First Taste Japan – Kyoto and Nara

Howdy all. I hope this post finds you well. Today I have pieced together a new video for you. What excited me before I started editing was that this was my first time in Japan, the country I have spent the most time in in my life outside Australia. I lived there from 2012 to 2014, but I first visited in early April 2011, around four weeks or a little less after the Great Tohoku Earthquake.

It was part of my biggest ever trip, and I was already in Vietnam when the quake struck and I agonised for a week or two before deciding whether I would go. In the end I decided I would as it was pretty much the country I was most excited about in the trip. Instead of flying into Tokyo I decided to fly into Kansai, and so the video starts off in Kuala Lumpur where I transited overnight before flying in, and then you see me on the train to Kyoto from Kansai Airport.

The quality sadly is down on these ones in terms of clarity, mostly the vision but the audio could be better too. But I found it really interesting to look back through and edit. Sadly I had to jettison a lot of footage for timing and relevance issues. But these were some great days as I started to discover Japan – enjoy!

Thanks for dropping by – May the Journey Never End!

  1. Beautiful! I visited both Kyoto and Nara almost five years ago, and I have fond memories of both. Nara was especially lovely, especially with the deer at the park!
