Japan 2018

We returned to Japan in 5-15 March 2018, and started from Osaka, then south to Kyushu visiting Nagasaki, ending with a day trip to Himeji.

We returned to Japan in 5-15 March 2018, mainly because Qantas was opening a route to Osaka and was offering a sale. Once again, the trip was organised by Dan Campbell of InsideJapan Tours. This time, we asked Dan to create an itinerary for us starting from Osaka, but then travelling south to Kyushu visiting Nagasaki, then returning back to Osaka with a day trip to Himeji.

The weather on this trip was a lot colder than on our previous trip because we visited slightly earlier before the cherry blossom season, but we still managed to see a few buds and on the last few days the weather warmed up a bit.
