We begin a new series on Japan! In fact, this series will be divided into two parts, mostly because I visited Japan TWICE since moving to Hong Kong. Ha ha, Japan is quite close now, only a 4-5 hour flight away, so I’ve taken the opportunity to visit as often as I can (since I do love visiting Japan so much).
My first visit to Tokyo was in November 2017. I had only been living in Hong Kong for about two months by that point in time. However, it was the first time ever that I would be missing the beautiful fall foliage for which Boston is famous.
I vowed I would see foliage somewhere, even if I couldn’t fly back to the US. I was thrilled to find out that Tokyo’s fall foliage season is later than Boston’s, and would peak right around Thanksgiving holiday!
When a friend told me she needed to go to Tokyo over Thanksgiving for work, I jumped at the opportunity to hop along for the ride….
