Three years ago today my first trip across Japan and Korea began. For six weeks I wandered all across both nations, spending four and a half weeks in Japan before going to Korea for a week and then returning to Japan for the final days. Today I’ll share some select photos from various spots I visited on that trip. Many of these locations would be revisited during my second trip in 2019 but a few are unique to the 2017 journey.
