Japan has always been on the top of our travel bucket list for years, but my husband and I were delaying our travel plans. So after saving some bucks we finally visited one of the most beautiful country :)
Japan is amazing in every way - the genuinely friendly people, impeccably clean streets, consistently delicious food, incredibly punctual transportation systems and breathtaking mountains. It has a long history of culture & tradition, and of course incredible cuisine with authentic sushi on offer everywhere you turn.
I visited Japan for the first time in Spring to see beautiful Cherry Blossom and fell in love with the country the moment our plane landed. When I reach there cherry blossom has just started so I could not enjoy its full bloom. With all its beauty and delicious food, Japan did not disappoint. In fact, it went way beyond my expectations!
I landed in Tokyo first, took my JR Rail pass and straight away headed to Kyoto. I took Hikari train and it took me around 2 hours 40 mins to reach Kyoto station.
Note: Buy JR pass online before you land in Japan. You can buy a voucher and get the pass by showing the voucher at the JR pass counter. It's cheaper if you buy online in your home country.
