After leaving my mom to the airport I departed to Niigata (nono... there's no mistake, the title of this post is Sendai but I said I was going to Niigata, you're right :P )
After visiting many big towns, we finally decided to see something else from Japan... a littl town in the Japanese Alps named Takayama, very famous and touristic.
After Osaka, we headed back in the direction of Tokyo. We were thinking to go maybe to Kyushu or Shikoku, but my mom leaves next Monday so this would not have left much time there. So finally we decided to go to central Japan... which started by Nagoya.
After Kyoto, we headed westward to the nearby city of Osaka... the 2nd or 3rd biggest city in Japan.
After Tokyo we headed to Kyoto, the classic choice for foreign tourists in Japan, visiting first the hyper-modern Tokyo and second the traditional Kyoto.
So finally, after 3 weeks of "vacations" in France I flew to Japan with my mom... to spend 3 weeks there, before going to China.
