At the beginning of April, Mike and I headed to Japan for a week. It was high time we went there since it's so close and flights are so cheap! My school holidays aligned perfectly with cherry blossom season which was lovely. However, it was also incredibly rainy which made it a more difficult trip at times. Here are a few shots of spots in and around Kyoto - Fushimi Inari Shrine, Nara to visit the deer, geisha spotting in Gion, and Arashiyama bamboo forest.
