Holy cow! I just have to say Japan was the absolute coolest trip I've ever taken. If you ever get the chance, do it...Without thinking about it. The flight kind of sucks, but it is well worth it. There is something for everyone and there is so much to do and see. We only scratched the surface and are seriously debating going back in February to see more.
I have just some of the pictures that I took while there. My wife actually has the majority of our "good photos" as she is a good photographer. But hey I'll share what I've got.
First and foremost the food is outstanding. I didn't eat anything there that I didn't like.
We have steak that was cooked amazingly by the chef at our table. FYI hibachi is an American thing. The whole show they put on is not a Japanese thing. These guy were all about quality and it was amazing. Then the delicious seshimi or raw fish, and last Ramen! This was the best Ramen ecer. And it was real Ramen. And of course meats on a stick. And squid jerkey ( delicious).
Then we have some sight seeing. The Great Buddha, Akihabara, Sensoji Temple, Tokyo skytree, Ueno Zoo
I totally bought one of the Star Wars figures.
Japan was amazing. Everyone was so nice and pleasant to us. There was little if any litter and it was gorgeous. I can't wait to go back!
