  • If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo - look no further than UNESCO-World Heritage listed Nikko - just 2 hours away. Pictured is the almost 100m tall Kegon Waterfall, perhaps the most famous of Nikko's many beautiful waterfalls and often ranked amongst one of Japan's most beautiful falls! 📍 To get here from Nikko or Tobu-Nikko Stations, take the Tobu Bus to Chuzenjiko Onsen which takes around 50 minutes and costs 1,150 yen, (approx $14 AUD) - The falls is then just a short walk from the Chuzenjiko Onsen bus terminal.

  • 🗼 Seguí varios consejos de Internet para este viaje y el mejor fue ir en invierno. La primavera es famosa y por eso extremadamente concurrida y cara (alojamientos, tickets de avión, etc). El otoño es precioso, pero llueve y mis hijas tienen clase. El verano, según Internet, es lo peor por el calor intenso, la humedad extrema y millones de turistas. Y encima, también llueve ☔️ Nuestros días en Japón fueron BELLOS, todos de cielo azul y despejado. Hacía frío, pero no bajo cero. Casi parecía que éramos los únicos occidentales ahí y eso lo hizo más especial. Con el bono de ver a la gente en Tokyo vestida de invierno, que es un espectáculo superchic 🧣

El único día nublado fue este y y me gustó muchísimo ver la inmensa ciudad bajo el cielo gris desde el observatorio Tokyo CityView en el Mori Art Museum 🗼De allí nos fuimos al aeropuerto para regresar a Montreal así que yo estaba básicamente llorando como una recién nacida. 🍣

  • Fushimi, an ancient castle, port & inn town is now famed for its spring water and consequently, its delectable sake. Hop on the Jukkokubune (pictured here) or Sanjukkokubune boats and cruise down the Yodogawa River, passing riverbanks lined with wispy old willow trees and magnificent sake breweries. In the spring the views are made even more spectacular by the rows of cherry blossoms that bloom throughout the town.

  • JAPAN TRAVEL: MATSUMOTO CASTLE IN NAGANO, JAPAN “Outstanding” would be the word to best describe Matsumoto Castle. One of Nagano, Japan’s prominent tourist spots, it was built between 1593 to 1594. It was declared as a national treasure, and was carefully restored and preserved for a long time. It’s known as the “Crow Castle” because of its black structure made of wood and plaster. It rests on top of a stone base and is surrounded by a crystal clear moat that, if you stand on the right spot outside, you can see the castle’s reflection. During the cherry blossom season, the structure creates a beautiful contrast with pink hues.

To get inside, we passed by two gates, with the second gate positioned on the right angle. The gates are enclosed by defense walls with tiny holes for shooting bullets and arrows. This type of gate is called masugata, a kind of trap entrance for intruders.

At the entrance of the main castle, you will be asked to remove our shoes and wear the slippers provided which is a common Japanese tradition.

The tour starts at the Gun Museum on the 2nd floor. This is where all kinds of weaponry are displayed—from the smallest to the largest guns, to self-defense guns, matchlocks, and armors equipped with battle accessories.

The enormous castle appears to be five stories high, when in fact, there are 6 floors inside. The actual 3rd floor is not visible from the outside. This is called the “hidden floor” which served as the castle’s safe room where no window can be found.

The stairs between the 4th and 5th floors are the steepest in the castle, with each step measuring about 40 cm. The top floor used to be the castle’s watch tower. This floor is covered with 16 pieces of tatami (woven floor). Climbing the steep stairs of Matsumoto Castle is worth the trip because you get to see a magnificent view of the entire Matsumoto City.
