    Hi there

    I do really enjoyed your website “Nippon Journey”. Japn was our favourite country for our vacation. We have just visited the Sapporo Snow Festival. But due to the enconomic downturn, the festival was not as grand as before.

    Would visiting your web for any new ventures.


  2. YP – Glad to know that you’ve enjoyed the Japan posts and thank you for visiting my blog. Japan is certainly an amazing country.

    PS: I have one small request – if you see a bullet train could you take a photo of it. I am working on something that involves aerodynamics and I am really interested in the latest way to cheat wind, not break wind. Thanks 🙂

  22. Darkness, your request here – Bullet trains . Hope it’s what you’re after.

  29. I haven’t been to Sungei Wang for more than half a year now, Azad but if you make a trip there and wander around, I’m sure you’ll come across a couple of shops stocking replica Vans.

  30. Hi!!
    I found this cool blog when I was searching for T2tea.
    Actually my Aussie wife wants to import T2tea and have a small cafe in Hokkaido.
    Anyway thanks for the good posts, and I’d love it if you could have a look at my blog as well!!

  31. Hello Kyohei,

    Glad to know you enjoyed the posts. How are you going with importing T2tea? I love their concept.

    Hi Linda,

    Which Paris apartment did you stay? Am going there at the end of the year. Thanks. All the best.

  33. Hi Koi,

    You must be excited. I stayed at Saint Germain Severin apartment in the St Michel area.

    Thanks, Linda. Although it is a high school graduation present for my son, I’m more excited than he is. My only time in Paris was with his mom before he was born. Louvre & Eiffel that’s all. We’ll spend more time there this trip. I’m reading your France posts for ideas as I am still planning the trip. Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, may have to drop Budapest (already dropped Ljubljana from my plan). Best regards from Perth.

  35. Wow. That is a lot of places to cover. I spent 3 weeks in France and only managed to cover parts of Northern France. Hope my France posts were able to give you some ideas. Planning for travel is part of the fun too. I am up to Day 13 with my France posts and have about 10 days remaining, mostly out of Paris.
