day 349 - Goodbye Himeji



At Himeji's Historical Museum Lyn had the chance to dress in the junihitoe, the very elaborate and beautiful twelve-layered kimono which was worn by the ladies of the Imperial Court in the Heian period (794- 1185).





Today is our last day in Himeji. We've packed so much into the past 349 days. We can't believe that almost a year has passed in this amazing place.

You make a crummy samurai, Rob =P. You'd look much more at home with a flute in one hand and a calligraphy brush in the other ^^.

Thanks, Joanne. We had an amazing year in Japan, but now we're back home in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Thanks for your interest and comments in the journal over 2008. You certainly have a beautiful country - we hope to get back one day.
When I get nostalgia for Nihon, I'll just check out Aikawarazu!
