Tokyo…and beyond!

It’s May 4, 2017. Our last day in Japan. The end of our too brief two-day visit to Tokyo. Tonight we head to Narita Airport on our way back to Winnipeg.

But Gail and I are not yet done with Japan. In just one week from writing this blog post, October 27, we will be returning to Japan once more, briefly stopping in Tokyo before flying to Matsuyama on Shikoku island. There, we will resume our Henro long-distance walk, starting in nearby Ōzu, where we left off on April 22. We will continue our pilgrimage around the island for another 425 kilometres, taking in Temples 44 to 88 before returning to Temple 1. 

For this final leg of our Shikoku walk, I plan to post daily on WalkClickMake. No text, just one or two photos with brief captions. Essays and more extensive photo coverage will have to wait for our return to Winnipeg. It is just too hard to construct detailed posts on the road, especially after a long day of walking, a long soak in an onsen, a good evening meal and, of course, an (un)healthy round of beer and sake.

In the meantime, here are our last two days in May. Join Gail and me as we lose ourselves to the beautiful frenzy of Tokyo’s lights and crowds.
