Japan Diaries 2014

Page

In December of 2014 I began a one-month trip to Tokyo, Japan to visit my fiancé and the land that I have fallen in love with. It was my last year of grad school, and therefore the longest holiday I’d be able to take in a long while. My fiance was living and working in Tokyo, providing a place for me to stay without paying for a hotel. Thus, I decided to make the most of it and took a whole month in the middle of writing my thesis to visit Japan.

When I returned, I started blogging about my adventures, one day at a time. Between finishing grad school, getting married, and moving across the US, it’s taken me over 7 months (and counting) to blog about my trip, but through it I have been able to relive a memorable holiday.

Here are all the posts about my trip, organized for you, Dear Reader, in chronological order. Feel free to read in any order you wish! I hope you can vicariously explore Japan through my Japan Diaries!
