As luck would have it, Craig got three days off this week in honor of Respect for the Aged Day and Autumnal Equinox Day, which was perfect since I’m leaving for the states on Friday. Since I’ll be gone another two weeks, it’s wonderful to have some time together before my trip.
Ever since Craig and I began dating, we’ve planned our vacations around getting some new stamps in our passports. While this has led to many amazing adventures, we’ve strived to explore the country we live in just as much. So we decided to use these days off to cross a couple of cities off our list that we’ve been waiting to explore, resisting the urge to just make coffee and watch The West Wing.
No matter where you live, whether it’s close to or far from where you grew up, there is always something new to see and get excited about. I can’t wait to share more of Japan with you.
So, in lieu of a regular “6 Happy Sights” post, I give you some snaps from the first day of our staycation in Yokohama.
