      That would be a wet dream in that case. It was raining and blowing a lot.

        Well, I don't care about the weather as long as I can explore all of Japan... but it would be nice to go during a time of the year when the weather is dryer!

          I can recommend the train ride across the mountains from Tokyo to Akita or v.v. Not the express train that spends most of the time in tunnels, but the slow train that stops at little stations all along the route. (If it still exists) Best time would be April or early May, when the fruit trees are in bloom and the fields are green, but any time will do.

          I did that trip back in 1975-78, when I was visiting Japan regularly and travelling all over the place by train. I found that the time it took to fly from for instance Tokyo to Hiroshima, (Hotel to hotel) was only marginally shorter than to do the same trip by Shinkansen, and a hell of a lot more comfortable.

          Spring in Japan is not just the cherry blossom season, although that is impressive enough. If that is the main attraction, I'll recommend visiting the area around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, or Kyoto, also in early spring.

          PS> It is obviously an advantage to be on an expense account when you visit Japan, but buy Lotto.

            BBC World News has made a program about One Square Mile in Nagasaki, which was aired some time ago: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-radio-and-tv-17285248
            Most about Chinatown, which I did not get any good pictures from, but also more about the original foreign (mostly Dutch) settlement of Dejima.
