Suschi, Muschi Muschi. Saryonara and Samurai. Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Tokyo and Sony, Canon and Nikon. And that was all I knew about this country. I had hardly heard of Nikko, Nara, Kamakura, thought it was a place without any tradition. How wrong I was. Japan is so full of not only spectacular sights and sounds and silences, but also when it comes to its nature it is unbeatable. Next winter I shall start with the cold north, go to explore more of one of the true wonderlands of our Mother Earth. And then you will be surprised by how much more there is to be discovered.
