Japan

9-10 October:  Cross from Korea by overnight or ferry and take the bullet train.  Get off at Hiroshima to pay my respects.
10-12 October: Stayed in a ryokan in Kyoto, City Tour with Walk Japan.
12-20 October: The Kudamo Kodo trail, one of the two World Heritage pilgrimage trails, the other being Santiago de Compostela.  When I discovered this, I wanted to make the latter a focus of my journey, on a guided tour with Walk Japan.
20-23 October: Tokyo
23-24 October: Narita Airport, staying at a capsule hotel ready for an early flight.
