Finally got around to posting about my trip to Japan earlier this year. I thought I’d finish off with a bunch of random shots taken while we travelled from destination to destination.
Japan is such a beautiful country with so much to offer for everyone. There are big bustling cities filled with people and organised chaos, there are shrines and gardens offering peace and a place to think, and there’s everything else in-between. Although my family and I visited many places during our two week holiday, I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface. Japan is such a welcoming place and it’s no wonder that people I know who have been always go back again.
The thing people rarely tell you about travelling is just how tiring it actually is. Perhaps that’s our fault though. In an effort to see as much as possible, we flitted from place to place almost daily which eventually wore us down.
But the travelling was worth it. We saw so many sights in Japan and ate so much delicious food! And now we have all these wonderful memories we can fondly recall. I really like how The Parents still talk about places we went to with a big smile on their faces. My personal favourites were seeing all the cherry blossoms in Ueno Park in Tokyo, visiting Arashiyama and staying at the amazing hot spring hotel, feeding the deer in Nara Park, and having dinner at Wakkoqu and at Akasaka Tantei.
Our family trip in Japan was amazing and I’m so grateful we were finally able to visit and had the help of my clever Younger Sister to take us around. Japan, you were awesome! And I hope I will see you again one day. Sayonara for now!
