Japan – Here We Come

Tokyo;  Then Off To Kyoto

Mt Fuji

Mt Fuji From The Bullet Train

Hi everyone,  Just to let you know we leave tomorrow for Japan.  Only a short overseas trip this year of 17 days.  We are back home on November 8, 2012.

The Ginza By Night

We have been very lucky to find a nice new apartment in Tokyo right on the edge of the Ginza, one of the main entertainment and shopping precincts in Tokyo.  Once we are in and settled we will send a report on what it is like to live in the middle of Tokyo.


We spend a week in Tokyo then travel to Kyoto by the Shinkansen (Bullet Train),a trip that take about 2 1/4 hours.  We spend 5 days in Kyoto.  Once again we have been fortunate to find an apartment in the Gion area of Kyoto which hopefully should be close to everything and ideal for sightseeing.

Time permitting we will try and send a few reports on our adventures and the highlights of our trip.
