Finding Zen at Nanzoin Temple

Fukuoka wasn't really on my travel map until cheap tickets made me decide to go. The adventurous side of me wanted to visit another part of Japan as I've been to the usual places on my earlier trips. I didn't really decide on what to do and places to visit until the start of the day. I ended up deciding to visit Nanzoin Temple, because the other option was too far away.

Adventure in the Blue Moon Valley

After exploring the ancient and UNESCO-listed town of Lijiang, I had time to explore the mountains. Snow Mountain was the nearest destination, and I heard good things about it. Renting a car on my own was expensive, so I decided to go to an area where vans shuttled people to the park.

Budget and Itinerary for Nagoya and Central Japan Trip

I wanted to visit another area of Japan during my return trip, so I decided to book tickets to Nagoya, the gateway to Central Japan. I had no clear and definite itinerary in mind because I wanted to be flexible and just add or remove destinations while I'm there. I ended up traveling to Takayama, Shirakawago, Tsumago, Magome and Matsumoto, and exploring Nagoya.
