I took so many shots during my Tokyo trip, it took me forever to sort them out and pick the ones for this post. Some of you already followed my trip highlights on Instagram, but others asked me to share pictures of my trip here on the blog.
I absolutely adored Japan. I was expecting it to be magical, but it was more than that. Tokyo is such a unique city, from the bustling and crowded neighborhoods [and when I mean crowded, I mean A LOT of people, like Pre-Christmas shopping malls…] to the zen green spots throughout the city.
In contrast, I was amazed by the beauty of nature, and how calming and relaxing it was to just pause, reflect on things, unplug and literally stop the clock. That’s Tokyo for you, from one street block to another, you get from the mega crowd to a haven of peace.
I also adored the culture, from the food to the traditional costumes spotted at temples and shrines.
My feet and legs were exhausted – according to my Fitbit, I walked more than 20,000 steps a day – but I came back enchanted and eager to go back to show my girls this wonderful country.
