Shoguns and Nikko
« on: August 28, 2020, 05:58:05 am »

Interesting article.  A long time ago I was invited to a scientific conference in Nikko  I was looking forward to the Japanese traditional hotel experience but it turned out that the conference was in a western style hotel (Kanaya) - not the local Hilton, or whatever, but a Japanese idea of what a western hotel is like, with faux-French food etc.  It was a bit disappointing, but also a curiosity as it turned out to be where Einstein stayed in Japan, and is an aspirational destination for Japanese.

The point of these reminiscences?  None really, but I wish I'd had a knowledgeable guide at the time!
