A trip to Japan came highly recommended by some of my dear friends and they were so right, we loved it.We loved that Tokyo being a busy shiny metropolis had ancient treasures hidden between highrises and billboards. We loved that only 1 hour from Tokyo by express train we arrived at a beautiful spa town called Hakone in the mountains.

We loved being in Kyoto which is surrounded by breathtaking nature and is full of temples and ancient areas with old wooden houses and pretty girls in kimonos. We loved the efficiency, the punctuality and the kind and helpful Japanese people.
