That white building in the top left corner was the poshest place we stayed on this trip - the cocktail bar near the top is highly recommended, both for its cocktails and the stunning night views.

I was hoping to see some red Autumn leaves on this trip, and these were probably the best ones we got to see.

This is the newest of the Shinkansen lines, and the interiors of trains are nicely trimmed, and spacious.

Another of the high-points of Nagasaki - literally, on this occasion. Interesting old "European" buildings, with great views over Nagasaki - particularly at sunset.

Nagasaki is one of my favourite towns in Japan, and it has a nice little Chinatown, though it was a bit quiet when we went there.

Taken by The Belated Birthday Girl on 07/11/2004. First in a series of her holiday snaps, to tie in with the article on our Japan holiday at The Unpleasant Lair.



This was my favourite of all the places we stayed on this trip: a lovely little traditional Ryokan.
