Our Japan Visit


You asked for some photos of our Japan trip! Wife’s favourite is photo ending 45!

We were on a small cruise ship (only 100 guests) for 14 days travelling all around Japan.
Included a photo in a coach luggage compartment to show how easy transport was.
She also navigated roughish tracks (I had brought a 50 mm thick foam “cushion” for the seat!) up to temples and some steep slopes. Japan is very hilly/mountainous (70% of land is unusable for housing etc.). Worried we might kill the battery some days but lasted out. Being on the ship we could recharge LUGGIE every night! Japan is a doddle to travel with scooter. Public lifts everywhere, Japanese people HUGELY courteous and wanting to assist at any kerbs etc. Travel on bullet train FABULOUS!!!!! Conductor held back other passengers and escorted my wife riding into train and to seat, and then we placed scooter in “luggage” area! Just one or two places where flights of steps could have caused problem but our local guide whistled up “assistance” people at every place and we were whisked through “private areas” etc.
Everywhere we went she was treated like Royalty!!!!

Clean, courteous, SAFE, NO LITTER (almost a personal sin!), NO POTHOLES IN ROADS!!!!!. We had been about 10 years ago in Cherry Blossom time and said WE MUST GO BACK – it’s that good.
L O N G way there flights (but we went Business Class so we never really knew about it after evening meal as we were asleep for our night flight). Coming back in the daylight was B O R I N G!
