Japan, Ho!


After Tuesday, after being on the train that was behind the train the derailed on the blue line, after inhaling black smoke and walking for an hour and a half home, I'm setting my sights forward: in August, I'll be spending three weeks in Japan.

Two of the weeks will be spent staying with a friend in Nagahama, which is near Osaka and Kyoto. It's known for being the home of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's first castle that he built. (You know, the guy who built a castle in a day in Samurai Warriors?)

The third week will be spent in Tokyo. I've reserved a room in a ryokan in Asakusa that is just a few blocks away from the Kaminarimon Gate.

I cannot wait.

I'm going to try, but I'm not sure how much time or what kind of access I'll have. But it'll probably the only thing I'll be able to write about when I get back. :)

I was thinking of trying to get someone to guest blog so that it won't be quiet here...

Aaah, too bad you won't be anywhere near Okazaki or Hiroshima! I live in Okazaki, but the first week of August it looks like a classmate and I will be taking a trip out to Hiroshima... :/

Ohh, it is too bad. :( I would have loved to have crossed paths with you in Japan!
