Japan part 1:
As cliché as it sounds, visiting Japan was No.1 on my list for a long time but the circumstances were never quite right enough to even consider going. Then about 3 weeks ago, the stars aligned and I knew that if I didn’t go, I would regret it for the rest of my life so I went!
It was my first time and I was only there for 9 days. As short as the trip was, I managed to fit in both Tokyo and Kyoto but I feel I barely scratched the surface of either of these two cities. Japan is a magical and weird place but it also felt strangely familiar- maybe because Japanese people and culture have such a presence in Hawaii. In any case, I’ll definitely be going back again!
Above are pics of Tokyo. Will be posting more pics of Kyoto (which I found more photogenic) in the following days…
