lol, ok. Here are some pics from Miyajima, Kyoto and Osaka Castle.

Alright, we'll start again with the Tori outside the floating shrine in Miyajima. It looks amazing at day time, but was even more beautiful at night. Awesome place.

This is approaching the island by water.

Posted Image

and at night. breathtaking.

Posted Image

Miyajima is absolutely covered in wildlife. There are Deer everywhere, and they are not afraid to come up and try and snatch your stuff. Most of them have they antlers docked but some bad-ass ones higher up in the mountain still have them. You don't want to piss them off.

Posted Image

Here are two deer looked in mortal combat.

Posted Image

When I was down at Miyajima it was late autumn 2006. Very busy time as everyone wants to see the leaves change. The colours are just amazing.

Posted Image

5 Story Pagoda on Miyajima

Ok, I'll ad some Osaka and Kyoto pics later. :P

ok, Osaka Castle. Apart from the castle (now a sort of lookout and museum) and the amazing grounds there is also a kick ass takoyaki stall here, highly reccomended!

Posted Image

Probably the most amazing part of Osaka castle is the castle walls, grounds and moat. Some of the stones in the wall are insanely massive. Amazing.

One of the biggest stones. The biggest one has a surface area of 60m2 and weights 130tonne!

Ok, the wet moat:

Ok here is two pics for the train fans. These are both Nozomi Shinkansen. One is a 500 class train and the other is a 700 class. I've been on both many times. Nozomi shinkansen is not cheap, but it is fast, and comfortable. I've take trips from Tokyo to Kyoto, to Osaka, to Kyushu (f*kuoka) and nothing beats being on a train going over 300km/h whilst you sip your beer and read your GTR magazine!

500 class nozomi

Posted Image

700 class Nozomi (these are massive with something like 15 cars!!)

Posted Image

The view at 300km/h

Posted Image

The secret to happy shinkansen travel. Find something to read (in this case camera manual), bring or buy plenty of beer, have phone handy and make the odd trip to the smoking section as required.

Posted Image

Whilst we are on trains. Here is Kyoto station. Don't ask why they have astro boy out the front...

great post - I have massively enjoyed your photos and commentary - keep it coming!

I have an 'adopted' Japanese 'sister' recently moved here to Adelaide from Nagoya (have known here for nearly all of my life) - she is a master at cooking us up Okonomiyaki - I can't get enough of the stuff!!!! Have you ever heard of Chris Glenn on the radio over there? He is from Adelaide and is apparently a radio superstar over there all over.

skyichigo : With the rims, I was thinking paint the wheels black.. as bigger rims f**k the engine ... thats my own old school opinion anyway, will consider it later.
skyichigo : it was when I did my RWC for my previous car, and when the mechanic look at my 19" rims. he said that the engine will work harder to run those big wheels and it's less space for the engine as well, and sometimes carrying too much heavy wheels on the car can possibly damage the engine mounting , and just by logic, you put bigger rims, your engine revs harder.. and imagine how long the engine life last compared to smaller rims.
