We've book another vacation to Japan -- it's been one-and-a-half years since we visited, so it was high time to go again. ;)

We're flying out on April 7th, back on April 29th. We'll be staying in Tokyo, Nikko, Kyoto, Naoshima, Hiroshima, Yufuin, near Mt. Aso, Nagasaki and Fukuoka. So lots of travel, but with a good mix of places we've been before and new (to us) places. Especially looking forward to visiting Tokyo again, and seeing what Naoshima is all about.

We're both very much looking forward to it. To get in the mood, we went to Amsterdam on Saturday, to see usmu and take him to the okonomiyaki place there. Lots of fun and good food was had by all.

WOW, what a trip! I've never even heard of Naoshima before, but I can't wait to hear what you think of it! :)

I hope you don't mind that I stalked your LJ a little after seeing your post here and found it totally fascinating. Would you be terribly bothered if I added you? You seem to like a lot of things that I do, and maybe you would inspire me to take Battlefield 3 out of my PS3 and put Assassin's Creed 3 back in for a while?

Tadao Ando is klik's favourite architect (we have quite a few books about his works in our bookcase), so a visit to Naoshima was high on the list. We skipped it the previous time, because we were going spend a lot of our budget on staying on Mt. Koya.
But this time, it was put on the 'must-see' list!

I am so jealous!! It's been since 2008 that I went to Japan, can't believe it has been so long. I need to get back there soon.

I'm also pretty jealous that you can get okonomiyaki in Amsterdam. While I will certainly remember the floating torii the most about my excursion to Miyajima, the okonomiyaki I got on the island is a very close second. So good!

It's interesting how everyone who visited Japan wants to go back...

Well, seeing that it's at the other end of the country, we don't go there that often... Maybe once a year. So it's a special treat for us too.
The best we had was on top of the Hiroshima station. We already know where we're going to eat when we're back there. :)

Gaaf dat jullie weer gaan, en ik kan me jouw gevoel helemaal voorstellen, dat het alweer "zo lang" geleden is dat jullie geweest zijn (heb ik met New York) Ik kijk nu al weer uit naar jullie reisverslagen!
