Travel | Tokyo Skytree

8th February 2015

If there’s one thing you must do in Tokyo, it’s visit the Tokyo Skytree. This huge building quite literally towers over the city as it’s the world’s tallest tower!

From Osaka we travelled to Kyoto, one of Japan’s more traditional cities. Here you can find lots of old Japanese temples and shrines dating back to 800AD.

Travel | Osaka, Japan

The first instalment of our Asian travels. We landed in Osaka late last Friday after our plane was delayed. We then managed to get on the wrong train into the city from the airport. Not the best start but it all worked out in the end. For our first night we wandered around the streets […]
