    No it's not linked at all. Took me years to get there. It's even less Niseko than your post was "Shiga Kogen".
    Was going to post a Euro shot but must be on paper being 2004 and all, so had to ad lib....over to you Sandy. [​IMG]
    This was a dead giveaway. As it was GN and others would have picked it straight away.
    What the hell it's better than Convo and a decent pic by one of the offspring of one of the the same.

    Lake Taupo with ignminbrite cliffs and the Kaimanawa Ranges viewed from the NW.
    Whole damn lake was just blown away, molten rock forever, cliffs are the start of many cubic km's of spewed out inner earth. Well it wasn't full of water till after.
    Only guessing and it's Sandy's turn anyway.

    No.

    "Ground zero" is right behind me in that shot. That church is the temporary memorial (of sorts) for 911.

    Clue.

    It originally gave it's name to a type of cuisine, before the name was changed from its Anglicised name.

    Well, it was more of a feeling that it didn't look like Japan. Plus the signs in the last pic were only in Kanji (No Katakana).
