  2. Swell? Well it’s swell. Also a bit swell headed.

  6. Blaze of Haze Hazy Pale. A new one from Adelaide Hills brewery, Prancing Pony. A great addition to their stable.
  7. @Sugar_Army download the NHK World app (Japanese national broadcaster) as the On Demand section has a lot of stuff that might help. It’s in English with sub-titles when necessary.

  11. After chopping some chilli, washing hands, going for a pish to suddenly discover the hand washing wasn’t as thorough as it should have been.
  12. Little Creatures has been around since 2000 although now owned by Kirin. Think I posted this beer in the last 6-12 months but it’s out now in a special can for Sydney Worldpride 2023 and the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras. They brew consistently good beers and this is no exception.
  13. It’s an amazing place and people are friendly. Amazing to think that 75% of the place is mountainous so they certainly squeeze a lot of people into the rest and seem to make use of any spare land to grow rice, vegetables etc. Nara and Nara Deer Park is interesting and close to Kyoto and Osaka but suggest you don’t bother with Osaka other than a place to change trains. JR pass info, if money not a huge issue go for the green pass. https://www.jrailpass.com/blog/how-to-use-japan-rail-pass
  14. On your way to Hiroshima spend a couple or more days in Kyoto then stop at Himeji to visit Himeji Castle. Look into getting a JR pass for train travel, also valid for some of the Tokyo lines. You’ve probably already done so but check through this thread for any comments from the sadly departed @sjc as he lived in Japan for a few years. If you have time in Hiroshima try to visit Miyajima Island also when in Hiroshima you must eat okonomiyaki. If you’re just doing Honshu island head to the Takayama region and stay in one of the onsen hotels. For planning train travel there is a great app called Hyperdia that I think you can download before you go. Tokyo is great but spend most of your trip outside it.
