Going to Japan!


My friend, his brother and I are going to the Land of the Rising Sun next week. This is the first time that I travel independently so I’ve been preparing our stay for almost a month! I researched everything from buying flight tickets, making hotels reservations, applying for visas, to what clothes to bring, transport methods, and other things to expect while there. You see, we plan on touring all the famous attractions and immerse ourselves in authentic Japanese culture and lifestyle.

I don’t want to divulge more detail, partly because I don’t have time, but primarily because I want to keep it a surprise until I get back :)
