Kiso Valley, Kansai, and on to Vietnam

We’ve left Japan and moved on Vietnam. I’m finding it hard to update this blog, as we’ve been doing a lot everyday. Find me on Facebook if you want more regular updates. But I’m hoping to have more free time starting with our next stop: Cat Ba Island.

After Tokyo, we went to Kiso Valley (highly recommended!), Kyoto, Amanohashidate, and the Osaka area, including Nara, Himeji, and Kobe.

Follow the links below for a selection of photos from each.

Hanoi is a very intense city, but feels very safe. And its really affordable! Sample costs: Hotel: $25/night. Taxi for 2-3 km: $2. Beer: $1. Good coffee: 40c. Cheap meal: $2. Nice meal: $10. Air pollution is horrible tho. Be sure to get a mask.
