Last November, right before Thailand, B’s family and I went to Japan. Since it’s fairly expensive and Thailand is way cheaper, we only stayed for a few days. The women in Japan definitely knew how to dress – it was rainy and cold, but they would still rock the skirts, tights, and super cute knee-high boots…. I think my head swiveled just as much as B’s, though I was mostly ogling all the cute boot styles. Everyone was really nice and hospitable, and despite it being fairly crowded, the sites were pretty cool to see in Tokyo:
To be honest, I’m glad I experienced Japan, but I don’t think I would ever go back. I’m not much of a city girl, and the meal portions are so tiny for the price. We stayed at a hotel that had a really good international breakfast buffet, so we would load up on that and mostly snack until dinner time. B’s family isn’t very adventurous when it comes to cuisine, so we mostly stuck to American foods (though they did try out a noodle house upon my request, where they had the American food options there haha). I did like all the efficient aspects of Japan – as soon as I stepped in the shower, the water was instantaneously the temperature I wanted it to be, and if you required anything from the waitress, you can just press a button rather than have to flag her down. Overall it was a great experience!
