    How often do you visit Japan? Kyoto is not very far from here.
    It was some time ago now, last time was for my teacher's dojo's 50th anniversary in the summer of 2015, so I spent midsummer in Japan, not the typical Swedish way to celebrate midsummer.
    In general I think I am in Japan 1-2 times every two years or so, sometimes it is a bit more often and sometimes there has been some more time between the travels.

    Been to Osaka relatively often as well, since it is so close from Kyoto. We also had the World Taikai there in 2013 and in 1993.
