In 2016, March 2016

My usual, annual Japan training trip last December included some sightseeing locations. The usual Asakusa and temple as a nice one day trip. We also visited the Sky Tree Tower and went to the Star Wars exhibit there :). The Tokyo Tower we visited the year previous and didn’t make it again this last trip, but it’s definitely one to visit. Night views are amazing from both towers. Sabine and I spent 3 days in Kyoto, walking miles and miles and not seeing even 1/4 of what we would have liked to. It’s a place to go back to often, even though I have now had about 4 visits there. So much to see.

Below you can see lots of pictures with captions. But you can view the whole album of Japanese scenes here.

Enjoy!! and thanks for stopping by 🙂
