The wish to visit Japan has been there for a long time. Finally we decided to go at end of 2019. The trip included days in Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. Japan is very much about contrasts and we got the opportunity to experience some of them.

Tokyo is enormous in size and complexity covering more than 2000 square kilometers, 47 miljon people and including 23 cities. Tokyo Metropolitan Building is one of many viewpoints to get some sort of overview.
In Japan you can have fantastic food everywhere and not only local dishes but also international kitchen.
