In the past I've seen some very good sites for getting a real feel about a place.
I'd love people to give me links to culturally related sites they are involved with or just like.
I've added Ryokan View Blog as it is being made as a Window to Ryokan Culture.
Sites dedicated to any culture are welcome to be added here:
Nagano Samurai Battles - click box in centre for animated story
Poet Kobayashi Issa's Words about Yudanaka village & life - Hokusai's Linguistic Rival??^-^
Nakano Animal Museum & Planetatrium - visit local Bird Man, Doctor Ken Motomura - 20years of in depth study of Chogenbo Eagles dilemma
