The Japan Trip

IMG_1651

Well single reader, after three weeks in Japan, I’m back at my home base tucked high in the Colorado Rockies. Japan was everything I thought it would be. At times it was totally beautiful, 100% enchanting, incredibly fascinating, and so, so rewarding. But it was also often very ugly, extremely disorienting, absolutely exhausting, and completely challenging.

Overall I’d say Japan was full of surprises. And if I had to describe the place in one phrase, I’d have to go with sensory overload.

I hope you’ll be patient with me as I organize my thoughts and feelings here on this blog. To be honest I’m struggling a little bit to come to terms with everything Japan is and how I was able to experience it.

Over the course of our journey, we visited Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Nara, Kinosaki, and Hakone. Consider the following photos a preview to the more detailed posts to come.

Until then!
