JAPAN - new experiences from Fiona's fact-finding mission!

Cutting edge Tokyo, 'Hell's Valley' Snow Monkeys, Gassho-Zukuri farm-houses in snow-clad alpine villages, 750-year old Cedar forests, heated loo seats (yes, really!), zip fast Shinkansen bullet trains, chanting monks and Buddhist temple lodgings, Ramen Noodle street stalls, snow-topped volcanoes, 'son et lumiere' over a Japanese garden in the shadow of castle ramparts, bubbling hot springs and Saki, Ground Zero at Hiroshima and a meeting with a traditional Geisha in the secretive world of  Kyoto's private tea houses ... just some of the memories I brought back from my trip to Japan.
