Gearing up for Japan

Another Japan trip in the books for summer 2018! Very excited any time I have a trip planned there. It will be in August, originally decided for a Fuji climb, but that’s fallen by the wayside as it’s my girlfriends first trip there and I want to give her a more touristy first time trip. She has many bucket list items for Japan, so I’m very excited to show her around and hopefully make it easy for her. Accommodations are almost all booked up, and then we fill out the days with activities!


I’ve been learning a bit of Japanese, and just discovered a website called which links up language learners with tutors. It seems pretty affordable and I’m quite excited to give it a go! 

Here’s an image from my last time in Japan, from Shinjuku!
