Mondays post is usually about what is going on around my home in Tucson, Arizona
But I have been thinking of Japan, see my Sunday post below.
So I thought I would post just a few photos of some favorite places.

    1. Not sure if you read my post about Nara but the deer roam freely around the town especially where the Temple is. They are messengers of of the Gods.
      I remember standing at a street corner waiting for the light to change and there was a deer waiting to cross with me. Surreal ! Just like he was was on his was to clock in at work for the day... what a hoot !
      This was a highlight of my trip to the Temple.

    1. The Perl Bridge is very beautiful. At night the color of the lights on the bridge give you the weather forecast for the next day.

  7. What a nice selection of pictures, there's something so attractive about them. I love the one of the garden of the Adachi Museum and the top one of Osaka looks strange and other worldly.
