ROAD TRIP IN JAPAN, SO MUCH TO SEE, DO AND EAT!

img_3141

Hi there. I came home from dreamy Japan 2 weeks ago today (time flies!). and I know one thing I need more Japan! This was my second time there and this time I traveled with friends an no kids. Which was a great decision, because I could spend all the time I wanted looking at art, cultural sites, indulging on mouth watering Japanese food, hanging out at bars till late and biking Tokyo. All things that would have been very different with a child. I will go with Viola when she’s a little older for sure, that’s a part of the plan. This was hands down one of the best holidays I can remember.

Below are some pictures from our road trip, such an easy way to explore Japan by,- I really recommend it!

I love Japanese cakes, and pretty much had one every day plus brought three boxes with me home. My favorite are Matcha Mochi’s.

Kyoto Ginjaku -Ji Temple and garden was so peaceful and pretty.

This tiny Izakaya is worth a visit if in Tokyo, It’s like a time machine taking you back to 1066 where it opened. I isn’t really a place you want to take out the phone and disturb the 1966 feeling, so this in pretty much my best picture. I will do a more in depth eating guide soon.

JBS in Shibuja with 11.000 curated records.

The Japanese zen gardens like this one at the Ginjaku-Ji Temple are hundreds of years old, and portraits a picture of perfect nature. Every thing is placed with an intention and makes you feel very calm and at peace when you visit them.

In the Onzen (hot spring) spa town of Arima I met this lady who was quite a bit older than she looks here and she made the best fresh Mochies, actually this was my first time trying one of these right from the hot plate.

The Techima art museum by architect Ryue Nishizawa was the best art ‘installation’ of them all I think.

The famous pumpkin by Yajoy Kusama.

Too exited about this all Tofu restaurent in Kyoto.

I was very surprised that Geisha culture still excist in Japan, and it is far far from just an old tradition they do or fun, this is real Geisha’s who has taken a 5 year education which costs hundred and hundreds of US dollars.

The Fushimu Inari Shrine outside of Kyoto is worth the 5km walk where you walk through countless orange gates.

Biking around Tokyo was absolutely the best way to get around! You see so much of the city you won’t see if you take the train and the struggle with finding your way with those trains is close to being a nightmare I think so this was perfect!
