JAPAN 2013 by quashlo | 梅雨入り前の一人旅

I made my 4th visit to Japan during the last two-thirds of May, a 23-day stint up and down the islands. My previous trips had mostly focused on the larger metropolitan areas in Kantō and Kansai, with the occasional small day-trip to nearby destinations, but I decided on a slightly different approach planning my trip this time: 一日一町, taking on a new and different city each day. A lot of time was spent on 終電, the last trains of the evening—in some cases, I nearly missed my train—but I was able to cover an incredible amount of ground and maximize my time in each of the over 20 cities I visited:

Japan is frequently characterized as a “homogenous” culture, but for being so homogeneous, it packs an amazing bit of diversity in everything from dialects and cuisine to climate and history, which I got a pretty good taste of on this trip. To start off the thread, here’s a quick spin through each of the cities. As last time, all photos are RAWs straight from the camera, so sorry if they don’t look as “polished” as they could be. I visited before the start of the early summer rainy season (tsuyu 梅雨) and was met with some less than cooperative weather on more than one day, so in some ways, I don’t feel I was able to get as many great pictures as I would have liked.
