No matter how much time I’ve already spent there,
I’m very excited about our upcoming trip to Japan!
Being immersed in the Japanese culture is such an
amazing experience – so different from the
day-to-day experience of living in North America –
and I have tried to capture that experience in my
I would like to share my experiences with this
unbelievably rich culture with you in much more
detail and introduce you to the wonderful Japanese
people, their food and their culture.
Each one will be a little slice of what it is like
to be on one of our trips – not an itinerary …
that’s boring. Each one will be a day in-the-life,
what it is actually like to be there … and we
will write it in a way that you can see it, feel
it and taste it … it will be the next best thing
to being there.

favourite places to visit … Japan.

the surface and figuring out who the people are,
what makes them tick, what their national identity
My experience of Japan during cherry blossom
season revealed so much of the Japanese people,
culture, and tradition. So I would like to share
my journal entries – my adventure – with you so
you too can get a taste.
I invite you to live a day in the life in Japan
through each of my blog entries. Each email will be a
little vacation for you – a glimpse into my travel
journal that will whisk you away from your workday
… to a slice of Japan during the spring, during
the cherry blossoms.
-I’ll tell you how I always knew I would travel to
Japan some day … it was destiny —
AND how I got over my biggest FEAR in the first
hour of the first day there !
