Hello! Tonight I am blogging about our recent trip to Kansai which included Osaka and side trips to Kyoto, Nara and Kobe. My last post on the wedding was really fun to write and i’m glad that so many friends, family, and folks from around the world were able to read it. I posted the blog on the weddings subreddit and got great feedback. Thanks for the continued support, hope you enjoy reading this! the Kansai area is definitely worth visiting, especially if you are staying in Tokyo for a while and want to experience something new!
Our first few days in Japan were not too action packed since the wedding was right around the corner and Mariko and I needed to keep our energy up before that big day. We did have lots to cover before the wedding and so….
The flight from Vancouver to Tokyo was smooth, uneventful, and passed by very quickly. We took ANA (All Nippon Airways) to Haneda airport which was less than 9 hours in total. Mariko and I played games and watched movies for most of the flight. I learned she was really good at tetris and she beat me mercilessly until I gave up in a bout of frustration.
