Thanks! This was a bit of stand-off - he's a big fella!

Thanks for the ID Reza Hashemizadeh! Around 40 people die every year of anaphylactic shock having been stung by the Japanese giant hornet - I won't get so close next time!

I wonder if this is a variant of the wasp spider (長黄金蜘蛛)
argiope bruennichi. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the IDs! I lived cheek by jowl with these guys in a very old apartment in the Japanese countryside - never knew what they were called, though!

Thanks for the ID and sorry for the terrible photo - iPhone struggles with macro shots...

I don't know if I'd get much sleep knowing that these were lurking in the shadows at my hotel!

Thanks, Liam. These birds are quite plentiful now, but I expect them to move on again soon.
