September 30, 2006 – A journey to Kanto region, Japan in Asia


Just Can't Get Enough

No, Rick just can't get enough of Japan - which is great - I'm all for the incredible culture, awesome scenery, and not to mention the excellent cuisine!

Since we've allocated about five days, we traveled mostly near and around Tokyo in the Kanto region. Some photos:

Tokyo - big city composed of many unique neighborhoods


foot traffic in Shibuya


an autumn festival parade around the parks in Shibuya


an intricately carved lantern and a view of the inside of the entrance to Meiji Jingu


a guy taking a photograph of a clown in Yoyogi Park


Elvis impersonators in Yoyogi Park


sitting on the steps of the entrance to Sensoji Temple in old Tokyo area, Asakusa


Hakone - hot springs relaxation area with a great view of Mt. Fuji


serene view of a river, bridge, and mountains


refreshing green tea and manju pastry (look how cute it is - shaped like a temple!)


delicious multi-course dinner at a Hakone hot springs ryokan


Kamakura - preserved ancient town by the sea


the Great Buddha


ocean and beach (looks similar to California beaches)


tasty local specialties - red bean and wheat mochi desserts


Gombei!
