Tsukuba, Japan

These photographs do not do justice to wonderful and very beautiful city of Tsukuba. Unfortunately, the best photos were lost. I used whatever I could salvage. These pictures can be of interest to those who is planning to visit Tsukuba-shi, who lived there, and who wants to peek into Japan without its glamorous sheen, which prevails elsewhere. The closest major airport is Narita International Airport (40 km or 25 miles). Bus carries people daily from the airport to the city's center.

Tsukuba is ICHIBAN!
