18 hour flights. 10 days. Rice 3 times a day. And I’d do it all again in an instant.
Spending 10 days in a country where you don’t know the language, the little idiosyncrasies, the culture or quite what you’re going to be doing can be daunting for most people. It wasn’t scary spending 10 days in Japan, it wasn’t odd travelling to places with a dictated itinerary.
What it turned out to be was a 10 day crash course in a culture I could not feel more at home in. Vending Machines everywhere, politeness that puts Britain to shame and some of the most awe inspiring cities in the universe. Loved every minute; there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t want to go back there. Next time there will be more than 10 days in Japan.
