I'm in a ryokan in Kanazawa at the moment. Soon, my girlfriend Sharman and I will head to the famous Kenroku-en and a variety of other sights in this lovely town. But before we do, I wanted to post this acrostic poem. I sort of regret not writing a Haiku, but the simplicity of this is similar. Here it is, the creative offering of the week.
Joined together by shared history, identity and Shinkansen
Awe-inspiring, from skyscrapers to gardens to train maps
Polite and patient, even when the language barrier presents a great challenge
Artistic, with extraordinary care put into the tiniest of details
Never-ending possibilities of exploration and enlightenment
