I went to Japan in June. I spent a day in Kyoto, a day in Tokyo, a few days in Matsumoto, and a day in Nagoya. Overall I give the Japan trip three and a half Yelp stars.

Kyoto is famous for having lots of shrines and for having the Philosopher’s Path, pictured here:

Tokyo had some odd cultural things:

Tokyo also has a revisionist war museum at the site of the war criminal shrine:

I went hiking at Mt Yakedake near Matsumoto:

One part of the Mt Yakedake hike involved climbing ladders, some of which didn’t seem so safe:

Matsumoto has an old castle:

The best thing about Nagoya is that it has the Toyota museum. This museum has two parts. Toyota was originally a loom company:

Toyota started making cars later on:

The car part of the museum has a garden of motive power:
