Your review This was my second visit to Japan in the last six months and was as enjoyable as my first visit. Japan is a fascinating country to explore. The cities are vibrant with wonderful restaurants, temples, shrines and museums. The people are very friendly and helpful, especially if you try to speak some Japanese. Ryokans and onsens are a unique experience not to be missed. The trains are fabulous being fast, smooth and always on-time.

Whilst enjoying all the places I visited, especially Tokyo and Kyoto, my stay in Kanazawa was an unexpected treat. It is a beautiful modern city with some exceptional places to visit including Kenroku-en Garden, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, D.T.Suzuki Museum, Myoryu-ji Temple, Kanazawa Phonograph Museum, Shima Geisha House and the Kutani Kosen Gama Kiln.

Whilst my younger son continues to live and work in Tokyo I will return to Japan as often as I am able. There is still much to see and do.
Would you like to visit Japan again? Yes
