I got back from Japan two days ago, and am still living in a bubble of disbelief. Japan is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever travelled to, with temples, shrines, greenery, and modern landscapes all within a tightly enclosed city.
During our week and a half trip, my family and I stayed in Tokyo. We ventured out of Tokyo to smaller towns, including one that borders on the edge of Mount Fuji (spoiler: it was so cloudy we couldn’t even see Fuji’s base), but for the majority of our stay, we ended up in the hustle and bustle of one of the most populated cities in the world.
I took a lot of photos. Unfortunately, not as many as I would like thanks to my inexperience with my DSLR camera and some strange issues with my SD card. However, I have more than enough photos and experiences to supply me with a ton of content for Fung Shui (it’s a bit overwhelming to be honest). For now though, here’s some of my favourite photos from our first day in Japan!
Of course, our first stop in Tokyo was Tsukiji Fish Market. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but I can happily say that I could go and eat at Tsukiji every day. After we bloated our bellies, we headed over to Hamarikyu Gardens which is only about a 10 minute walk away from Tsukiji. Keep in mind that the below photos are only from half of our first day in Japan – we still went to Senso-Ji Temple and Ginza afterwards!
