The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden (新宿御苑) in Tokyo, Japan is massive with a circumference of 3.5 km. We spent hours walking around and viewing the garden’s three distinct styles: French Formal, English Landscape, and Japanese traditional. What a place to run in the grass and get lost!


Turning Japanese

**By the time I wrote this, in September, this blog post was already outdated as I visited Japan during my summer vacation in August. For some reason I never got round to posting it…until now. Behold! A post about my trip to Tokyo, five months late.**

If you’ve learned anything about me by reading this blog, chances are it’s that I am incredibly behind when posting about events in my life. If you’re still reading this blog you probably don’t care though, and for that I am glad.

Journeying in Japan… Part 2, Tokyo

After the culture of Kyoto we boarded the bullet train to Tokyo. Bullet trains are fast. The KTX in Korea is quick but the bullet trains, especially the Nozomi, (The Japanese have six kinds of bullet train) are rapid. It takes a mere two hours and twenty minutes to travel the 462.8km from Kyoto to Tokyo. So little a distance the Japanese couldn’t be bothered to rename the cities properly and just shuffled the letters around.
