Today as Christmas approaches and it's summer in Australia, I'm reminiscing about SNOW!
Are you a fan of Manga, and are you possibly a fan of one of the main dudes when it comes to creating Manga and Anime, Mr Osamu Tezuka? Well maybe there is a museum you would like to visit in the Japanese town of Takarazuka!
Today I would like to take you to a city in the Gifu prefecture of Japan, destination – Takayama. It's known for it's festivals which feature amazing floats. but there's plenty more to like in this town!
A few days back I wrote a bit about some interesting places in Iwate, Japan that I had visited. I hadn't intended originally on including Kesenumma, but as I wrote I thought about it and included it. I thought today I would provide some reference with a couple of YouTube videos on the tsunami and Kesennuma.
Japan's Iwate Prefecture offers some really interesting and different kinds of places to visit - from hardened lava below Mount Iwate to an abandoned mining town. Today I also talk a little about the town of Kesenumma which was badly hit by the 2011 tsunami.
So I wanted to compile a reasonably comprehensive list of the places I’ve been to in Japan with a short comment/paragraph each. Japan is a great destination. And here is my guide to pretty much everything I've seen in Japan!
Japan is a country famous for its food. With so many options and different names, what exactly can you expect to eat when you are in Japan?
In Japan the convenience store is King - it's where you go for most everything. Today I discuss how it has become such a vital part of life in Japan.
So what do you need to know if headed to Japan? Today I’ll talk a little about the people, customs, language and culture, things to be aware of as a foreigner, and talk a bit about transport and accommodation options. And as always I will finish with a few recommendations on what to see and where to go in incredible Japan! Thanks for joining me!
Sunday means 'interview' here on Andy's World Journeys and this time I'm 'chatting' with friend and fellow blogger, Lynda Hogan. Lynda hails from Ireland but lives in Saitama, Japan hence my incredibly corny title for the this post (sorry Lynda!). Lynda's blog details all the things there are to do in Saitama, and as such is a great source of knowledge for anyone who's planning a trip to Japan. She's also a mum, and has that in mind in many instances when she blogs.
