5 Days Tokyo in 15 Pictures

We had the privilege of spending five days in Tokyo as part of our trip. The idea was to meet as many friends and eat as much good food as possible. In this post we want to share a few impressions of our short stay in this fascinating city.

  1. I’m following you guys — first Vietnam (I didn’t blog about it since I’m trying to stay ‘pure’ on my China blog. Maybe a comparison piece at some point), and now I’m heading to Japan for a week at the end of the month. Already I’m having heart failure over the cost of Japan — Tokyo, then Kyoto, then a temple stay at Mt. Koya for us. Hope your trip continues to excite!
