As I write this, Stan and I are sitting in the airport lounge in San Jose, California awaiting our connecting flight to Tokyo, Japan! In a mere 11 hrs. / 5 min., my long-time desire to experience Asia will become a reality. How cool is that?
For Stan, this trip is a repeat performance as he has relatives in Japan and has been there many times over the years. It is my good fortune to have an experienced tour guide who is familiar with the area, understands the culture, and speaks the language. It is also comforting to know that Stan’s family is in the area and we will be in good hands if the need arises. (I don’t expect anything to go wrong, but this thought will bring comfort to my mother who is a professional worrier.)
Stan just reminded me that his most valuable contribution will be that he will make sure I don’t accidentally or unknowingly EAT anything I’m not supposed to! Ha! Ha!
Looking at the center of Japan, our travels will take us to Tokyo, Hiroshima, Osaka and Kyoto. First on the agenda – Dave Koz concert on Sunday night in Tokyo. Awesome!
Where is Kyoto? Take lots of pictures and stay in touch DAILY.
H — Japan just had a big earthquake yesterday. Are all of Stan's family okay and has that impacted any of your travel plans? Amy
Kyoto doesn't appear on the map but it's close to Osaka.
Hi Amy! Thankfully, the earthquake was not near Stan's family or the area where we are. The weather is nice and everything is going well.
