Over the last days I felt like I moved to Japan to begin a new life and didn't want it to end. I will miss the people I've met, and feel so lucky for all the moments we spent together. Japan is fantastic. I will miss you Japan.

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.
