26 Aug In Motion: Japan
Japan is a country that will overload your senses, but at the same time leave you with a feeling of tranquility. The commotion of the city mixed with the calming nature and reverence is a juxtaposition that just works.
I fell in love with Japan and its culture, and a couple of weeks there definitely left me wanting more. Some of our favorite experiences were the absolute craziness of the Robot Restaurant, attending a traditional tea ceremony, visiting the bamboo gardens, exploring the gardens and shrines, viewing Tokyo from above, wandering around Shibu Onsen, watching the snow monkeys sit in a hot spring, staying in a ryokan, spotting a Geisha, eating conveyor belt sushi, and slurping noodles at Ichiran Ramen.
