Day out of Tokyo
I left my Ryokan in the morning, stored all my luggage at the staion lockers, and got a train to southwest coast of Japan. The plan was to visit Kamakura and Yokohama. I had many places I wanted to see around there and managed to visit a few.

Evening in Yokohama
After getting lost in Kamakura as the night fell, I got on the train to Yokohama. Outside the station area, everything was empty and quiet. It felt unusual. I am sure there is a lot more to see here, I might come back another day.

About 15 Days in Japan

This a recording of my first experiences in Japan as I travel across the country and meet many different people.

This blog is inspired by the wonderful 19 Days in Japan, which I used as a model. Please have a look at it and support the work Lena and Filipe have done. Mike Mata's One Week In Japan timelapse is also an inspiration and motivation.
