35-49 year old male

Nashville, TN

I have a thing for Japan; I lived there and have gone back countless times. I prefer unusual travel; a walk around the old industrial district East of Himeji is more interesting than a visit to Kyoto. Part of it is I've been to the tourist areas many times and seen what there is to see, usually waiting in lines or suffering through crowds. The neighborhood temple or shrine - the place tucked into a residential area and kept up by the people in the area - is more fascinating than a mega shrine. I've done some travel writing and hope to do more as time goes by, hopefully turning it into a career. My recent travels are documented here: http://japantravel2012.blogspot.com/ http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/worthj1970/6/tpod.html
