Travel Blog #5 – JAPAN!


Of the many islands, Japan has got to be one of my favourites. There are many things I love about this country: food, people, history, landscape and food (I know food was put down twice). But each time I go, I discover another thing I love about this glorious city. This time, it was the drinking culture.

This trip included 2 days in Osaka, followed by a wonderful 3-4 hour bullet train ride to Tokyo, where my friend and I stayed for another 4 days. What a fabulous trip it was. In short, it was a trip to meet an old friend, make new ones, and to stuff my face full of delicious foods. Unfortunately, I am not a very good writer, but I consider myself an adequate photographer, so here are some of the reasons why you should go to Japan, in order of awesomeness.

First up is the drinking.

Sightseeing should now finish off the job.

However, I should say this. As much as I love Japan, There is no bloody way I would want to ever live there. Strict work environments would be enough to snap me in half. This is why I am so happy to be living in Korea; have all the fun, and only a fraction of the responsibilities.

Until next time,
