25 photos that will make you fall in love with Japan

Japan is one of those places that you could keep exploring for your entire life and still never see it all. It may be small in size but it’s full of history, culture and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes. My latest trip to Japan was the third time I’ve had the opportunity to visit this amazing place and I still feel like I’ve only just scratched the surface.

It’s the type of place that’s difficult to describe with words and so I’ve decided the best way to share it with you is through the images I captured on my travels. In two weeks I ate my way through Tokyo, climbed Mt Fuji, explored the many temples of Kyoto, made friends with the deer of Nara, stared in awe at the giant Torii Gate of Miyajima, wiped tears from my eyes at the Hiroshima Peace memorial and fulfilled my dreams of attending Hogwarts in Osaka.

I can’t guarantee it but I suspect the following 25 photos will make you fall in love with Japan. If you’re still not convinced, book a trip to Japan and experience it for yourself. You won’t regret it.
