Holiday Pics: Japan

22nd May 2012

A few photos from my amazing two weeks in Japan to keep you entertained before the food blogs. 🙂

Our modes of transport, everything is a lot cleaner and more punctual in Japan:

Shinkansen (aka The Bullet Train)
Street car
Good old fashioned regular train

And some of the things I saw:

Maiko (apprentice Geisha) in Kyoto

Origami cranes made by school children in Hirosima Memorial Peace Park
5 storied pagoda in Miyajima
Zen Buddhist temple Chisen-kaiyu-shiki (pond-stroll) garden in Arashiyama
From a distance, the Tokyo Sky Tree currently the tallest tower in the world, which opened to the public today
