Growing up, I had dreams to live in Japan. Every day of my life I spent mentally preparing myself for that day. In high school I took Japanese classes and read up on all the cool things you could do there.

One day, I applied to study abroad for two weeks in the south of Japan. Everyone got to go except for me and a girl with diabetes. Despite being told that I could go, even with my severe allergy, the teacher who ran the progr...

Instagram has taken the world by storm especially the traveling world. Wherever you go, photos are a must and what better way to share these photos and memories than on a platform with over a billion users! Japan is a treasure trove of Instagram hot spots so I have listed some of my top new cafe discoveries within the most colorful part of Tokyo - Harajuku.

Today, we take a day trip to Tochigi prefecture–about an hour and a half away from central Tokyo. Tochigi prefecture is more in the countryside and we all know the countryside in Japan means beautiful scenery and a chance for amazing photos.

We arrive at Ashikaga Flower Park where 23 acres of blooming flowers await us. The cherry blossoms have said their goodbyes and a new plethora of freshly bloomed, colorful flowers are born.

The one thing I love about Japan is it`s unique layout of local café`s, trendy shops, and variety of experiences to be had. A day in the life of Japan is never boring which makes this country a perfect place to grow your Instagram.

I unexpectedly came across the most aesthetic café in Tokyo while exploring Daikanyama – the little Brooklyn of Japan.

Ink by Canvas is the best café in Tokyo to brighten up your Instagram posts. Alth...

   Don`t be a Logan Paul. For those of you who don`t know who that is: Google is your best friend. In short, he`s basically a well known vlogger who wreaked havoc in Japan, disrespecting the culture, and recording a dead body in a Japanese forest.

   Although I`m sure most decent minded people wouldn`t resort to causing this much trouble, I have seen my fair share of disrespectful foreigners throughout my time living here....

It`s been some time since I left Tokyo. I haven`t left the city since I moved here. Technically, I live in Chiba, but I live so close to the city that I still consider it to be Tokyo. 


Living here is not for everyone. When most think of Japan, the city lights and technology is what comes to mind. nonetheless, there's more to this country than its stereotypical representations. I never thought I`d be living in such a bu...
