Posts Tagged ‘ Kyoto travel ’

Tag – this theme’s “it” for a while.

Earlier today LetsJapan.Wordpress.Com updated its appearance.  Those new to this site won’t know the difference.  For those who’ve visited over the past 10 months, since this site’s/blog’s launch, will notice right away that this “Monochrome” format (that’s what it’s called:  Monochrome), with its clean gray-black borders, really helps the photography stand out a whole lot better than the all-white site.

=  Note to those who found there way here via a Tag:  Feel free to use the site Search Engine (bottom right-hand side) and enter the term/tag/post/info you’re looking for.  One or more posts/stories/galleries, etc. should pop up for you. =

Also quite different (than just 24 hours ago):  the top of the page has very few tabs.  Now each photo gallery is clickable through the drop-down tab (GALLERIES) at the page top, as are the stories, via the STORIES drop-down tab.

Finally, I ought to note that a couple of weeks ago I made a Facebook page for LetsJapan.Wordpress.Com to keep Facebook aficionados updated on posts and featured galleries and stories here.  I’ve also started posting a few Facebook-only comments, features and photos on the LetsJapan.Wordpress.Com Facebook page.

A photo apropos to nothing in this post.  I took in in Kyoto this past November and, well, I like it.

Finally, I’m “tagging” this post with many of my photo gallery and story themes and post topics (below and in prior pages) in hopes that this or that random googler will stumble upon this site and what it has to — and will — offer.

Hope you enjoy . . .

True Stories. Also, Trip Info.

Several people have emailed me and, yes, with one exception, these stories are true (or as true as I can remember them).  I plan on posting about 1 or 2 a week.  They’ll cover things such as hot springs, trains, country auctions, unspoken apologies, quirky inn owners, “syphon coffee”, nitrous oxide, (the?) one that got away, neighborhood eateries, karaoke, police boxes, Noh plays at sunset, my Japanese family, Kyoto side streets, and, of course, Lucky Cat Boppers.

Noodles.

Additional trip information for all (including costs and deadlines) will go up within the next couple of days, too.
