24: Tokyo at night, and hand-washing area in front of Meijin

36: Shinto Buddhist Temple in Tokyo

39: Priests fill the drawers with horoscopes, and the cans tell you which drawer to open | Large market next to the temple compound

44: The Japanese museum. You can see how enormous it is! Also, two Americans I met

45: The national sumo championships! A back alley in Tokyo

47: Me posing with a class of school children. This might have something to do with my guide telling people I was with the sumo tournament...

50: Breathtaking views from atop Mt. Fuji. Relax, I didn't climb it there was a bus to the top | Breathtaking view of me. No no, take you're time, get a good look.

51: The ferry to Hakone, a beautiful city on a lake on top of a mountain.

53: Beautiful Hakone. The four days I spent here were the best of the trip

72: Last day in Tokyo before heading to Kamakura, my last stop. Love the Japanese picture warnings!
