For a long weekend, a couple of friends and I took a weekend trip to Nikko, Japan, a fairly rural town a couple hours outside of Tokyo! It was so refreshing to escape the city for a little bit and see the beautiful landscape Nikko has to offer. It was nice to take a break from the constant hustle and stimulation in Tokyo. Once the trip was over, I felt ready to return and get back to my academics at Temple. Sometimes all you need is a bit of time to decompress in a calming environment, and that was something that Nikko was able to provide.
