Ok where and how to start??

I miss Japan :( i'm not kidding, i really do.
After seeing all the reports from previous years and visits by TPR i was really happy to see Japan being offered in 2011. No matter what, i had to do this trip and see Japan and experience what all the fuzz was about.

Anyway, while trying to deal with missing Japan (and looking up prices etc to go back) i decided i should try to create some sort of trip report from the pictures i took during this trip. Just to keep myself busy and hopefully you entertained ;)


Arrival day

After a long travel day (not going to talk about my flight, flat tire on the plane and so on) i made it to Japan and got my first experience of efficiency when arriving at the airport. It took 20 minutes to get from the plane, pick up my bags, get through customs and immigration, have my bags shipped to the first hotel and buy a ticket to get to Tokyo Disney. 20 minutes folks!! i'm not kidding. wow :)

The reason for going to Disney was 2 fold, staying awake to prevent jetlag (as much as possible) and the parks rehab schedule.
Here's a few images from this day (did not take that many as i knew i would be back) , enjoy and feel free to comment.

So this was not just a Disney hotel, but also the monorail station. Did not even notice that when taking this picture with my sleepy head...

After arrival day there was a day of relaxing, checking out the area and getting used to Japan before starting the trip.
See this link to get an idea about that day ;)

anyway, on to official day 1 of the Southern trip.
This was a travel day (my first experience with the Shinkansen (aka bullet train)) and we also made it to Kashiikaen.
Lovely little park which was a fun way to get this trip started :)

Below are some pictures of that day, hope you enjoy them.

Great photos so far.

But what is this guy doing?
dsc_0872_0.jpg
Tai Chi perhaps? Or just a really weird walk?
