NOTE: please do not use the following images without explicit permission from me. I know I have minimal control over this, but I chose to do a visual blog to share the sights that met my eyes in both gardens and therefore did not want to watermark since I worried this would take some authenticity away from my photos.

  1. I love your Japan posts! We lived in Tokyo for 6 years and it was definitely the best time of my life. I am a vegetarian- on and off- right now it is off. I love to eat fish and so I am thinking of becoming a pesceterian. But I am so glad to see that you were able to eat in Japan 🙂

    I’ve always thought that Japan and Korea are the hardest Asian countries to be in as a vegetarian.
    Great posts! Thanks for the stories!

    • I completely agree 🙂 both places were tough to eat in- though both Kyoto and Seoul had more vegan eateries which was helpful! I’m so jealous that you lived in Tokyo for 6 years- I feel I have only skimmed the surface in terms of what Japan has to offer. What was your favourite thing about living there? 🙂

      • I love the culture and the people most of all. And how safe the city (Tokyo) is, in spite of it being so big and crowded. We lived there as ex-pats and so we had the best of two worlds- as a gaijin (foreigner) and as a local. Everyday, living in Tokyo, was an adventure. It’s constantly changing. Even in one of the places we lived in, the shops would change. One day it is a Japanese plate shop, and the next time it would change into something else. I never really got bored living there. I wish blogging was popular then so I could’ve blogged all my experiences.

      • Did you ever keep a diary/journal? Maybe you could do some retrospective entries? Either way, the fact that you are still travelling around now means that there are lots of posts us readers get to look forward to 🙂
