Japan Stopover

On my way to Germany, I stayed five nights in Japan, doing a whirlwind tour of Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka. Apart from the blood, sweat (and almost tears) of lugging 27 kg of gear through Tokyo train stations, Japan was a really cool place. The people are amazingly friendly and generous, and the whole place has a really good nightlife. You wouldn’t have to twist my arm very hard to convince me to return.
