The first real world location to report on was mentioned in today's episode (ep. 5), and is the Okayama Korakuen.
This is a traditional Japanese garden located in Okayama, and is considered one of the very best examples in the entire country. Known for its large variety of flowers and the cranes that take up residence in the garden, it is one of the premiere relaxation and nature spots in Okayama.
As if I needed even more reasons to visit Okayama!
"Life, for ever dying to be born afresh, for ever young and eager, will presently stand upon this earth as upon a footstool, and stretch out its realm amidst the stars."
