Japan: Exploring Tokyo
Nik and I went to Japan last year over Thanksgiving, and I have yet to say a peep about it!! The two week trip to Tokyo and Kyoto provided the perfect escape. We explored both cities to the point that we could barely stand at the end of each day only to repeat our torture the following day.
The vacation was somewhat impulsive in that we purchased our plane tickets just two months ahead of time, and made our final hotel reservation a week before we departed. We made very few concrete plans, and allowed ourselves to wander aimlessly through the cities (stopping frequently at convenient stores to stock up on snacks). Luckily, Nik did activate an international data plan on his phone so that we always knew where we were and could find restaurants while we were out and about. This batch of photos is hopefully the first of many I took, and if you want to see Nik’s account of the adventure on his brand-spanking-newly-designed website, click the link below:
