JAPAN

Japan is one the culturally richest, most beautiful and easiest-to-travel countries I have ever been to. Over the five weeks we spent there, we traveled 1500 km from Kyoto to the small island of Amami Oshima and we got to live three weeks in wonderful Tokyo, experiencing an amazing concentrate of history, beauty, culture and lifestyle of this incredible country. 

I hope this website helps you plan a trip that I wish everyone could take at least once in their lifetime. 

I will start by describing the itinerary of our long trip, with a page for each place we visited, and then dedicate a whole section on Tokyo, as it's basically made-up of many cities into one, giant metropolis. I will also provide some general information on trip planning, some practical info (train tickets, car rental, wi-fi, language) and two big sections on accommodation and food. Lastly, I have added a small page on the onsen/sento traditions, which is such a big part of  Japanese culture, and a gallery of the many photos I took during our long month there.
