So.... I've finally gotten around to going through more of my photos from Japan. I've compiled together our Tokyo based images - sorry, it's long. Looking back on these images two months after being there reminds me of how much I loved our trip over there. It was my first trip and definitely won't be my last. There are so many things about Japan that I miss with the main one being the food. I was born in Japan, my parents were working there at the time, so naturally I grew up with a love for Japanese food. My parents would make soba noodles, mochi, sushi, sashimi and onigiri so food was no stranger. The efficiency of the trains was insane and everything was so damn cute and minimal - I just wanted to take everything home.

A much as I love Japan, I'm not sure if I would live there. The one thing that made me sad was the work culture. We took the metro pretty much everywhere, with the majority of it being in peak hour, and it was just packed with salary men and women all falling asleep on the train - even on Saturdays. I really don't know how they do it over there. 

One thing Ben and I did take notice of was how the Japanese pick something that they love and just master it, whether this be coffee, sushi, gardening, anything really. They all take pride in what they do and become amazing at it. That is definitely something that I want to aspire to. - finding and doing something that I love and being the biggest boss lady at it. I'm still yet to figure that out, but I think I'm close.

Anyway, on a lighter note, enjoy the images! X
