I had promised myself a few years ago to explore at least one new country every year. This year is Japan, or least a small chunk of Japan. We’re leaving tomorrow!

Japan’s stereotypes have always fascinated me. Samurais, geishas, mangas, Miyazaki and studio Ghibli, Utzumaki Naruto, cherry blossom trees , hot water springs, etc. This list of stereotypes will be, i’m sure, enriched with many more  subtle images, stories, colours, smells and flavours over the next couple of weeks.

I cannot wait to go explore what promises to be this richest of culture!

See you on the other side
