The Land of the Rising Sun

Hello Everyone…Leaving Japan

Decent Internet access has returned now that we have left Japanese waters. We still don’t know exactly what the problem was. Anyway, leaving that aside, we lucked out again, this time missing by about 2 days the earthquakes that struck southern Japan. We have lots of photos from Japan, including shots taken in Aomori, Otaru, Fukuoka and, of course, Tokyo. Some are posted here.
