Exploring Japan

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.

Inside Tokyo Tower’s main deck.

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.

Changing Prefectures
I has the opportunity to leave Tokyo to spend a day in Kyoto.

A Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama.

Kimono Forest.

Fushimi Inari-taisha, a shrine of the god Inari.

The Rock Garden at Ryoanji Temple.

Kyoto Tower — day and night.
