    Katsuo-ji: a place to make a wish

    In April when we went to Japan, we managed to go to the Katsuo-ji temple, a place we have never visited before. It’s quite hard to get to by public transportation, but we were lucky enough to get a ride up to the mountain. As we were approaching, we got excited because it looked like we would finally see some blooming Sakura trees. Until then we were quite unlucky, missing the full bloom by just a few days.

We didn’t have our tickets ahead of time, so we first had…

    Travel Tips: Japan

    This October, we were lucky enough to go to Japan again. And this time, we went together. So, we’ve compiled a list of tips for you, if you’re planning a trip to Japan. Always have cash on you. Foreign currency ATMs are hard to come by and you’re never sure a vendor will accept your debit card. Download Google Translate (and Japanese) before you go. It’ll be a lifesaver. If your hotel or Airbnb offer pocket wifi, go for it! And bring an external battery to recharge. Wifi hotspots are almost as hard to find as foreign currency ATMs. Get a JR pass. They’re flexible and will let you take…
