I think i'm turning Japanese ^__^

Updated: Apr 22

I think I’m turning Japanese! WOW what can I say about Japan besides how amazing it is. I have now been to Japan 3 TIMES, and every time is always better than the last. Before I dive in please look at some pictures from my visits there.

Of course the most important about visiting Japan is the food. Everyone wants to know what to eat when they visit. There are a ton of things that Japan as to offer, but you definitely have to keep an open mind especially if you are not familiar with their culture. Below you can find some of the things my wife and I really enjoyed eating during our stay.









So this picture below is a diagram of the main dishes Japan usually promotes.


Next up is the fashion! They have some of the most grailed stores here in Tokyo. For me, being a fashion enthusiast, every time I visit I am instantly inspired by the various fashion trends Japan always incorporates. For anyone into fashion this is a MUST SEE to gain inspiration.



The next few pictures were taken from the Instagram page @TokyoFashion. Please check them out to see interesting combinations from the streets of Japan.







Lastly, is the culture of Japan. From the anime to the technology as well as the history, Japan gives you so much to offer and really take in and enjoy. The next few pictures you will see me discuss different attractions my wife and I were able to experience.












The next pictures were not taken by me but are other attractions also in Japan that offer an amazing experience.
