Growing up, I always had an appreciation for Japanese culture. It is vastly different from what we are use to in the U.S., but always seemed normal because it was all I had known aside from the typical “American” life. However while I’m in the U.S., I am limited in how much of Japanese culture I can truly experience from afar. So I thought to myself, might as well take that leap of faith, move half way across the globe and give myself the chance to fully experience the culture I have grown up loving so much.
Here is a video from a couple months ago where I went through the things I was most looking forward to experience in Tokyo!
