Japan 2018

San Dan Kyo

Gorgeous isolation at the San Dan Kyo Gorge

Japan has great cities, temples and gardens, but what about raw nature? The perfect answer to that is spending half a day at the San Dan Kyo Gorge.

Sadness and beauty at Hiroshima

We travel for the pleasure of sightseeing, food tasting and sometimes socialising, but revisiting history's darkest moments is sometimes mandatory. Hiroshima hits hard and you have to take it on the chin.

Eccentric urban style in Osaka

Alright. The Kyoto open-air museum was okay, but not necessarily my favourite destination. Osaka provided a most welcome change for a couple of days.

Temples, delicious food and a capsule hotel in Kyoto

Kyoto was awaiting for me on June 10 for a five-night visit in the former imperial capital of Japan. How did it go?

Geek style in Tokyo and heading to Mount Fuji

Let's wrap up the Tokyo visits with absolute opposites: cute stuff and a violent sport before going to Mount Fuji to look at a spectacular mountain.
