The Return!!

Gee, it's been a while, but it feels good to step foot into Japan once more. I got in from my 17 hour flight, but then I needed to drive another 5 hours to get to my residence! The food here is delicious, and I'm not even one for seafood. This is probably the last time I'll visit, so I'm going to need to make it a memorable one. I may revisit the places I've visited before, or I may visit completely new places. Japan is a place where you could wander aimlessly for days and still be entertained by its vast culture. I'm staying in a small fishing village on Shikoku for now. The fishermen are all so gracious and kind. It's a big change from Canada. Everyone in Canada is so suburban, and wrapped up in their own work and lives, meanwhile everyone in this small village in Shikoku knows each other.We eat sushi and sashimi daily. It's cool to think that there are hundreds of villages like this in all of Japan. It all makes me extremely excited to revisit the rest of Japan. I remember fondly my stomach dropping at the steep start of the Jet Coaster at the Uminonakamichi. Tears are sprouting in my eyes as I'm writing this, yes I know it was only two years ago, and yes I know I'm just about to revisit it, I just love this place so much, and I've missed it. Veraj might be hopping along with us midway through the trip as well, after we travel through Shikoku and Kyushu. Stay tuned!
