Ten Days in Japan: From Lodging Our Visa Applications to Finishing 14 Plates of Sushi in One Seating

Our trip to Japan was filled with utter delights because each day was allotted for discoveries. Everything in the country is incredibly efficient (I haven’t seen toilets so innovative), but there’s no air of snootiness. It's a must to experience this culture of graciousness once in your life.

Dreaming of Kyoto

Kyoto is the part of our Japan trip that we have enjoyed most. It’s remarkable how they were able to preserve the charm of the temples, alleys, and houses. I regret that we only stayed here for a night. We would have extended our stay in a heartbeat if our hotels for the succeeding parts of the trip weren’t paid for already. If it's your first time, please spend a couple of days here!

Oh Deer! A Day in Nara

What’s not to love about Nara? Everything about it exudes calmness – even the deer that would sometimes chase you for the famous shika sembei biscuit. Japan’s efficient railway services make it easy to reach Nara from Kyoto and Osaka.
