So, Japan/日本 was a dream come true⛩
Since I started studying Japanese as my second language (and inevitably watched a ton of anime), I’ve been longing to visit this land and it’s people. It was surreal to be there in person. Zen Buddhism and Reiki are practices I’ve come across in my twenties that have helped me come home to myself; there was definitely an abundance of that healing energy to tap into.
My highlight was a tea ceremony, irori dinner and onsen in the mountains of Hakone/箱根. The clouds even parted long enough to see Mt.Fuji/ふじ山!
