Last year we had the most amazing time visiting Japan but we were sad that we had just missed the cherry blossoms by one week! We decided to go again this year with some friends in search for the beautiful sakura trees and let me tell you how magical they were!!! As amazing as my husband photographer is, our photos don’t even compare to the beautiful experience when you are there among the gorgeous, blossoming trees. I highly recommend a visit to Japan to experience this at least once in your life and to eat the most delicious ramen too ;).
I wanted to share some photos from our trip, some of which you might have caught on my Instagram. My wonderful #instagramhusband obliged as I made him row the boat and take my photos at the same time. Love you baby!
Tokyo has always fascinated me and been on my “I-need-to-go-to” places. So when the hubs asked me randomly one day in early April if I wanted to go to D.C. to see cherry blossoms, I replied “lets just go to Japan!”. I found a great deal on Singapore Airlines and we booked our tickets 2 weeks before our travel. It was spontaneous but when you are busy as we are and find a window of available time, you take it. And let me just say I’m so glad we did! Japan was amazing! We fell in love with the culture and food. There were so many amazing sites to see and everyone we met (for the most part) were kind, respectful and helpful. We traveled everywhere conveniently by train (why can’t the States be more like this?!) and we were able to visit 5 cities including Tokyo and Kyoto. We unfortunately caught the tail end of the cherry blossoms so we weren’t able to experience it in full bloom. Nevertheless it was still a beautiful site to see and I was lucky enough to be traveling with my best friend/love-of-my-life/photographer.
