Time To Travel To Learn About Something

Taking Some Time To Travel To Learn About Something New!

Taking some time to travel to learn about something new. That was most of my July this year. I wanted to go someplace far this time and Tokyo has been calling me for a while now. I left my “big girl” camera at home and just went, and just traveled, with no real solid agenda.

Time To Travel To Learn About Something New

Time To Travel To Learn About Something, I spent days wandering the streets in Shinjuku…Kabukicho, Akihabara, Harajuku, Kappabashi Street, Asakusa to name a few. Buildings on top of buildings on top of skyscrapers. It was pure magic.

I could not get over how polite and clean this city is. It’s like roaming 100 years into the future but on another planet. The people were so kind, and I was in awe of how massive Tokyo really is with its 38 million people and 23 unique wards. The streets and subways seemed to never end.

I spent some time in the quaint neighborhood of Minamiaoyama and enjoyed some teppanyaki, karaoke’d the night away in Roppongi, and couldn’t tell you how many times I walked up and down the tiny alley of Omoide Yokocho. A small narrow lane filled with 60+ open-fronted hole-in-the-wall restaurants all serving up sizzling food and things you’ve never even seen before. So much history in that small space.

I left Tokyo and headed to Kyoto which is about two hours via the Shinkansen bullet train. Stayed and spent most of my time in the Gion district. Shrine after shrine, it never got old. If I had to say one thing that inspires me and keeps me motivated, it’s travel. Arigato Japan!
