There’s still much of Japan I’ve yet to explore but what I have seen, I’ve loved. Characterised by smouldering volcanoes, traditional gardens and a population who invented the rulebook on politeness and etiquette.

My Japan Highlights

Here’s where I got to in Japan. Click the destination name for related blog posts.


Definitely not Japan’s most well know city but I was really keen to visit the flights were really cheap. It was a great call though. Kagoshima is very laid back with friendly people and a looming volcano by the bay. If you’re venturing south in Japan, definitely make a stop here.
