Epic Tohoku Trip

Last week I spent 8 days traveling around the Tohoku and Hokuriku regions. I hit up 4 new prefectures (5 if you include traveling 2+ hours through Akita on a train)- Miyagi, Iwate, Yamagata, and Niigata. The land up there is beautiful and vast. Trains and buses are infrequent, the food is simpler. But it was a truly lovely place, and I can see why people choose to live there.

Three days in Miyazaki

Until recently, Miyazaki was the one prefecture in Kyushu I'd yet to visit. My lovely Aussie friend Julia wanted to see some sights along the coast, so I joined her for a long-weekend trip. For the most part, the weather was hot and clear, until the end of our last major sightseeing day. Every day, great food was had. A fantastic getaway!

First post in ages... Hanami pics!

Hello to anyone who reads this blog! I'm sorry I haven't posted in... what, over a year now? Yikes! I've pretty much just been lazy. But recently I've had some lovely new experiences and taken some nice photos, which I would like to share with you.

Here are some pictures from hanami (flower-viewing) this year!
