We're in the middle of our first, long-distance tour - all (well, most) of Japan. We're taking about 3 months to slowly travel from Hokkaido to Kyushu and we are currently on our 59th day and in Nagasaki. We've been keeping a daily log, mostly for ourselves and our families, but if you're interested, please check out the log, the photos, the data, whatever!
Japan is an absolutely wonderful place to tour. As I mentioned, this is our first real tour and I'm honestly worried about touring in other countries - touring in Japan is almost complete leisure!
