If you’re travelling to the Rugby World Cup, you’re in for a treat. Ireland’s pool matches swing from Yokohama to Shikuoka, Kobe and Fukuoka, with possible knock-out games in Yokahama, Oita and Tokyo. All are universes unto themselves, but barely scratch the surface of a country that feels at once perfectly normal and completely alien. Whether you go now, or later, you’re in for an unforgettable holiday. Japan is what happens when an unstoppable force (the future) meets an immovable object (the past). Pinballing from Hurujuka Lane and hi-tech toilets to pretty palaces and serene Shinto temples can be overwhelming... every visitor has their Bill Murray moments. But that’s half the fun, and everywhere you go, you’ll find friendly people ready to forgive your faux pas. Our advice? Dive in.

Stephanie Angel Lansing State Journal Published 6:14 p.m. UTC May 26, 2018 Is Michigander a state of mind? Or is it a status that can be gained over time through experiences? Native Michiganders probably don’t give these questions much thought. But transplants often are left wondering about their status. In August I'll mark my 20th year in Michigan. There are days I feel like a Mitten veteran and others I'm reminded of my relative rookie status. So where do you rank on the Michigander meter? I asked readers to help me assess my ranking.

The non-negotiables Mackinac Bridge: The Mighty Mac connects Michigan’s two peninsulas. It’s the … [Read more...] about How Michigander are you? Check out this bucket list
