I went to Japan in April of 2019. It had been a dream of mine to travel there, and impulsively (a privilege that does not escape me) I bought a plane ticket to Tokyo. I spent several days in Tokyo before taking a shinkansen to Kyoto. Japan was everything I imagined it to be and much more. I had heard, in one of the many travel videos I watched leading up to my visit, that a persons life can be divided into two parts: before they go to Japan, and after they go to Japan. Though hyperbolic a statement, I can’t help agree. Who I was before I went to Tokyo changed after. My job changed, my perspective changed, and my willingness to go outside my comfort zone changed. Expect a lot of Japan content, even if it’s already way into summer.
