I am in Kanazawa right now – the Wikitravel article says to “remember your umbrella, because it rains a lot.” Of course, I left my $5 umbrella in Osaka.

My first two days here, the weather was pretty nice and warm – I thought “wow, I don’t see why they say it rains all the time.”

You guessed it – whistling at the wind. It rained all day today.

Tomorrow I leave here for Tokyo, and my last full day in Japan. Then a nice (sarcasm) 14 hour plane ride, and I return to my normal life of sitting in a cubicle for 10-12 hours a day instead of exploring temples and shrines. Oh well, the vacation was nice while it lasted, and work is what enables me to take a month off for travelling.
