Time in Takatsuki

We were pretty much excited for our Takatsuki trip! Takatsuki is located in between Kyoto and Osaka and we were excited to be able to explore the Kansai region! It was really nice of our friend Takuto to invite us back to his hometown and host us in his Takatsuki apartment for those 12 days….

Asakusa Exploring

Whenever I think about Asakusa, I remember it as the first area in Tokyo that I visited on my first trip to Japan in 2012. It wasย with my friend Rosi and we were staying at this hostel called Khaosan Tokyo Annex that was located in the Asakusa area. Rosi’s uncle who was staying in Japan…

Time at Meiji Jingu

Sushi at Midori Sushi

While in Japan, our diet mostly consisted of sushi and sashimi. We tried a few sushi places and both me and J would say that Midori Sushi has got to be one of the nicer sushi places that we have been while we were in Japan. We liked the quality of the sushi and J…
