On day 8 it was time for a new destination which happened to be 5 hours train ride but that didn’t matter because we saw our first spot of snow along with some amazing scenery. On our first day in Takayama we visited a primary school and played games and had a snow fight with the kids.
On day 9 we went to Hida no Sato Folk Village which was covered completely in snow and it was verrrrrry beautiful.
On day 10 we woke up extremely early and travelled to Hakone, on the train we saw our first sight of Mt Fuji! That afternoon we went on a pirate ship and saw Mt fuji again!

On day 5 we went to the Hiroshima peace museum and I am sure you are all aware of the incident that happened there. I only took about 5 photos as I felt very overwhelmed and sad on this day and didn’t feel comfortable smiling in front of what remains after the atomic bomb. I’d recommend this museum as a learning experience but if you are planning on going bring some tissues and brace yourself for some shocking things that I myself didn’t expect to see.

Day 6 we woke up to a fantastic breakfast (katsu curry= my favourite Japanese meal) and hopped on a ferry to Miyajima island which happens to be filled with wild deer and spectacular views on top of the mountain. That night we went shopping in Hiroshima and I went to my first pet store in Japan and let’s just say I met my future puppy. Day 7 we went to Himeji Castle unfortunately it was undergoing maintenance so only some parts of the castle were available.

I left for Japan on the 6th of December and had two busy weeks of activities ahead of me. The group travelled to Osaka first then Kyoto, Hiroshima, Takayama, Hakone and Tokyo. Day 1 we headed to Osaka Aquarium one of the biggest aquariums in the world. Day 2 we went to Universal Studios for the day. Day 3 we headed to Kinkakuji temple and Kiyomizu temple and a funky ninja restaurant for dinner. In between all of this I managed to go shopping and try some weird food that I will not be indulging in again.
