Outside and Starkers for the First Time

We missed our Bangkok connection in Tokyo because of a 7 hour delay in San Francisco, which left us with a 18 hour layover to find some trouble to get into. We found a little Ryokan to stay for the night, experienced the earth shake for a minute with a 7.4 quake and went to sleep.

We are grateful to be out, but will continue to have... Read More

First off, there are Japanese tourists everywhere. We are certainly in the minority as foreign tourists. We found Tsudaro. A tiny little place that has one set meal only for 3,200 yen... Read More
