Kyoto is the place to visit in Japan. I had a really great time there.

The bamboo grove in a quiet neighborhood.

Hakodate is a city in the south of Hokkaido (the top north island).
It was freezing, but also peaceful and good for hiking.

I had a walk at night.

I saw Pavlina again (a girl I met in a guest house in Korea). She and her boyfriend, Gaku invited me to their place and took good care of me :D

First night a walk around the city and a crazy view from the 45th floor of a building.
