Travel: Japan – various pics

 Japan – one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the world.

 

I had the pleasure to see it, not once but twice and while not wanting to write a whole book of all my experiences (which I could easily do) I thought I would share some various snapshots taken over 2006 and 2007. Enjoy!

So there you have it. Just a very small sample of my trips to Japan. I literally took thousands of photos. I may do individual blogs on Disney or shopping in Japan in the future. For now, I hope you enjoyed this brief look at Japan!

    Awesome pics! Definitely couldn’t be colour blind in Japan- it’s so visually confronting but stimulating and awesome at the same time!
