If you’ve been on our Instagram, Twitter or Facebook lately, you’ll probably have noticed that we’ve been to Japan – more specifically, Tokyo and I’ve got to say, this city is everything we’d hoped it would be and more.

Photographs And Postcards... From Tokyo, Japan (13)

The trip came about as something of a last minute whim-after-wine with friends as we saw a good deal and decided we would all head out there.

We all started off in London and some of us headed out to the Spanish Basque Country for a few days (haven’t put photos up from that one yet either – they’re up on our Instagram though), others to China and we all met in Seoul, South Korea (which, by the way, I have just uploaded a similar post with photos from Korea too) before heading out to Japan.

This was one of the most intense, most amazing travel experiences we’ve had and I have so much to tell you about visiting Tokyo but for now, I just wanted to share with you some photos I took over the time we spent in this brilliant (and surprisingly HUGE) Japanese city.

Here they are!

  • These photos are absolutely amazing. Some of them look very editorial too. We might be moving to Japan next year (we’re currently living in Sicily) and this post makes me very excited. Love the cat ears.
