Very excited to see the leaves beginning to turn today at the Toji Temple (which we are lucky enough to have a view of from our Airbnb!). #japan #kyoto #tojitemple (at Toji Temple, Kyoto, Japan)

Shibuya crossing: where pedestrians flood the streets and you’d better make it across in time, because nobody in a car has time for your shit. (at Shibuya Crossing)

Tokyo! You have been gorgeous. We’ve met so many incredibly lovely people so far, from Michko at the sumo, to Yuki in Shinjuku, to the group of adorable English language students who showed us around the Meiji Jingu Shrine. 友達でいてくれてありがとう! 🙋
Next up, Kyoto!

Things to love about Tokyo number 82,725: The public transport system. Subway trains are crazy cheap, on time to the second, and only about 3-5 minutes apart. Are you taking notes, Melbourne?

The first of many shrines over the coming weeks: the beautiful Meiji Jingu. #meijijingushrine #shibuya #japan #tokyo (at Meiji Jingu Shrine)

Attn anyone in Tokyo right now: there is a pram full of cats on the streets of Harajuku. I repeat: A PRAM. FULL. OF CATS. 🙀😻 (at Harajuku)

We got amongst the J-League action yesterday and adopted Yokohama F Marinos. Yokohama 1-0 Shimizu 👌🇯🇵⚽️ #japan #yokohama #jleague #yokohamafmarinos (at Nissan Stadium, Shin-Yokohama Skatepark)

We got amongst the J-League action yesterday and adopted Yokohama F Marinos. Despite all those people dressed as chairs in the background, the other side was full of Yokohama supporters and the atmosphere was awesome. Yokohama 1-0 Shimizu 👌🇯🇵⚽️ #japan #yokohama #jleague #yokohamafmarinos (at Nissan Stadium, Shin-Yokohama Skatepark)

We learnt how to use the Tokyo Metro yesterday! This means now we can save our energy for walking AROUND places instead of tiring ourselves out just getting TO them. #japan #tokyo #kayabachostation #practicallylocals

Already lovin’ you, Japan.
Here’s part of our daily walk from the hotel to Tokyo station.

Obligatory postal shot. #Japan #Shibusawa #Japanpost #auspost

Wandering through the streets of Shibusawa today on our way to Hadano.

This is Michko. We sat next to her at the sumo tournament where she nattered to us even though she knew we had no idea what she was saying, and tried to help us with our terrible Japanese.
Then she said we were kawaii my heart popped. How do you say, “NO YOU ARE PLS ADOPT ME” in Japanese? 😍
