Three Fabulous Weeks in Japan

Dear Olivia,

I came back on Monday after three fabulous weeks in Japan.  Everything went well until I caught a cold on the second last day in Tokyo which I have brought back with me.  Over the 21 days I had four days of rain which wasn’t too bad and I expected it would be wet.  However it was warm and humid which I quite like.

The itinerary was great and I had just enough time in each place.  I had no trouble with trains or schedules and took a number of local buses as well.  The accommodation was fabulous – well-located, friendly and clean.  It is hard to say what was the highlight but I did enjoy the Hotel Jirin at Zao Onsen and the ryokan at Kiso Fukushima because of the beautiful rooms and food and baths.  Also, by taking two meals a day, you get to know the staff more and can interact.

My Japanese listening, reading and speaking improved considerably but I need a lot more work on writing!

Thank you once again for making all the arrangements.  I hope to pop in next week some time if that is suitable.

Kind regards
