Tsukiji Market is a large wholesale market for fish, fruits and vegetables in central Tokyo. My strongest memory is of the huge dry fish and shocked expression on my friends face, when she turned her head abruptly and it hung just an inch from her face.

Tokyo is a amazing, particularly its subway system. Whenever I travelled anywhere, I could always find people wearing kimonos.It struck me, seeing traditional clothing while using modern transportation.

 I remember there was a huge table in the living room during our stay in airbnb , large enough for us to lay on. My friend took full advantage of this, rolling around the surface of the table, like it was an enormous bed.

 I discovered flowers I did not know even existed when I visited Kyoto Botanical Garden, for example the monkey face orchid. As I looked closely at the orchid, it felt as though this monkey face would begin a conversation with me.

I traveled to Japan in February, during the time of the Chinese spring festival. I thought the weather would be lovely and comfortable, but actually it wasn’t. Especially on a rainy days, the air would be sticky with humidity. The wetness in the air only made the cold temperature cling to my skin.

Everybody knows that ramen is a huge part of Japanese cuisine. I quickly learned that when ordering ramen, you really need to make sure you ask how large the portion is. One bowl could easily feed my friend and I.

Kinosaki Onsen is a popular traditional Japanese onsen town located 2.5 hours from Kyoto. It is known for its many natural hot springs. My memory of Kinosaki is of the naked woman, many different body shapes, and bust sizes. The best part was relaxing in the hot spring while observing people’s reactions. I think we were all equally entertained by our differing exposed figures.
