Traveled to Japan in June 2016 to visit family and spend 2 weeks away from work. It’s been more than a decade since I last visited Japan (too young to remember anything) so I recorded this diary to preserve the memories and experiences!
Got to revisit a lot of places from my youth as well as locations that I’ve only ever seen in Animes and TV shows. I could never really get used to driving on the left side of the road either. My secret favorite place we saw was Akihabara, purely from a media/figurine perspective; was only there for a couple hours, unfortunately.
Thanks to both the Ueno and Kawaguchi families (my cousins!) for their hospitality during our stay! We hope to visit again soon and you are always welcome to visit America!
