I’ve been thinking about Japan a lot lately as I’m mentally preparing to be a ninja in this summer’s water ballet (this year’s show is Strange Customs: A Flurry Family Odyssey). Anyway, more to come on that in forthcoming posts, but for now I’m in Japan mode and am totally drawn to Anna[matic]’s latest creation – a map of Nara to commemorate her most recent trip. Anna always puts together amazing city guides upon returning from her trips – mostly throughout Asia – with great photos, but I love how she opened this post with something she created based on her experiences (it’s a great city- make sure you feed the deer!). In case you missed it, you can catch Annamatic’s Boarding Pass feature (the debut of the column!) here, and don’t miss all of her fantastic (and useful) city guides through the eye of a foodie/designer here.
