Time to Spring


Up Up & Away

Happy first day of Spring! And one day before take off! It has become increasingly more difficult to imagine traveling to Japan as the years of the pandemic went by. But thanks be to God, an opportunity to return to Japan has come. Everything is just about in place. I need to finish up some work tasks and do some house cleaning, I’m ready to go! Today is the first day of Spring and it’s time for some cherry blossom viewing!

Yesterday, I picked up my friend’s amazing camera. It’s small and powerful with great video and photo options. It fits perfectly in my small carry bag. My big bag is tight, light, and just right. I carefully sorted my travel documents and created an all-in-one pdf document containing all the important documentation. I leave a copy behind for my family to keep track of me as well as take advantage of all new travel streamlining and improvements due to the pandemic.

Thanks for following my trip preparation. Please stay tuned and read about my daily whereabouts in Japan over the next eight days. Look for photos and videos of some of the best Godzilla places and shops in Japan and more!
