We Are Back From Japan! Part 1

Posted on 05 May 2017

Do You Miss Us?

We are back from our photoshoot in Japan. We went to Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Osaka. Japan is a lovely place and we highly recommend people who have not visited to travel there. Although it is expensive, it is worth the experience.

Things To Do In Japan

Whether you enjoy sight seeing, hiking, or trying new dishes, we have some recommendations on where to go and what to eat. In this part 1 of our blog, we will talk about places you should definitely go. Our next blog will be about places to eat and snack on.

Where To Go?

There are many shrines and temples in Japan that are uniquely different from each other. You won't be bored and tell yourself, "You seen one, you seen them all." This is not the case.

Fushimi Inari Shrine

One place we highly recommend is the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. Walking the bright red/orange torii path can be exhausting; however, it is worth the hike. It is such a beautiful sight to see and there is no place like it. The Inari Shrine is the Japanese kami of foxes, of fertility, rice, tea and sake, of agriculture and industry, of general prosperity and worldly success, and one of the principal kami of Shinto.

Nara Park (Deer Park) and Itsukushima (Deer Island)
We couldn't get enough of the cute deers in Japan. When you bow to them, they bow back to you. However, most young deers have not learned this yet. An easy method to find a mature deer is if their antlers were cut down. You get to feed crackers to the deers at Nara Park for 500 yen. It might seem a bit pricey for a few crackers, but it is totally worth being swarmed by beautiful cuddly monsters.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial

In Hiroshima, there is the Genbaku Dome or the Atomic Bomb Dome. This is the last building standing from the Hiroshima bombing. It was amazing to see and it makes you think about what happened during that time. The struggles and hardships people had to endure; not only in Japan, but all over the world.

In part 2 of our next blog, we will continue to talk about places to go in Japan. Make sure to follow us and get the juicy details.
