Destination: Japan

FALL TRAVEL GUIDE

Team members began pre-holiday celebrations by taking a quick trip to Japan, yes you read that correctly, they were off to the Orient to relish in the natural landscapes and street scenes of Kobe, Osaka, and Tokyo before settling into the surreal season of giving with family and friends. I was immediately drawn to the evening street scenes, as there is something magical about being out at night, where the nonsensical and disjointed come together for absolute FUN!!!

Images of Tokyo Skytree Town taken from the observation tower in Sumida, Japan. Tokyo Skytree resembles a five story pagoda and is a the tallest structure in Japan. It is the second tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

 

Tennōji-ku, Osaka has a sprawl of skyscrapers with a 6th century Shitennoji Temple centered around green spaces. But, this area of Horikoshicho is a retro-style, neon-lit entertainment zone where late-night crowds hit pubs and snack bars.

This age old custom of traditional dress to attend the temple for evening prayer is striking, but seeing these young ladies with their 21st century cell phones definitely adds to their charm.

Travel stylishly,
K

  1. We were in Tokyo right before Christmas years ago. Never saw a more exquisite display of holiday splendor that that! Curious, since Japan is not really Christian. But you know, God loves everything, and so do we! And the Christmas spirit transcends all.

    1. Beautifully stated, as the holiday splendor of Japan is exquisite. And, it is good to know the Christmas spirit transcends all because, I have begun decorating {stealthily of course} to create the impression the house has always been overdone!!!
