Traipsing around Tokyo and Niigata

It’s been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to post at all! But it’s been tremendous fun. There’s too much to tell to compress into one little entry, but long story short? Adam came to Japan for eight days and we had an amazing time sightseeing in Tokyo and around Niigata. We had crazy adventures and made random Japanese friends at almost every turn. Some of the pictoral highlights are below.

There’s a lot more to tell, but I think I’ll just leave it at that for now. More stories to come!
