Some of the pictures I took on my last day in Japan, in November 2012. With a few hours to kill before the flight back home, John and I figured we’d take a quick train ride to Chiba from Narita, to see whatever sights could be seen on a cold, rainy day. We did get to ride the Chiba Monorail, and at one end of the line they had the street blocked off for the Chiba Ekiden marathon, which was neat to see. Mostly, though, it was raining too much to get excited about anything, which basically matched my mood about coming back to the U.S.
At any rate, here’s the gallery of photos, enjoy!
