Japan - 3 months in a different world

During my PhD back in 2010, I was lucky and got the opportunity to become a visiting researcher at the University of Tokyo for 2 months (and being a bit insistent, I was able to add some travel at the back of it). This was my first time to Japan and I immediately fell in love with the country. I chronicled my adventures in a tumblr blog - if you are heading to Japan, check it out :)
