The alarm goes off on Saturday at 4:20 am. Unlike most mornings, I get up without hesitation full of excitement and anticipation for the adventure ahead. All the planning for the past two months is finally coming into effect – I’m on my way to the airport for my first trip to Japan.
The flight from Miami to Chicago goes by in a flash but the long flight that followed is no joke. I get over my flying anxiety and having to be stuck in the middle seat for 13 hours. That flight is actually foreshadowing my upcoming experience in Japan: warmer than I expected, both in weather and hospitality.
I arrive in Tokyo at around 4:00 pm on Sunday with wanderlust overload, although my jetlagged face might say otherwise. I’m ready to take everything in; the city, the food, the people, the fashion, the culture!
Over the next four posts, I will share my Japan experience with you; their love and admiration for food, the unexpected and totally cool things during my stay, and my favorite experiences as a Miami girl in Japan.
I have so many stories to tell and pictures to show that I can’t wait to share with you! This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions that I can address in my upcoming posts. Places to visit, eat, sleep and more…join the club and ask away!
