For this post, I would like to take some time and appreciate what Japan has to offer. So, I will take you on a journey to some of the places I’ve explored while studying abroad in Japan.
This is the first place I visited — Okunitama Shrine in Tokyo.
Inokashira Park in Kichijoji.
Asahi TV a famous TV station in Japan
Tokyo Tower seen three different ways. In the daylight it looks like the first picture. The middle picture is how it’s lit on nights with a full moon. At 10 p.m. on full moon nights, and all night on an average day, it looks like the third picture.

A traditional wedding at a temple in Shinjuku
A festival I encountered while roaming the streets in Ochanomizu.
A performance I stumbled upon while walking in a train station.
Mermaid Lagoon at Tokyo Disney Sea.
Another massive tower in Tokyo, Tokyo Skytree.
Sensōji, a Temple in Asakusa.
The sakura came early this year so I didn’t really get to see much of it, but these are some other flowers I found.
I has the opportunity to leave Tokyo to spend a day in Kyoto.
A Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama.
Fushimi Inari-taisha, a shrine of the god Inari.
The Rock Garden at Ryoanji Temple.
Kyoto Tower — day and night.
