Visual Diary: Summer in Japan

My first time travelling to Japan was during a very hot summer in July. I spent 10 days starting in Tokyo – Hokkaido (Sapporo) – Osaka and ended in Kyoto. There were endless things to see and spending only 10 days there was far from enough. One does not simply go to Japan and not have a strong desire to go back, I bet there must be some gigantic magnet placed somewhere in the country. The only reason I am making this as a photo-series and not a blog entry is because I honestly only went to the main touristy places and since we wanted to see as many things as we could, the trip was quite rushed. So much to do & eat, but so little time! Here’s to hoping that one day I get to experience living in this land of amazing food. Someday, somehow 🙂

— Photos below are posted in non-chronological order. All taken by me, unless I am in it, then it would be taken by my fabulous Dad.

Japanese school girls on a field trip to Farm Tomita, Nakafurano (2,5 hours bus ride from Sapporo).
Lavender Ice Cream! When asked by a friend what it tasted like, I responded “It tastes like Lavender!”. To which they responded “I knew you were gonna say that”. Hehehe.
Farm Tomita, Nakafurano, Hokkaido. What a shame the weather was so cloudy!
Lavender hill at Nakafurano-Choei flower field. Costs 400 yen to ride up the hill with a single-chair lift.
