After touring through Hokkaido and Kansai I will move on to Japans third-largest island Kyushu in the south of the main island Honshu. Apart from visiting urban Fukuoka and Nagasaki I will relax in a hot spring resort and explore two volcanos! In six days I will make a round trip across and around the island and will stop by in various places.
The flights are booked, the Japan Rail Pass is ordered and some of the accommodations are booked. My trip will begin on Sunday, 24th August and I will return on 14th September, a Sunday again. In these three weeks I will travel, see, meet and eat a lot. Let me go in much more detail now. But first, this is the route I will take. Spontaneous changes included.
Letzte Woche besuchte ich die Japan Expo, die grösste Japanmesse Europas. Ich war letztes Jahr bereits dort und auch diesmal habe ich mich bestens amüsiert. Zum Jubiläum wurde die Veranstaltung auf fünf Tage verlängert, so dass ich eine ganze Woche in Paris war.
Recently I read about the opening of an exhibition about Makoto Shinkai, my favourite Japanese director. Since I am a great fan of his profound and scenic animation films I want to visit the exhibit in Mishima on my way back from Kyushu to Tokyo.
