Arigato Gozaimas Japan

Japan, like traveling inside a video game.


We’ve been in Japan a few weeks now, and its a world of extremes.

While its not as technologically insane as I thought it would be, nothing here is done lightly – Sweet, Salty, Fried, Crowded, Heated, Busy, Trains, Cleanliness, Funny English, Rules, Temples, the list goes on – everything is a big deal.

Stares of astonishment as we don’t wait for pedestrian lights, pay for the metro, or walk on the sidewalk, we’re probably Japans current most notorious criminals, and definitely the tallest.

Some of the journey so far..

Vending Machine Goodness

Take-a-shitta St..

Pickled Squid

“Eating here is like a Kinder Surprise, you never know what your going to get.” – Tilly

Stewed something

Supermarket Sushi

Nara – Ohh Deer..

Hakone Region

Sulfur Mine

Finally, something without rice – Yakiniku (table BBQ)

Nikko – So much snow.

Washitsu – Traditional Japanese Room

Onsen – Traditional Japanese Bath

More to come..
