I've recently taken a long trip to Japan, I wish to share some of my photography and story with everyone here. While I am not the greatest photographer, I hope you can enjoy all the same! :)
I arrived in Tokyo at night, I was equal parts excited, lost, happy, and jet-lagged. There had been a miscalculation because of time zones and I had nowhere to stay the first night...
I ducked into the first capsule hotel I could find on google maps, it was small (as to be expected) but to my disappointment, it was also a little more pricey then I was expecting, around ¥3,500 or ~$35 USD. But I was exhausted so it would have to do.
The next morning, I went up to Ueno, where I would be staying for the next few nights, dropped off my luggage and went straight out to explore.
This was my first time to Japan and even stupid little things, like the every-present vending machines were a wonder to me.
Ueno has a large market street, where you can find pretty much anything.
and I mean ANYTHING
I met up with a pen-pal that I had been friends with for a while now and went and explored Ueno Park
After a long day, we said our goodbyes and I saw her off to her train and I headed back to to my hotel for the night.
-End of day 1-
I hope you enjoyed it, While I won't be doing a dedicated post for every day of the trip (I was there for 3 months after all) I will be trying to post at lease every one or two days, so I hope you come along with me and experience my trip too!
Thanks for checking it out! :)
