Japan has always been a country I would love to visit ever since I was a kid. My parents have been to Japan several times, and they often talk in Nihonggo whenever they don’t want us to understand what they’re talking about.
I know a few Nihonggo phrases and have learned more when I was in college due to Foreign Language subject. I have also learned how to write and read Hiragana & Katakana —Japanese alphabet.
Fast forward to the present, last December 20, John and I went to Japan for a 19-day vacation. We planned on spending the holidays outside the Philippines with just the two of us.
Some will say that 19 days is too long already but planning out our day-to-day made me feel like 19 days is not enough to visit all the places we want to go and do all the activities we want.
We have visited 7 prefectures in all transferring from one city to another (Yep! with three large luggage and 2 small luggage). From Tokyo to Hakone, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Shiga, Hiroshima…
For now, enjoy this 2-minute teaser of our Japan tour! It’s a compilation of selected videos out of 480 videos! It may look fast with not much details because I’ll be posting separate videos of each city and separate blogs for each prefecture so I can share a more detailed itinerary for each city.
Here’s a summary of our 19 days! I’ll go into details of our itinerary in separate blogs/vlogs.
