Bamboo forest in one of the many temples of the old capital Kamakura


Me looking at Mt Fuji from the Hakone national park

Futuristic buildings at the World Expo 2005 in Aichi


Old houses in Takayama in central Honshu


Old farm houses with thatched roofs in the World Heritage Site of Shokawa valley

No sure how avid you are with the world of automobiles, but how's the car enthusiast culture in Japan?

Im travelling around on Honshu for a month, then i'll be in Kyoto for school for the summer, and plan on ending my vacation in a hammock under a coconut palm on a beach in Okinawa

Don't know about car culture, but they all seem to be driving Japanese brands, there are also quite a few european cars around - especially Volvo, Mercedes and BMW's. Haven't seen any American ones now that i think it off it - probably due to the gas prices...

They got some fucking huge Toyotas driving around that i haven't seen anywhere else. But they don't really seem to pimp their rides up much...

the trend seems to be box cars, some mid sized very cars which looks like....a box... like this




oh, and i saw this cool gadget today at the train station in Kanazawa, it's a clock where the "pixels" are made of small fountains, it also displays "welcome to kanazawa" in english and japanese...

i was gonna take a video but it was to dark

And that fountain clock is bad-ass...That must be a bitch for the city to maintain...

This weekend i went up in a beautyfull valley in the mountains of Shikoku, and visited an ongoing project to run and maintain an old farmhouse called chiiori....

It was so nice to enjoy the serenity there, after all this time living in the Kansai mayhem! if you ever go to Japan i really recomend a visit...

anyway, i uploaded a few pictures from the trip

Me drinking a beer in the afternoon

German voulenteer girl is getting the fire started

Me enjoying the peace

The chiiori house from behind

The vista from the house, thought the clouds looked really neat

When you get back I would like to hear how you managed your budget over the duration and how much things cost.
