I can’t believe I’m actually here now! Japan has been on my travel wish-list for ages and to think that I had my first fresh sushi and tempura today makes me want to jump up high in the air. Japan is something magical. The contrast between high-tech electronics and following old traditions makes this such a special destination.
I will be here for about 18 days and will be traveling by train to Tokyo, Nikko, Hirosaki (for the last chance to view the cherry blossom of 2015), Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. As always, my boyfriend Mark is here with me 🙂 We’ll be staying a little longer in the bigger cities, but I’m sure we’ll really have to stop ourselves from rushing and slow ourselves down to enjoy everything this country has to offer.
Since there is so much to see in each of these cities, is there anything you guys really feel is a must do? Would love to hear from you in the comments below. Thanks!
