Japan 2016: Nara and Arashiyama

I'm not sure if anyone would even notice, but I just gave my blog a major facelift. Still not quite finished with it yet so I will still be updating a couple more things over the next few days or weeks.

Moving on to the photo diary, these are from our trip to Nara last December. It was crazy cold when we went there so my hands were practically freezing and I had to constantly wipe snot away. Ew. But the place was beautiful. My photos do not give it justice!

Japan 2016: Kyoto

The second stop of our second Japan trip last year was Kyoto, which was a short Shinkansen ride away. We bought the Japan Rail Pass prior to our visit, so we were able to save money on transportation. (We were limited to the JR Lines though, which wasn't much of a problem) Kyoto has got to be my favorite. It has a preserved antiquity to it that I just love. Plus, the hotel we stayed at - Ryokan Kohro, was the absolute best. 

Believe it or not, these we all taken in one day. Public transport is pretty convenient since they have buses that go around all tourist attractions.

Japan 2016: Kobe

Oh dear. I must admit, I should stick to tighter schedules when it comes to posting blogs. A lot has happened since my last post, but my mid-year resolution is to be more active in a lot of things (this blog included). One day I'll come around to revamping the whole blog and go back to posting detailed travel posts, but for now, a photo diary of my trip to Japan last December - January!
