Reading a new book – “A Guide to the Good Life” by William B Irvine. It has taken up a little too much time today, so the hunting pictures and videos will go up when I get a few minutes. Also managed to squeeze a day trip to Yamadera – a town with a temple of a thousand steps. Yamadera breaks down into ‘yama – mountain’ and ‘dera – temple’ in Japanese. I’ll get the pictures and videos up from the trip later on as well. Of course the food was amazing – soba noodles with mountain mushrooms – served in a traditional Japanese restaurant. More on that later!
