A few sketches from Japan

Tenryū-ji Temple in Tokyo 

Tenryū-ji Temple is the head temple of the Tenryū branch of Rinzai Zen Buddhism. Wikipedia article on Tenryū-ji Temple gives you more details.

In the Shinkansen 

The Shinkansen is the Japanese bullet train, a great way to travel between cities in Japan. They run like clockwork. You need to be ready to board or get out very quickly. I have been told-off once for not getting on board fast enough (and therefore making it leave a few seconds late…)

Train to Hakone 

Hakone is in the mountains west of Tokyo, in Japan's Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. It is a beautiful place and, when the weather is clear, you can see Mount Fuji.
