Google Earth is a cool tool and for a
map fiend like myself can become an easy way to wile away hours.
Although links to these locations will be within the daily narratives,
this page is a consolidated place for each of the placemarks, for my
readers' ease of use
To use these, you'll need to have Google Earth installed. Click here to
download the program
and install it. I've checked it out -
it's not evil.
Then, click any of these links. You should get a dialog box that
says something like "Opening Toji Temple.kmz". Select "Open with"
and choose the "Google Earth.kmzfile (default)" option. If you
the program properly installed it should open Google Earth (if not
already running) and fly you to the location indicated.
