  • What can I say about my trip to Japan so far? It's every bit as bizarre and beautiful as I thought it'd be, and then times that by 100. I genuinely don't think I've come across a more generous, kind and respectful people than the Japanese, and it's been brilliant immersing myself in this culture and learning about their way of life. I'm even thinking of bringing this yukata home with me! (📸: @wanderlustchloe) #enjoymyjapan
