Here's a couple of photo's I took in Japan. This place is well worth a visit, Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima. (That's my wife).
When you arrive here by ferry, youre greeted by deer that have pretty much free roam on the island. My wife and I ended up spending a few extra days
here because of its beauty.
The Golden Temple, Kyoto. Again, stunning!!!
If youre gonna go, get a Japanese Rail Pass, we paid £150 each for the pass, and it allows you unlimited rail travel on main lines. Ok not unlimited,
if I remember correctly it wasn't valid on sleeper bullet train, or on small regional railways, but that was about it.
Japanese pawn shops are amazing. You can buy top brand items at cut down prices. As its a gift giving culture people take a lot of what they are given
to pawn shops to get cash back in exchange. We bought 2 Avirex bomber jackets in Fukuoka City for £200 that had never been used (in the UK they were
selling at £400 to £500 pounds each).
Go!!!! it will amaze you. We're going to in 2014
