Snowboarding!







We went skiing!! Well, snowboarding. It was amazing! We chose Niseko and the snow was incredible for February and everything was picture perfect. The powder was fresh every morning and was like a dream to lay on and make snow angels!





We didn't just snowboard though, we found some fabulously authentic ramen bars, had the most incredible degustation at Kamimura, a michelin star restaurant and warmed up in some pretty awesome bars. I managed to fracture my tailbone, but that aside, we had an awesome time with awesome friends.

Tokyo!

We've been to Japan!! I've been wanting to experience Japan for years so when our friends Paul and Michelle also said they've also wanted to go it was a done deal.

This country is amazing! We had so much fun. Tokyo was incredible, but we only had 3 days there so we definitely want to go back. The food was so fresh and everything was beautifully presented with such pride, even the street food. Surprisingly cheap as well, cheaper than Australia.

Tsujita!

Tokyo was such a disparity of ancient history and the super modern world seemingly happy to co-exist.  I loved the hustle and bustle of modern Tokyo, but just completely in love with their ancient temples and incredible history.

We spent hours just wandering around, no plans, just happening upon amazing places and amazing experiences. Wish we had more time here, it went so quickly. We're already planning our trip back.
