Hi Everyone,

Just thought I’d let you know I’ve made it to Tokyo and am one week in on my adventure! So far I haven’t left Tokyo, but plan on heading down to Kyoto on Wednesday, and then dont really have plans after that. I’ve had the most amazing last few days – exploring Tokyo with a couple of girls I met in the hostel. We’ve been running around everything from the fish markets to the lights and high rises of Shinjuku. Ive been really lucky to have picked a hostel in a quieter area which seems to be a bit of a tourist attraction for Japanese people. We’re at the back of a maze of all these incredable little laneways which are jampacked with shops and restaurants.

More soon . . .
