Long time no see! I feel bad for not updating from Japan but we were always on the move and every day went by so quickly that I barely had time to recharge my nekophone. Telling you about the stay in Japan will probably fill up quite some blog entries but starting with some kind of overview will allow me to go through the lived time once more and to sort out my memories. After all two months are a long time and many things we saw and did at the beginning of our travelling already seem far away.
1. Had a really bad cold and no voice at all.. 2. Snow on the second day of our road trip 3. Udon at a Momiji Matsuri 4. Momiji leaves 5. Yummy Indian curry and naan 6. In the subway in Sapporo 7. Hot meal after a long and wet walk on the typhoon day 8. View from the Sapporo train station 9. Last day of our road trip
Those of you who follow me on instagram will probably hate me now know because it’s all the pics from there but I think they look pretty all put together and they all have such different colors and moods.

We stayed on Hokkaido for two weeks and afterwards took the ferry to Tsuruga on Honshu and visited Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Kyoto is so rich in shrines, temples and beautiful green space that it’s easy to forget that you’re actually in a city.

From early till mid November we travelled around Kyushu and finally had the chance to set up our tent and enjoy some mind blowing places. The food, people and nature were incredible and I wish we had stayed even longer.
