I didn't do anything that I said I would do about blogging about Japan. Which was the point of this blog in the first place. I guess the #1 issue for me in Japan was that I actually didn't have enough time to actually sit down and write. People might say that I am over exaggerating but I'm not.
If you didn't know I went to Japan in order to study Japanese, which meant that I had classes that was accompanied by homework and quizzes. And another reason was that I was having too much fun and coming home late every night.
But I am back from Japan and I guess I could give an overall synopsis of the trip with a few pictures in a series of blog posts.
So, I will start the day I arrived, which was in the beginning of July.
After arriving to Osaka after a lay-over in Tokyo, I couldn't think. What I mean is that I was over excited about everything and everything and this was definitely reflected in my first few pictures. The above picture was my view from the car window as I was traveling to Kyoto. I just thought that it was beautiful and totally different from where I lived, which wasn't near the coast.
This is the view from my apartment, isn't it beautiful! I mean seriously, I am in love with views like this. I hate the city view so this is perfect for me. Its home-y but fuckin huge. You really can't see it because there are clouds but, Kyoto is surrounded by beautiful mountain ranges that reminded me of my home-town. Being here, not in a city, I think helped me with my culture-shock. Since I was somewhere that was similar to my home town.
