Meggan and I recently got back from a friend's wedding celebration in Japan. Although this trip is not really connected to our around the world trip we couldn't resist sharing a few highlights and photos with you.
Japan is truly an amazing place. The beauty and diversity of the cities to the countryside is only overshadowed by its people. We have never felt so welcome and safe exploring. From a design perspective we loved the contrast between the ancient and the modern. This contrast is present in everything from the architecture, interiors, fashion, and food.
Unfortunately, we only had time for Tokyo and a short bullet train trip to Kyoto. We will be definitely going back to at some point to explore more of the country.
