Japan, Part I: Tokyo

Just a year ago we spent one week in Japan. While not nearly enough time to explore at a leisurely rate or to cover more than two cities, I highlighted Japan as one of my most memorable trips when I launched this blog.

We spent 4 nights and 3 days in Tokyo before spending another 3 nights and 3 days in Kyoto. I am breaking the trip into two parts since there is so much to share!

First up, Tokyo!

Highlights from Tokyo:

Sushi on the go snacks.

When attempting to use a vending machine to purchase iced tea but received hot milk tea. This happened multiple times.

Question: What’s the most memorable thing you did in Tokyo?
