Revisiting Japan, Vol 1

September 28, 2018

It’s been about a year since I went through and edited my photos from our trip to Japan in April 2017. Tonight I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to see all the photos I took that I had forgotten about beyond the ones that I’ve shared online or have as my desktop wallpaper. Definitely a trip down recent memory lane! I love Japan, I can’t wait to go back again. 

A Tokyo cityscape that includes the moat around the Imperial Palace
This is the moat? around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, the first place we walked around after arriving.
A night scene from the Sakae District in Nagoya Japan
On my first night there, after dinner with my friend Taka, Alicia went to sleep at the hotel but I couldn’t do that quite yet, I needed to live it up! So I went for a walk around Sakae in Nagoya. It was so good to be back.
A 3rd floor view of a cityscape in suburban Nagoya Japan
This is the view from the 3rd floor balcony of the first AirBNB we stayed out. Nothing exciting, but this is suburban Japan. This is the setting I lived in for 2 years. I miss it so much!
A view of Toyota City from the Mikawa-Toyota train station platform
We had about a 30 minute wait at the Mikawa-Toyota Train Station. I wandered around the platform and took photos. It’s slightly elevated. This is the view. More suburban Japan.
A street is framed by a gate that is the entrance of a shrine in downtown Nagoya, Japan.
Before we headed out for Kyoto on Day 3, we took a walk around the Nagoya Station with our friend Taka. Not too far away was a little shrine, we hopped in for a short visit.
