We had the best holiday of our lives in Japan on our honeymoon. The country is so diverse, the people are so nice....how can you not have a great time? Oh, and it's cheap too (contrary to rumours)...Here are a few snapshots of our two weeks:

Amami Islands, 2 hours by plane from Tokyo
Fushimi Inari, Kyoto

The Golden Pavilion, Kyoto
Takayama
Strawberry shaved ice

Hida beef - the best beef we've ever tasted

  9. We so wanted to go on honeymoon to Japan! But thought we couldn't afford it. (And, when we would have been booking flights etc., I wasn't definitely allowed time off work, so it would have been madness).

    This looks AMAZING.

    Congratulations! Hope you are finding it as wonderful being married as we are.

  11. I'm currently debating whether a July honeymoon to Japan is just going to be too hot and humid but had recollection that you'd gone in the summer, and am immensely reassured by this post. Love your blog by the way!

    1. I'm not going to lie, it was so hot! But you just adjust after a while - I don't regret going in July....better than June as that's the rainiest season..x
