We are now home and fully rested after our fantastic adventure in Japan. Every day was different and our senses bombarded. It is interesting to see how the Japanese do things and to be immersed in their mono-culture but also to come back home and see our lives afresh.
We would like to thank our friends and their families for making us feel so welcome and for showing us around their home city. Hopefully it won't be another 10 years before we return again. Domo arigato gozaimashita!
