My next post was going to be Vienna part 2. But in light of the recent tragic events in Japan, I have decided to put that post on hold until later this week.

I have visited Japan many times and always can’t wait to return. In fact, I have a motorcycle trip through the southern part of Japan planned for March 27th. (Whether that will happen now or not, remains to be seen).

Japan is by far one my favorite places in the world and my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering through this disaster right now.

To honor their country and their people, I am posting some of my favorite photos of Japan. It is truly a beautiful place with an amazing history and culture.
