In the middle of November my boyfriend and finally boarded the plane bound for Tokyo. Since our return to Germany in the beginning of December things have been busy. I turned thirty, a few days before Christmas we moved from Heidelberg and we celebrated Christmas together with my boyfriend’s family. On the 27th of December we received the keys to our new apartment in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, and left for Sweden the same afternoon.
I have been trying to write this post for two months now but find it hard to summarize our trip in words, I am somehow tired of travel stories. I am just another person who will try to tell you about my absolutely amazing holiday. So hereare the photos. You will get the story another time. I love to photograph, playing with light and time, capturing landscapes and faces. However, during our two weeks in Japan I took very few photos. One part of me was rather overwhelmed from all impressions and another part of me constantly said that I should just leave the camera behind and try to enjoy the moment. Do we really need 20 more photos of a Tori-gate or sushi? We really enjoyed Japan, it was like nothing we had ever experienced, unusual and beautiful in a strange mix. Everyone we met were very polite and we (read Europeans) came across as rather uncivilized.
Day one to four: Tokyo
