I managed to get most things booked and sorted the weekend we got our visas.
We fly out June 24th to Narita with Al Italia.
So…just over 7 weeks to go!
We have booked to stay in some beautiful places like the Toco Tokyo Hostel below.
We have all the major festivals pencilled into our itinerary, a trek to the summit of Mt.Fuji and volunteer work in Tohoku. Trips to sake factories, lavender fields, temples, lakes, museums and castles.
I can’t wait for all the small things like purikura, Japanese curry and tempura, taking a stroll down Takeshita Dori, hearing ‘irrashimasen’ every time I walk into a shop and all the little train tunes on the metro.
I look forward to meeting new people, learning more about Japan and Japanese culture and having the most epic journey of my life!
