It’s the last day of my very busy trip to Japan. So busy, in fact that I had a spreadsheet just to organise myself. I travelled Osaka–Tokyo–Osaka–Fukuoka–Osaka–Tokyo–northern Shiga–Osaka. I took the Shinkansen six times in total. I probably spent as much as 24 hours on various trains during these two weeks. I saw a lot of friends, and it was really very enjoyable.

I’m flying to Shanghai this afternoon, via China Eastern Airlines. I wonder if they are as bad as their reputation.

In the meantime, here are some photos of Hiyoshi Shrine in Shiga. I wrote the gallery creation tool on one of my Shinkansen rides. It uses Ruby, ImageMagick, and xsltproc.
