After our last stop in Taipei on May 17, we'd spent a few days at sea before returning to Kobe on the 20th. Leaving the ship we took a 5 hour bullet train ride from Kobe to Tokyo and then to Narita International Airport, catching a 6:10 pm flight home. On the way to Japan we'd lost a day due to crossing the International Dateline. Now returning home we gained that day back, making it home on the 20th at 11:30 am. I wish we could always arrive hours before we left.
It had been a great trip, but now it was time to return home.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!
