For the last decade I have had a running list of things that I want to do before I die.  My bucket list includes everything from foods I would like to try, places I would like to go and experiences that I would like to have before the end of my life.  This list is pretty important to me, so I am continually working on adding to it and working on getting as many of the items off the list.  It sounds a little morbid, but I don’t want to live a life where I have any regrets, so I need to be working on it all of the time.

Recently I discovered GeorgeFoo.com, a site of a traveling photographer that captures shots and moments from around the world.  I happened to end up reading his post about Osaka-Kyoto in Late Spring by accident when I discovered some of his pictures on Pintrest.  I was intrigued by the photos as I have never traveled to Japan, and many of the images where breathtaking.

I had never realized that Japan was such a beautiful place.

Based on the photographs, I decided to add Japan to my bucket list.  I want to experience the sights, the food and the culture of that country before I die.  It definitely looks like a place worth visiting.
