Japan!!!

If you follow me on any kind of social media (and if you don’t why not?!) you’ll know that I was recently in Japan. It was an amazing trip.  My first trip to the Far East. I have been a bit obsessed with Japan since I was a teenager and can’t quite remember why I hadn’t been there before. It didn’t let me down. It was an amazing experience. Overwhelming in every sense and in a good way. I obviously took lots of pictures and a going to share some of them with you over the next week or so. I hope you enjoy hearing about my impressions of Japan.

We stayed in for 3 days in Osaka and 3 days in Tokyo.  My BF was there for business and I was there for pleasure.

In this post I thought I’d share some general photos and in the next posts I’ll share more specific things that I did or saw.

There was a lot of advertising everywhere

The ubiquitous puffer fish

Lots of people play Pachinko, the noise and the light in there was oppressive (and that was from the outside, I can’t imagine what it was like inside). I don’t know anyone could concentrate on anything

That’s it for now watch out for the next post.
