ONE WINTER'S DAY IN JAPAN.
One last little part to our overseas trip :)
Due to the fact that we flew over to the Philippines on staff flights (discounted fares; but you only get on the plane if there's spare seats) and the usual flights were all booked out, we ended up having to find a more creative route home-- so we decided to fly back via Japan.
We only had one night there, but we both love, love, LOVE Japan, so it was amazing to be back. It was a little bit of a weather shock; going from the warm, tropical Philippines to freezing, wintery Japan, but thankfully a lot of the stores in the Philippines were selling winter clothes (strangely enough..!) so we bought a few things to keep ourselves warm. Before spending that one day in Japan, I never could have seen myself going on a holiday somewhere that cold, but it was such a different experience for us (because our winters are so tame here) that I think I might like to do it again someday.
We decided to just stay in Narita (right near the airport) because we didn't really have enough time to go into Tokyo, but we had such a nice day exploring somewhere we probably wouldn't have otherwise seen. I love Japan with my heart and can't wait to go back again already.
