Just got back 4 hours ago, and I'm tired and exhausted. I got up this morning at 6h30, and it's now 23h (but those 6h30 was a 7 hour time difference), so I'm almost 24 hours awake (as I just can't sleep on a plane). Got unpacked, but most of the stuff… more »

I was getting very tired so I slept until 11h and only went to Himeji today. Originally I was also going to Okayama after Himeji but I abandoned that plan. So I could also be back early at the hotel. So I took the shinkansen to Himeji, and walking out… more »
