Two months in Japan during next Summer

Last Summer I spent the whole April in Japan and once returned to Finland, I was pretty exhausted of all the travelling. Even so, it took just few weeks until I started to plan for the next adventure, which will now take place in May and June of 2011.

Places to be visited, not an exclusive list:

I have already bought the flights, going there in 29th April and coming back in 6th July. A note for burglars, I will not have an apartment in Finland during that time, thus I have no place where my belonging could be stolen from. Sorry about this inconvenience.

While doing the research in regard to the journey plan, I finally found time to put all the pictures from the earlier adventure on the Flickr map.
