I had been looking forward to visiting Naoshima and Teshima. Unfortunately, when I was there most pavilions at Teshima were closed. On top of that photography was not allowed at the pavilions and museums to preserve the sanctity of the sites. While I find this understandable it is still a shame. Naoshima itself is quite nice as well though. It is interesting to get a taste of rural Japan. Unfortunately, it was overcast most of the day.

More Japan! The Tsukiji Fish Market before it closed for good, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and the amazing Koyasan or Mount Koya.
