This will be a short update; sort of like an abstract for future posts.
So I’ve been in Japan for 10 days now and I’m loving it. I’ve met a very colourful cast of characters ranging from two “Coming to America” type guys from Kuwait to one impossibly mellow hostel owner. Overall though, my biggest observation is how expensive Japan can be for travellers. We eat three meals a day, sleep in hostels and that’s pretty much all we do and still we manage to spend 60 or 70$ per day. I don’t understand!
I’m coming back to Korea Sunday, which I’m excited for since I’ll be able to feel not like a poor person, but I’m a bit sad at the thought of leaving Japan. It’s a really beautiful country. The people we’ve met have been really cool and the places are just amazing. I’m seriously considering working here…
Until now, we’ve been in Tokyo for the better part of a week, Kyoto for 4 night, Nara for 2 nights and Osaka for one night. We’re back in Tokyo for 2 nights after taking the midnight bus from Osaka. I’m meeting up with my Japanese friend I met at French camp today, but besides that, it’s pretty much a mystery.
I feel like I’m just rambling at this point. There’s so much to say! Stay posted!
