Re: our soon Japan trip

yes looking forward to it. There is a wide choice at each stop as well
For example at

Toba we picked


ISE SHRINE, SKYLINE AND MIKIMOTO PEARL ISLAND

Board your motor coach for the approximately 30 minutes drive to Ise Shrine. The Shrine dates to the mid-7th century AD, though Shinto mythology claims a far earlier date. The holiest shrine in Shinto, Ise is home to Amaterasu-Omikami, the Sun Goddess from whom the Japanese imperial family claims direct descent. Ise Shrine actually comprises an Outer and an Inner Shrine and you will visit both. Each sanctuary is surrounded by dense groves of Japanese cyprus. After the Ise Shrine, you will drive up the Ise Shima Skyline. From the observatory you can see the beautiful Ise Bay. You will have lunch at a local restaurant.The last stop after lunch will be Mikimoto Pearl Island. This island was made by Kokichi Mikimoto, a man who was called the Pearl King. In the island there are museum of himself, and pearl museum, shop and restaurant. Back to the ship.


because the trip included food, yum yum, lovely food

also going to

Kochi Castle & Katsurahama Beach

Best of Gyeong-Ju Busan South Korea

Yokkaichi Inuyama Castle & Castle Town

Re: our soon Japan trip

Sounds lovely Bazza enjoy your visit.

I was shown many photographs of the cherry blossoms by a Japenese student called Wakaho who was studying over here and I looked after for two years. I would have loved to have visited there myself.
