japan adventure

Morning green tea

I spent ten days in the beautiful country of Japan last November and visited four different cities, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hakone. Highlights of the trip (besides all the delicious food we ate) were the Tsukiji fish market, eating chestnuts and drinking hot milk tea by the river in Arashiyama, seeing the maple leaves turn red, convenience store trips, shopping in Daikanyama, meeting locals, and my absolute favorite, soaking in the onsen (hot spring). I feel like I barely scratched the surface of Japan and all it's rich culture and can't wait to go back again.
