Back in August 2016 I traveled to Japan for the first time and it was a truly amazing experience! Japan is such a colourful, quirky and beautiful country, and I think nothing captured this quite as well as the instagrams I posted during and after this trip!

So in order to share with other curious travelers what it’s really like to travel to Japan, I’ve put together a collection of my favourite instagrams from my time in the country! Enjoy!
