This post is a submission to TripBase’s My 7 Links initiative after receiving nomination from Loneleeplanet to participate. The process is simple. Nominated bloggers identify posts that meet seven specified criteria and share them with readers. In turn I have the opportunity to nominate 5 bloggers, listed at the bottom of this post, to participate.
Most beautiful post
It’s so hard to think of my most beautiful post – I don’t think I am vain enough to say any of them are particularly beautiful! But, if I have to choose one, I will choose: Harajuku Paparazzi…. Why? Because those Harajuku girls are sooooo beautiful!
Most popular post
Up until March, my most popular post was always Honen Matsuri (a PG rated post…). However, the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster changed that. My most popular post (at around 15,500 hits) is now: March 2011 Earthquake & Tsunami in Japan.
Most controversial post
Sparked by a comment on a previous post about going to the immigration office, my most controversial post has to be: Should Japanese speak English in Japan?.
Most helpful post
I wrote a post about getting “the pill” in Japan, which turned out to be quite helpful to a number of ladies.
A post whose success surprised you
I wrote what I thought was a pretty ordinary post about a trip to Kanzaji (Kanzanji: A big Buddha, a beautiful lake, and a lot of walking!), and for some reason it got “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress. It ended up getting over 1200 hits, which was very surprising!
A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
I wrote this post in part to promote tourism in Nikko, so I feel it needs as much attention as it can get: Visit Nikko!
The post that you are most proud of
Lions, and tigers and bears… and Fuji-san! Oh, my!: I’m most proud of this post because of one particular picture. It might not be the best post I’ve ever written, but man am I proud of that elephant in front of Mount Fuji!
And now to hand the baton over to five more nominees to participate in TripBase’s My 7 Links initiative:
