Japan - Oct 2015

IMG 0004

Late on Friday 23th October 2015, we arrived in Yokohama, Japan, to visit an old friend and undertake a 5-day road trip; our first ever attempt at driving in Japan!  The following pages highlight our time in and around Yokohama, but mostly features our road trip driving north through the Japan alps to Kanazawa on the north coast, stopping at some UNESCO World Heritage sites to see the Gassho-style village houses in the Shirakawa district, then returning via the perilous coastal road next to the Japan Sea. Our last full day in Yokohama included a fun time making our own pot noodles and enjoying the wonderful displays of illuminations on the water front.
