The points go to Sharnel for correctly guessing Japan. Tokyo to be specific. (How'd you know?)
We took what just might be the shortest ever trip to Japan last week. We left Thursdy and were back Monday evening. I still feel like garbage thanks to a bug I picked up somewhere along the way (I always seem to get sick on the way back from a trip - compromised immunity maybe? exposure to foreign bacteria?).
We had a fabulous trip. Aside from the incredibly beautiful weather, we were lucky enough to know someone local who was willing to cart our noJapanesespeakingNewYork asses around town. We hit the jackpot!!
Without further ado, a few of my favorite photos from the trip.
Our hotel room had this cool glittery starbust sculpture in the entryway. You all know how much I love glitter right? This seems like something that could be DIY'd pretty easily but I'm not quite sure how. Wouldn't this make a fabulous centerpiece?
Also in the hotel room, the was a branchy mural over the bed. Cute. But what made it even better was the three dimension bird on there. Love this idea for a nursery or studio.
One of my favorite things about Japan is their awesome toilets. This photo says it all.
One strange thing is that there was this weird sleepy looking mustached guy on one of the tv channels ALL.THE.TIME. I have no idea why. It was sort of like a train wreck - gruesome but I could not look away.
Despite glittery sculptures and fun in the loo, we did actually leave our hotel room. Further proof of the great weather we had, we saw Mt Fuji in all its glory. I understand that is somewhat rare as its usually partially hidden by clouds.
At one of the rest stops up there, I learned I should not stand forward or backward facing on the bowl. Good to know.
On that same day trip we saw some other beautiful sights that I have no descriptions for. They were just pretty.
Back in Tokyo, we visited several shrines. We were even fortunate enough to stumble upon a wedding procession.
Pretty sure this is my favorite tree evah!
Our friend was sweet enough to take me to some great stores where I got some fun items I'll show you in another post. And of course we ate and drank our fill.
On our last day we got up early and went over to the Tsujki fish market. Great fun to watch. Lets just say we weren't the only ones there.
All too soon it was time to put our fun on ice and head back home.
We had such a great time, I'm sure we'll be back.
