My dear friends,

All is can say is …“Ah!”

The weather here: Sunny. Mild. Shed a layer of sweaters.

Forget the north.  Forget Tokyo.  Forget the cold and the snow!

I’m an independent traveler.   I checked the map.  I booked a ticket.  At Kyoto I boarded the “Super Express” to Kagoshima (4 hours) – the southernmost metropolis on the main islands of Japan. (pop 605,640)
