May 2019. Coffee Travels.  250 meters walk from  Miller’s roastery is the Skybus, bus-stop. Often our coffee travels begin here, at the top of Queen Street, waiting with strangers to go to the airport.

Leaving Auckland International Airport at dawn.

Waking to a homemade coffee, 30 hours later, in Ashiya.  This is the base as we travel to two other nearby cities, Kobe and Uji.  Both cities are part of Keihanshin, the massive urban / suburban / industrial, continuum of Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe in Kansai, Japan.

Midday sun touches spring leaves.  Momiji trees at the Byodo-in Temple in Uji.
