My final few days in Japan. All good things…


My apologies for the sporadic posting of late – I’ve had my hands full planning my first trip back to Japan in 5 years! As some of you might know, I actually spent several years living there as a teacher, so this is also something of a (second-)homecoming. As this will be my first time travelling there as a non-resident, however, I can finally take advantage of the Japan Rail Pass, which provides unlimited train travel across the entire country!

This also means that I can visit the southern islands of Kyushu and Shikoku for the first time, before I start travelling far (far) northwards again, back to my former home of Akita. I’m not planning on bringing a computer so (barring the one blog entry I still have scheduled) I won’t be able to post while I’m out there, but I’m sure I’ll have plenty of images to share once I get back. I’ll also be posting my day-to-day photos over on Instagram while I’m away, so please feel free to join me there if you’re interested in my following my travels. See you all in a month!
