I miss you Japan!

I miss you Japan!

Its been exactly a year since my husband and myself, along with two good friends, boarded a big plane and flew to Japan for a holiday. So I thought a nice way to celebrate the anniversary of being in such an amazing place is to share with you my favourite moments/places we experienced over there. We loved our time in busy Tokyo, the lights, colour and non stop fun, but I fell inlove with the country when we visited traditional Kyoto. Hope these photos show how amazing and beautiful Japan can be!
