In the meantime, I might as well write a blog about my first visit to the Land of the Rising Sun. Here are some ramblings about Japan and the memorable things I liked and observed.

Because bebelabs is finishing her Asia Trail Master Grandmaster quest in Malaysia with the Penang Eco 100, I had a free weekend where I didn’t have anything planned. So I used it to finally hike a mountain I haven’t been to before, Mt. 387. This is my hike account.
