Near Atsuta-jingu shrine in southern Nagoya, Shirotori Garden is a beautiful traditional Japanese garden, with paths running around the banks of streams and ponds. Spacious and tranquil, the ponds and streams are connected by bridges and surrounded by immaculately tended trees and shrubs, which are reflected in the water. It's a wonderful place to escape the bustle of the city for an hour or two, and just stroll around at a leisurely pace, taking in the scenery and the restful atmosphere.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in summer 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I`m not working I write satire at www.iothern.blogspot.com and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check my youtube channel `CunningPunster` for a taste.
