Sakura Season 📷

April 5, 2019

I’ve literally visited Japan dozens of times over the last few years, but never in April. Now that I live in Tokyo, I was finally able to experience the cherry blossom frenzy at Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑) firsthand.

First Time on the Hokuriku Shinkansen 📷

April 1, 2019

We took the Hokuriku Shinkansen to Karuizawa for a few days of R&R last week. Since we usually take the Tokaido Shinkansen, we decided to splurge for Gran Class this time around. The seats were very comfortable, and the cabin resembled that of an airplane–definitely a step up from our usual Green Car experience. It’s a shame that the journey to Karuizawa only lasted an hour.

Modes of Transport 📷

March 18, 2019

I’m sort of a train nerd, so I probably have a million Shinkansen photos on my iPhone. Now, I have a million and one. I’m really happy with how this one turned out. In addition to the N700 Series Shinkansen, I managed to get both the classic Tokyo taxi and Toyota’s new model in the same frame.

She’s been to the summit, but I haven’t–hoping to change that next year.
