42. Prologue
Ric Getter s personal memoir of a two-week trip to Japan, his wife s homeland.

April 8

Prologue A fisherman enjoys a solitary moment at a park in Ayabe, a rural corner of Kyoto prefecture. When we returned home from Japan, it was my intention to jot down some notes about the trip to help preserve the memory of the journey that I enjoyed so much. As we rode home from the airport in the dilapidated taxi, looking out at the rows of beige, soulless stucco bunkers and litter-lined highways of Silicon Valley, I realized that my heart had remained behind on the other side of the Pacific. That night, in spite of the fatigue of a twenty-two hour, dateline-crossing journey, I sat down to write. A strange thing began to happen as I did. I discovered that my writing was letting me return to Japan and relive, moment by moment, my memories of the people, the places and the experiences that had become so dear to me. Each night, for over six weeks, I returned to this journal and the notes evolved into a story and the story became a memoir and commentary on a country that I had suddenly grown to love. I found myself researching details and background information and reaching for the right words to describe a culture that offered so much to learn from. The result is a site that too large for anyone to digest in a single sitting. But it is hopefully designed in a way that can be consumed easily in a series of visits.

44. Wayward Random || Japan Trip
Details one person s first visit to Japan for two weeks in 1998. Includes a detailed journal and many photos.
On May 29 - June 13th, I took my very first trip overseas, to Japan. I went to visit friends that I met 5-7 years ago while they were exchange students at my high school. I've been dreaming about going to Japan for all those years... and I finally made it. I decided to put my journal of the trip on the web for 2 reasons. One - I wanted to share my experience with anyone out there who might be wondering what it's like to visit a foreign country. And two - I wanted to keep a detailed journal for myself.. and I knew the only way I'd do that was if I promised to post it on my web site ahead of time. That way, I had several people out there counting on me to write this thing.. not just myself. I couldn't let them down. So here it is. I hope you enjoy reading about my trip as much as I enjoyed experiencing it. I'd love any feedback, questions, or suggestions on how to make this site easier to get around, so please email me!

    49. A Short Trip To Japan By Internet Weekly
    Lynn Larrow describes her trip to Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo in detail.
    A Short Trip To Japan by Internet Weekly The Shinto shrine above is one from a picture I took through the crystal clear glass window of a Sunrise tour bus . It was not part of the tour, but its simple beauty appealed to me. In Kyoto , there are over 1600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines! For a student of Eastern Philosophy, e.g., Taoism and Zen Buddhism, Kyoto was truly a Disneyland for the Mind.
    I have always been fascinated with Japanese history and culture: art, haiku, Geishas, Akira Kurosawa , Godzilla, and Japanese Animation ( Anime ). My first exposure to Japanese Culture was through the Hollywood satire " Teahouse of the August Moon ", which I saw when I was very young with mother. I didn't realize it at the time, but the original author, Vernon J. Sneider is from my hometown of Monroe, MI , which is probably why we went to see it in the first place. Although I was not impressed with Glenn Ford, I was struck even back then by the delicate beauty of a traditional Japanese woman in kimono. When I was in college, I worked in a vegetarian restaurant where I became hooked on such Japanese delicacies as miso soup tamari Udon noodles, tempura and

    We went out to a restaurant with a bunch of Pete's co-workers, where I had a pizza and sashimi and Japanese beer. After a while I got quite tired and we headed back to Pete's place. After a long and busy day, it was great to finally get there and relax, I think it took me about 2 minutes to fall completely asleep. Day 2 – Exploring Tokyo
    The keep and moat at the imperial palace In the morning we went to "mister donut" and bombed around Tokyo where Pete finished some items for work. After all that, we went to the Imperial Palace of Tokyo and visited the Imperial Gardens. They were really nice, but I was disappointed that we didn't get explore much of the palace because it is blocked off to the general public. I found it quite interesting that there was no imposing main entrance like in European fortresses.

    Nagasaki is a surprisingly beautiful city. While it is true that the architecture is not that different from most other Japanese cities (i.e. mainly concrete and random buildings), the location of the city is fantastic. Recommend Book From Gunkanjima, July, 2008
    Discovering Gunkanjima was probably the most interesting part of our visit to Nagasaki, thus I have decided to add a separate gallery just from Gunkanjima. Hopefully one day I will be able to step foot on the island. Enjoy! Recommend Book From Okinawa, December-January, 2007/2008
    A visit to the main island of Okinawa, including sights such as Camp Zanpa, Cape Manza, Cape Hedo, Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, Himeyurui-no-to museum, Mabuni hill, Shuri-jo castle, and other famous attractions.

    Feb 20th:
    Left Stockholm vith KLM flight via Amsterdam to Osaka Kansai international airport, where we arrived the following morning.
    Feb 21st: Upon arrival at Osaka at 9.00 we were met by the local birder Koji Tagi, who swiftly put us in his car and drove north through Osaka. Started birding around lunch-time at a site near Kawanishi City looking for Solitary Snipe, which unfortunately was not at home. Birded a few sites north of Osaka, the best being a small lake at Ikejiri at Kameoka City where we saw our first Falcated Ducks. The day ended at Mount Myoken for some forest birds. Night at Ibaraki Central Hotel in Osaka. Feb 22nd: Early start for the 2.5 hours drive to Kawashima Bridge at Kiso River in order to look for the Scaly-sided Merganser that had been present for more than a week. Spent several hours searching for the bird and then learned that it had not been seen for the last three days. We saw some other good birds though, like Grey-headed Lapwing, Long-billed Plover and Chinese Bamboo-Partridge, the latter introduced though. After some scrubland birding we drove towards Nagoya and looked for Baikal Teals at Tatsuta Bridge at Kiso River. Among the large flocks of ducks we quickly located good numbers of the teal. From here we drove past Kisen Dam without seeing the hoped for Crested Kingfisher. We were better off with the big flocks of corvids near Ogura, near Kyoto, where we found several Daurian Jackdaws including a couple of adult "pied" birds. We hurried back to Osaka in order to take the limousine bus to the airport for our flight to Kyushu.

Nine days later (after the shows), Rob came back, while Heather and I stayed in AsiaPac for another 12 days. I did some work, she did some exploring. Here is my report of the first 8 days... typos and all...

    (July 8, 2000) Part 1 Phish tour Japan 2000 Until a month ago, I'd never been farther west than California. Hell, I didn't manage to get to Europe until last summer. Suffice to say, I didn't consider myself much of a traveller. Well, all that changed on June 7th when we boarded United Airlines Flight 853 to Tokyo, Japan. It didn't really hit me until we were actually on the plane and the video screen showed our flight trajectory. Not 24 hours before, I was working the BEA booth at JavaOne and trying to tie up a dozen loose ends at work. But then it really hit me. We were about to fly for 11 hours over the pacific...
