Welcome to a week of Japan!
I just spent TWO weeks in Japan, but I thought it would be fun to share my favorite 7 photos over the next 7 days. Regular readers of the blog know that I jump randomly around the world with my daily posts to keep it fresh, but I thought I would mix it up a little! I had such an amazing time there, and I’m excited to share it with you.
Daily Photo – A Week of Japan, Starting with Shirakawa-go!
Could this be a more perfect little fairy tale snowy village? I’ve been to Japan about eight times, but I’ve never ventured way out into the mountains in the winter. Now it’s one of my new favorite things! Before the trip, I identified five different new towns to visit. It wasn’t very easy to get to these places. It basically required me to master the rail and bus system of Japan. That’s not the easiest thing in the world, especially because as you get out of the main cities, no one speaks English and none of the signs are in English. I made more than a few mistakes, but now I’ve completely mastered the system! This is exciting because it means I can go absolutely anywhere in Japan with no help! Now that I’ve mastered it, I’m hankerin’ to go back!
