I like Japan in April, how about you?
You know what they say: Frequent Flyer Miles - use them or lose them. So I used them.
I have wanted to go to Japan forever and a day, or at least the last few years. I'm not sure why, but I think I am EU-sed up with Britain, France, Holland, and the rest of the motherland. Call it ill will left over from the pre-Iraq lindy hop that was promised to be a waltz. Not that Japan has been our greatest supporter of late, but they certainly haven't made it their raison d'etre to lie, obfuscate and otherwise steamroll over us in the WoT. Besides, it's unique, it's novel, and I want to see Mount Fuji from the shrines at Hanoke. Who knows, maybe I'll meet someone on the plane, too!
Any Edo-philes with tips on accomodations, restaurants and "must sees" are encouraged to pass on the 411.
