We just arrived back in Osaka this evening from our travels, crawling along the north coast of Japan—the area known as Hokuriku (北陸). Despite the weather forecasts of rain for just about every day, it was sunny and hot—unbelievably so for late November—and exceedingly pleasant.

There’s some really beautiful scenery up there. Fields; mountains; sea (and consequently plenty of tasty fish). Some of my photographs came out very well. Watch this space.

It was relaxing, and also tiring. Time for bed, and a day off before my next excursion.
