Japan Rocks My Socks

After 3 bullet trains totaling 6.5 hours combined with a prior 10 days of serious traveling and sleeping/showering in hostels, we have arrived safe and sound to the luxuries of modern Western amenities of my sister's house in Misawa, Japan. A hot shower, a real towel, clean clothes, a cup of tea and some chocolate does wonders for the mind, body and soul.  My sister is the hostess with the mostest baking gluten-free banana bread and providing us with all the necessary supplies for manicures and facials.  I feel like a new woman.

While I will do an appropriate vaca-recap upon my return, here a just a few of the sights we've seen, things we've done, foods we've eaten, etc.

I have no clue what the name of this is but it was pretty freakin' sweet.


Imperial Gardens and Castle in Tokyo

In the cable car up to Mt. Fuji viewing area

Maybe I ate a black egg.  Maybe it was delicious.

Oompas at Mt. Fuji...promise it's there.


No vaca is complete without ice cream!

Cherry Blossoms = gorgeous


Guess which bag is mine?

Torri Gates in Kyoto


Huge Buddha in Kyoto


"Golden Pavilion" in Kyoto

World's Largest Buddha, Nara, Japan

We've got a few more days of adventures ahead of us before we make the long journey home.  Can't wait to see you all!

Love,
Cara-san
