Back home!
Japan was a wonderful and unexpected jaunt, but the pace of the short trip was hectic and I feel I need another vacation! Have been sleeping off the jetlag and exhaustion the past couple of days.

We covered a fair bit of ground for ten days including Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Takayama, Shirakawa Go and Tokyo with stops at several places enroute. Like most escorted tours, we were taken to a lot of places with little time at each. Not quite my style of travel. But the payoff to putting up with the punishing schedule, was the interaction and bonding with a bunch of wonderful, talented women.

Torii, Itsukushima Shrine - Japan

I have loads of images of course, even if I was still not quite familiar with the extra bulk and features of my new camera. Shall take a while to sort them all out. In the meantime here is a silhouette of the same Torii (gate) of the Itsukushima shrine that I said Sayonara with.
