Girl's Trip to Tokyo

My trip to Japan last November was life-changing to say the least. Japan was on the very top of my bucket list of places to hit, and I am so happy to report it did not disappoint in the slightest. No amount of pictures, literature, or videos can fully prepare you for the colorful, unique culture of Japan. However, I wanted to share some of the highlights of my trip in case you are planning a trip. I can't wait to return - there's so much I left untouched.

 

Authentically,

Allyson
