JAPANESE JOURNEY: FIRST STOP, TOKYO.

Japan has been on our travel wish-list for years! We've always been extremely curious and intrigued by the Japanese culture, lifestyle and customs. 

At the beginning of this year we decided it was time to see Asia, so we booked our tickets for August. Our countdown flew by, (filled with excitement) and before we knew it, we were on our way to explore Japan! 

Our Journey began in TOKYO. We stepped off of the plane and were overwhelmed with the colors and sights that greeted us. The horizon was calm and clean, the skyline was pure and Tokyo revealed itself through our taxi's windows. 

We spent a week exploring Shinjuku, Shibuya, Omotesando, Roppongi, Harajuku, Ginza & Asakusa. After a week full of trying new foods, exploring new places and having loads of adventures, we concluded that Tokyo was simply fantastic. It was fun and inspiring but also had some exceptionally unique aspects which were full of surprises. 

You can get a taste of our Tokyo trip from our photos below.
