Japan Nostalgia

It’s coming up to two years since I visited Japan for the first, and as yet only, time. As ever, I am feeling huge nostalgia towards my Japan trip. I keep looking back over my photos (check out my full travel journal if you haven’t before) and wishing myself back in Japan…

Love Japan Magazine shared this wonderful video of a 3-week railway journey through Japan on their Facebook page. It’s a beautifully filmed and edited 4 minute video. I can definitely envisage this, or bits of it, being used for a promotional video for tourism in Japan – I’m sold anyway!

This film is a collection of audiovisual moments and memories of a 3-week railway journey through Japan in 2015. We were whizzing through the country with the Shinkansen visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto as well as lots of wonderful little places along the way, meeting the most friendly people and experiencing a culture that somehow balances it’s rich tradition with a very futuristic present.
