After a twelve-hour flight, I arrived in Japan on June 9 at about 5:00 pm local time. The next morning at about 7:00 am, I was on a train with my friend Eric to Kanazawa for the Hyakumangoku Festival. After a few days in Kanazawa and one night in the UNESCO World Heritage site at Shirakawa-go, I was back in Tokyo for some great sightseeing. Japan is a great country to visit--especially when you have friends that are fluent in the language and culture.
