Japan Bonus Level

  Here are some more photos I took over in Japan on my recent visit.  All of the photos taken were in Tokyo, unless otherwise stated.  It's a random mix of images, presented with no other thematic
relationship, other than being from Japan.  Enjoy.

   Icicles in Gunma, not far from the onsen (hot springs resort) where we stayed.   
 No, not London, as you may have guessed from the double-decker bus, but Roppongi, just in front of Midtown.

 Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku
 This Onsen (hot springs resort) is the Shima Onsen in Gunma Prefecture (100 kn north-west of Tokyo).  This 80 year old onsen is serviced by a 320 year old ryokan (Japanese inn).  More recently, it served as one source of inspiration for the bathouse in Sen to Chihiro no Kami Kakushi (Spirited Away), the Studio Ghibli anime masterpiece from Hayao Miyazaki.
