Welcome to Japan

After a long flight and navigating the Narita airport, we are currently on the train headed to the Shinjuku neighborhood in Tokyo. It’s about 3 am in Albuquerque but we’re pushing on! Once we freshen up, we’ll head out to the Golden Gai area for some food and drinks!


my crappy sunset photo on the train… more to come!


tight quarters in Shinjuku



A dream coming true

I have not posted on my blog in forever… But I’m excited to announce that I will finally be heading to Japan at the end of March! My husband and I will spend 4 days in Tokyo, 2 days in Kyoto, and 2 days in Osaka. I’m beyond ecstatic!

We are using Airbnb for lodging (talk about a budget saver!) and staying in an onsen ryokan near Kyoto. Plenty of planning was done using Pinterest, watching documentaries, and of course perusing plenty of travel sites!

I am going to try my best to post some pictures and thoughts on this blog during my trip. If not then, I will after we get back!
