As a chef, Japan was a country I longed to visit. I was and still am amazed at their knife skills and simple but fresh food. Since 2018 is a BIG year for birthdays - I am turning 50 this year (I know I look so young) and my mother-in-law is turning 70, we thought let’s do a family trip to Japan to celebrate these milestones.
Japan has been one country that I have not heard one bad word about. Actually on the contrary, people of all cultures rave about this country - mindfulness, food, temples, beauty, trains, organisation, markets, skiing and the list goes on. As you can imagine the bar was set very high for us!
So did it meet our expectations?……. Well read on and find out!
