Japan Autumn Nov 2017 一人で日本の旅 Ibaraki 茨城県 - Day 1: Mito-shi 水戸市

On my most recent stay in Japan, I managed to cover three main prefectures: Ibaraki, Shizuoka and Tottori, with short transitions made in Shimane and Okayama. It took me slightly more than two weeks to accomplish this and I would say the pace was considered moderate in comparison to my previous solo expedition in Tohoku region more than a year ago. Utilised 14 Days Japan Rail Pass to cover majority of my transportation expenditure. This is also the first time I planned my itinerary while travelling; something I have not done before. Has its pros and cons; my schedule was more flexible and it could accommodate changing weather conditions; however at the back of my mind, I knew there were more places I could have visited if I had been more well prepared. Regardless of the hits and misses, I am still amazed by how much this country has to offer despite multiple visits!
