Welcome to my site! A few years ago, I embarked on my first grand adventure to Japan, choosing to dive in without much preparation, thinking the mystery would add excitement. However, upon arrival, I found myself overwhelmed and missed countless incredible opportunities. Determined not to repeat my mistake, I meticulously planned my next trip, diving deep into research to truly capture the essence of Japan.
