December, 1999 was the month I decided to use to see Japan. My girlfriend Julie was coming out to visit for a month, and we were going to travel like mad fiends.
In the end, we didn't travel as much as I had thought, but we still made quite a dash thru Japan. First, we went to Nagasaki (I didn't take many photos, as this was my third trip). We then had a week heading to Kyoto Nara Osaka, Hiroshima and Miyajima.
Highlights of Japanese culture were out in full force in December, from the Dragons in front of every post office (for the new year, which is the year of the dragon), to the fully decked out Colonel Sanders at KFC. Notice also the scuba santa and also the whale shark swimming near him.
