Trip Highlights

We wanted to experience something quite different from what we've discovered so far and decided to go to Japan for our Honeymoon. 

Everyday we've been amazed by the contrast between the most modern, crowded and busiest city in the world, extravagance, latest innovations and the traditions, temples, esthetic details and Japanese discretion.

Sumos, Ramen, Temples, Buddhism, Sushis, Well-Organised, Shintoism, electric toilets, Innovation, Mangas, Geisha, these are just a few words that come to me when thinking of Japan.  

 

There is so much to discover and 3 weeks is definitely not enough to fully understand a culture so different from our French-Australian ones.
