As I wrote about in my post on the Japanese travel year, next week is Golden Week, when people in Japan travel over the holidays. The switch in the economy has meant people work more and travel less, but we are still not seeing inflation for real - even if it is happening. Japan is still cheap for international visitors, if you avoid the luxuries.
I am Wisterian Watertree, recently moved from Bangkok to Tokyo, with a brief visit to Honolulu on the way. I write about travel, especially with our three beautiful kids (two girls and one boy, soon turning six - yes. they are triplets). Travel is education and fun rolled into one, and if you are like me, that is something you want to give to your kids. If you want more tips and want to find out when I will publish something, get it from my email list. If you want to be personal, drop me a note on firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you want general tips, follow me on Twitter @wisterianw.
