Japan 2015

travel, photos, japan

May of 2015, my partner and I traveled to Japan as a family trip. We even made a Trello board to plan everything out. We flew in to Osaka and visited Kyoto, Hakone, and Tokyo. Japan is an amazing and photogenic place. If you are interested in hearing about it or need some recommendations, I'm happy to talk about it on Twitter.
