My Favorite Hangout
It is Watami(和民). I love the barbeque and hot pot there. Went there 3 times in all.
I have the unique opportunity of travelling with a variety of people in this autumn period. I truly value the time we spent together in the Autumn of 2007 in Japan. They are from all over the world - Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Korea and Australia.
With the Shiga Gang. We visited Kyoto during the first weekend, Osaka for 1 day and Himeiji+Kobe on another day.
With Kim-san. We visited Kyoto Arashiyama and Nara over one weekend.
With Robert, I first met him on the way up to Koyasan and we checked into the same Shukubo (temple lodging).
