan on returning but not for a few years, and it has inspired me even more to learn the language!
I encourage everyone who has an interest to go and visit at least once because you will definitly find it worth your while.

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Nice photos! Glad you enjoyed your trip.

Where did you go and what did you do?

BTW Is there a reason a toilet is the first photo? :)

Chikara and Clay:
I was too tired to name them lol. First I went to Tokyo for 3 days, then Hakone, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka.

Sounds a lot like my last trip, Tokyo, Hakone, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Osaka ......

Did you go to Ōwakudani when in Hakone and eat some kuro tamago?

Where did you stay in Takayama? One of those pics looks familiar.

lol I don't know the area in Hakone but that might be it. We saw where the eggs are made in the hot springs, god it was hot there lol.

And the photo is from Kyoto near Gion area. I forgot the name but it was a traditional 旅館. It was beautiful and the service was absolutly amazing. Looking through the book of other 旅館 they had in Japan, I had an idea of doing a tour of just 旅館 around the country. I think that would be fun.
