Wanderlust Wednesday [1]

This is a weekly feature started by the every amazing Carla from The Crooked Shelf (go follow her now because she is amazeballs FACT) and each week I’ll post about a place or location that I’d love to go and visit for a holiday, a day, an hour or a lifetime.  These are all my own thoughts about the places so may not always be PERFECTLY accurate to how the places actually are but that’s part of why I’d want to go to these places: to see them all for myself.

Tokyo, Japan

I’ve always had this dream to visit Japan and there’s a lot to visit but I’m just fascinated by the 2 extreme ends of the culture that clash and also live in harmony.  You have the very traditional Japan and then the high tech flashy Japan of the future and they are amazing.  I love the art and design style of Japanese culture and would love to be able to just go and walk the streets and seeing everything.

I also love the idea that I’d be completely outside everything because it’s a whole different culture and language so it would be one of the most extreme ways to visit somewhere outside your comfort zone but still feel some safety in knowing that this all exists like a hub of society just like any other city.

I really want to visit Tokyo just once in my life.


  1. What a fabulous meme! I would love to go to Japan too. Just because it is so different to the UK.

  2. I know what you mean about the two extremes - I would love to visit Japan too! It completely fascinates me - hopefully one day I can take a trip there!

  3. I have always wanted to visit Japan, it sounds like such an amazing place to go! I even learnt some Japanese in college, though I'll have to brush up on it before I went, I only know how to say ham sandwich! lol
    but yeah... when do we fly out?! lol

  4. i have to thank Carla @ The Crooked Shelf for the meme. she rocks

    raimy-we can go whenever you want!!!
