  1. Thanks for the nomination! ❤ 🙂

    I would love to visit Japan one day too! Everyone who goes there always says it's worthwhile and just beyond amazing – the culture shock and everything.
    Your upcoming travel plans sound great – slightly jealous! Can't wait to hear how it goes. 🙂

    • I know most people recommend going to Japan in the spring for cherry blossom season, but I definitely want to go in the autumn because the landscape colors just look stunning in all the pictures I’ve seen! Do you know which parts of Japan you would like to explore?

      • Tokyo is an obvious choice but I would also love to visit the other regions where you can get a bit more scenery and non-city views, but still experience a full culture shock. Either Hokkaido, Kyoto or Osaka look stunning and colourful. 🙂

        I agree. I’m not really that much of a Spring/Summer person myself so I think going Autumn would be better although I think I wouldn’t mind too much because it’s Japan after all!
