Living with Tokyo's pod people

Tokyo's capsule hotels are mostly used by workers who miss the last train home. To get a good night's sleep you may need earplugs to block out the noises coming from other capsules.

night's sleep you may need earplugs to block out the noises coming from other capsules.)

The first thing I notice when I lie back and relax in my hotel is the pong of my own feet. That's almost a relief because I had feared the onset of claustrophobia. The room I'm staying in is a fibreglass pod tall enough to sit up in and measuring 2m long by 1m wide - one of a row of 12 stacked two high (picture a human kennel). (New Zealand Herald)

It is sunny, wintry white. I'm in Hokkaido, Japan, during a particularly cold, snowy March. Icy wind lances through my many layers. No matter. The red-crowned cranes are gathered before me, jumping sporadically in jubilation, probing the marshy wallows for hibernating fish and frogs. Occasionally, one triumphantly waves a flailing snake. At night they roost in nearby streams, the water being warmer than air temperature. (huffingtonpost.com)

Enjoying the silence at another temple
kyoto

I can confidently say Kyoto is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I would certainly include it in my top 5. For over 1000 years, Kyoto was the capital of Japan. As an American, that concept is extremely tough to grasp. Walking through today's Kyoto you can't help but appreciate the incredible commitment to and feat of preservation this city represents.
