In May 2023, I embarked on a thriving journey through Japan, spanning four immersive weeks that etched memories I will always cherish. Navigating through the vibrant pulse of bustling metropolises like Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima, I discovered the beating heart of modernity intertwined with a harmonious way of life deeply rooted in nature.

Yet, it was in the quieter, lesser-known corners where the essence of Japan truly unfolded before me. In the quaint streets of Shiroishi, time seemed to dance gracefully, each step revealing layers of history and culture. And in the serene charm of Onomichi, I found tranquillity amidst the passionate lifestyle of the young locals.

Whether grand or modest, each destination in Japan captured a piece of my heart. Every moment woven into my journey I have deepened my love for this captivating country, from the towering skyscrapers to the winding, narrow streets of peaceful silence.
