Tokyo, Japan

Japan was beautiful, captivating and extremely different from anything I had experienced before. From the buzzing streets of Shinjuku to the natural wonders of Minoo Park, my girlfriend Jess and I jam-packed our days in Japan with a plethora of sites and experiences.

First up was Tokyo. We stayed in Shinjuku for three nights, exploring the bewildering (in the best way possible) city, Shibuya and surrounding areas.  

The abundance of convenience stores (or Konbinis in Japanese) soon became our best friend: a go-to spot for a cheap breakfast, energy drink or a sneaky vodka beverage. 

Vending machines were also found literally everywhere. They were full of weird and wonderful drinks and ice-creams, and even the occasional range of cigarettes.

Things never seemed to stop in Tokyo. The people kept going and the cacophony of sound continued well into the night. And the train stations were always bustling whether it was early morning or late evening.
