Photo of the week (2/52): The first manga ever!  That's right! You can find it at Kozanji Temple, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, in Kyoto. Stored within the temple grounds is a set of four picture scrolls (Choju Jinbutsu Giga, lit.: “animal-person caricatures”) dating back to the 10th-11th centuries.  More about it here: http://zoomingjapan.com/travel/why-manga-fans-should-visit-kansai/ #Japan #Kansai #Kyoto

Manga fans should visit Kansai because there's the Kyoto International Manga Museum, the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in Takarazuka and the four picture scrolls of Kozanji Temple that are considered to be the oldest work of manga in Japan.

I got my Japan Railpass. (*_*)b This is actually the first time I get to use it. As some of you might know, you cannot get it when you're a resident of Japan as it's meant for tourists. FINALLY I can use this as well. (^____^)b  It's the 14 day pass and I got it from here: www.japan-experience.com  Once I'm back from my trip, I'll let you know in detail how much I saved using this pass.

Late September - early October is actually a good time to visit Okinawa. You can still go diving and snorkeling. But it's also still typhoon season. 2 typhoons hit the last time I went there in October (2014), but all in all it was still great: http://zoomingjapan.com/travel/kerama-islands/

The Kerama Islands (慶良間諸島) consist of 22 smaller islands southwest of Okinawa’s main island. It's one of Japan's best places for snorkeling.
