After getting a little acclimatized in Tokyo, this bit of our journey was about taking it all in: the tastes, the scenery, the sudden appearance of maikos in the Gion district, Hiroshima’s dreadful history and the peaceful Itsukushima island with the breathtaking Miyajima shrine… so I’ll let you do the same. 🙂

I used to think I lived in the most exciting city in the world. Then we visited New York… and I still thought London was the real deal. Then we went to Tokyo. Mind blown. There is not enough space and time to explain what and why I liked about it so much without getting lost in the small details (like enjoying the super fast, super punctual trains; the orderly queues everywhere; the amazing food even at the cheapest of places; the nicest people trying to help us out whenever we needed anything at all, etc.), but let’s just say I could really see myself exploring this beautiful country even more in the future. Getting up at 3 in the morning to catch the famous tuna auction at the Tsukiji fish market was worth being tired for days after it; as well as a little trip to the Nippori fabric town (just a piece of advice: leave your travelling companions behind, as you’ll want to have all the time in the world to browse those shops 🙂 ), and looking at Mt Fuji from a hotel’s beautiful garden was one of those rare, unplanned adventures that turn out to be the ones you remember for years to come. Tokyo is an incredible city, but wait until I show you Kyoto… 😉
