quote of the day
Watching the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, I felt a mix of sadness and pride. After 18 months barred from entering, like many other lovers of Japan – not to mention travelers with plans on hold – I am itching to return. So, for 17 days, I was glued to the Olympic coverage on TV, as much for the thrill of watching Team GB as to catch sight of a country I love; of Mount Fuji, of the Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo Bay, of the rolling Pacific Coast, even downtown Sapporo, way up in Hokkaido, where the marathon events were shifted to cooler climes.
