Japanese Ties... What is it that keeps me coming back?

Hi all - the most immediate answer to the above question is a Japanese wife - but that doesn't really explain what it is that I love about Japan, and why I enjoy going back there time and time again. My first trip was in 2003, when my then girlfriend (future wife) and I jumped on a plane making use of frequent flyer points to go over to Japan.

The following is a brief outline of my journey through Japan, and in particular Hokkaido (Sapporo) and around Tokyo and Kyoto. Hopefully there will be some interesting piccies and bits of advice (though I'm writing about the earliest trips that are now about 7 years ago - so things may have changed since then). I'm trying to write up my trips as fast as I can, so please be patient! ? : )


Originally I was going to date this according to the REAL date - rather than the post date - but my wife (T-chan) has convinced me to change the dates to the actual post dates. Sorry for any confusion.
