I love reading blogs about people traveling to Japan on vacation. I love seeing all the photos, reading the descriptions of the sites seen, and watching how people take advantage of their Japanese language skills. I find these blogs extremely motivational in my studies because it gives me insight into where I’ll be visiting sometime (hopefully soon!) in the future.
Did you blog through a visit to Japan? Do you know any other past TextFugu members who did? I’d like to put together a list and sticky it in the forums for other people to draw motivation from.
Thanks for any and all links!

I did. I went with a friend last year, though this was way back before I started seriously learning Japanese. Probably full of all sorts of mistakes. =P
I, uh, wasn’t so great at uploading photos for it, though, mostly because it took forever, but my friend uploaded a bunch. I promise to do better next time, especially now that I can work Microsoft Live Writer. I did, however, finish making a digital scrapbook of it a couple of months ago, which I’ve been meaning to upload somewhere…
Incidentally, the “Older Entries” link on the front page is currently broken thanks to a backend upgrade or somesuch like that – your best bet might be to click the “first post” link in the sticky post and navigate using the calendar after that.
I’m also very interested to read others’ blogs. I heartily endorse this product and/or service. =DDecember 18, 2011 at 10:47 pm #22703
Thanks, Joel! I have you added to the list. Anyone else?December 23, 2011 at 2:36 am #22837
So, am I the only person to blog my way through Japan, or simply the only person careless enough about Internet security to post a link in an essentially public forum? =PDecember 23, 2011 at 3:35 am #22838
You should also post your email while you are at it ^^December 23, 2011 at 10:15 am #22840
Joel, so far you’re just the only one to post a link to a blog. I know of at least one other TextFugu’er who blogged a trip to Japan but no one else has responded to the thread. :(
Hopefully we’ll be able to collect a few more links!December 25, 2011 at 4:07 am #22958
I’m currently *on* my first trip to Japan, in Kyoto with my wife and a couple of friends for Christmas and New Year’s. It might be mid-January before I have all the pictures up on Flickr to my liking, though. I’ll try to remember to post a link here.December 25, 2011 at 5:23 pm #22968
I hope you have a wonderful trip! We’ll be looking forward to seeing all the photos. :)January 1, 2012 at 9:56 am #23219
I was writing an answer which ended up in the wrong thread – this computer seems to be in a really bad mood lately ;)
Here I post the text again

Well, Thomas is probably not a Textfugu member. He was walking throuth Japang since August 1st until yesterday, taking tons of lovely pictures.
He used to work for a travel agency but then he lost his job, because tourists wouldn’t visit Japan anymore…
While you watch the pictures, you can practice Japanese or German or English ;-)
Have fun looking and reading
