Japan is an amazing country and so different from everything else I have seen before. The fact that lots of Japanese people (even in Tokyo) don’t speak English makes the trip even more special. There are so many occasions where you see yourself communicating via gestures or simply ordering the dishes on the menu that look the best. And I don’t mean the dishes with the best pictures. I am referring to the Japanese letters. There usually are no pictures..

You could just spend two weeks in Tokyo (what we did) and you still wouldn’t be tired of it. Together with London and New York, Tokyo is one of th cities that just never get boring. There is so much to discover and almost impossible to ever run out of new restaurants and places to try.

Also the rest of Japan is incredibly diverse and you could spend months travelling around the country exploring cities, temples, mountains, beaches, incredible food and most importantly the distinct Japanese culture. We only had three weeks in Japan so we spent two weeks in Tokyo, a day in Mount Fuji and the rest in Kyoto and surrounding areas.

For two reasons I am super happy we did it that way instead of spending three weeks exploring the rest of Japan. First, Tokyo is an amazing city and now one of my favourite cities in the world. Second, as some of you may know, by the time we had reached Japan we already had been travelling for many months and had just come from almost three weeks of travelling through the whole of New Zealand.
And I quite like that fact that we discovered an amazing country that I can’t wait to go back to in order to explore even more.

    One of my sons love the country of Japan and loves to visit with his many friends there. He sort of sticks out be 6 feet 4 inches tall. He has brought back wonderful photos of Japan.

    Ever since I read Memoirs of a Geisha I’ve wanted to go to Japan. It just seems so magical.

    Japan is on our bucket list, but we will visit South Korea first (I’m crazy over Korean Novelas). I do agree that two weeks is a good time to enjoy Japan – maybe even two and a half!
