Travel to Japan: 15 days of extraordinary live experiences

 Cred ca se putea si in romana, titlul, dar parca totusi suna mai bine in engleza, chiar daca e cam lung. Pe scurt, e vorba de obiectivele pe care planuiesc sa le vizitez si, chiar daca in unele zile sunt prea multe si nu voi putea sa ajung la toate, macar stiu ca am un plan pe care voi incerca sa-l respect. E un itinerariu destul de diferit de cele oferite de agentiile de turism, are si temple si altare, dar si parcuri de distractie, cel mai inalt roller coaster din lume, celebrul acvariu din Osaka, ape termale si multe alte activitati recreative care, in mod normal, nu se gasesc pe circuitele standard de turism.

Cate dintre ele voi reusi sa bifez, asta ramane de vazut, poate vor fi si altele pe care nici macar nu le banuiesc acum, dar in orice caz, urmeaza 15 zile de experiente extraordinare si voi incerca sa impart cu voi, pe blog, zilnic, macar o parte din ele, daca nu pe toate.

P.S. Poza de sus nu e din Japonia, am incercat in zadar de cateva luni sa descopar unde se afla acel minunat loc, o am de mai multe luni de zile pe desktop si cred ca ma uit zilnic la ea. Am pus-o in articol, pentru ca reprezinta intr-un fel Japonia sau cel putin o parte a ei. Si, daca vedeti in program, un loc unde am notat „SPECIAL”, am notat tocmai pentru faptul ca aducea intr-un anume fel cu locul din poza.
