Meticulously designed and maintained, Zooming Japan is an informative and engaging blog focused on life in and travel within Japan. The blogger, Jasmine T., has a friendly writing-style, and her photography makes you feel as though you're right in Japan. Recently she has begun to include a "Tourist Information" box below her entries. This feature is quite useful as it provides data regarding fees, opening hours, access, and more. I am a long-time subscriber and admirer of the Zooming Japan blog. Reading about the various items, festivals, shrines, and aspects of daily life makes me look forward to my own trip to Japan. I appreciate all of the time and effort Jasmine T. puts into producing her blog entries, each of which is packed with photos and knowledge. If you're interested in Japan and travel, definitely give this blog a visit.
