Planty places to escape to in Berlin

•••
The end of Berlin's winter has a tendency to stretch out like chewing gum.

While those certainly are elements of Japan, they are not the only things that make Japan such an amazing place to visit. Everything from peaceful coastal fishing villages to beautiful temples set into mountain hillsides awa[...]
