Today we're heading back to Japan for an amazing two week adventure. We'll start in the southern island of Kyushu. Here we'll explore Fukuoka for a few days before heading to a mountain onsen ryokan (hot springs inn) for 4 days. Next we'll move up to Osaka for 4 days and then Tokyo for 5. Oh! And for a lot of the time, we'll hopefully be following the sakura blooms! It's been a dream of mine to see cherry blossoms in Japan, so fingers crossed for us.
When people ask me what my favorite place I've traveled to, it's a toss up between Italy and Japan. When we're asked what place has the best food? Japan is ALWAYS the answer. We're looking forward to exploring new places (last time we only did Tokyo and Kyoto) and trying some new foods. We also have a ton of "only in Japan" experiences planned like riding go-carts in the streets of Tokyo, going to a karaoke bar, and enjoying hamani (cherry blossom viewing) with sake and bento boxes.
