I usually go on vacation without telling you beforehand; I enjoy my free time fully and deconnect from the blog. I admit this is exactly what happened for the last 3 weeks: I left for my other homeland, Japan. I’m back today in Paris with something of a heavy heart, and already missing it.
The kindness, the atmosphere, the incredibly delicious food, the cherry blossoms, the people I met on the road. I miss it ALL. 3 weeks of raw and almost surreal happiness.
I had already visited Japan in 2007, but my stay had been shorter. This second trip was 10 times as intense.
Which is why, although I am sad (but happy to be back with you “live”) I will try to relive this trip with you on the blog by posting my illustrated travel diary, along with pictures and stories of all that happened during these 3 weeks.
I’ll also post on my Instagram all the details that made me laugh/moved me/made me marvel.

I also recommend that you read this post with this Emilie Simon song (“Perdue dans tes bras”) playing in the background. It totally reflects my actual state of mind. It really speaks for itself.
My trip started with 10 days in Tokyo, and then I left for Osaka, Nagoya, Takayama and the Ise province before returning to Tokyo for a few days. (I didn’t go to Kyoto, as I had been there last time: I had really liked it by the way).
You are free to ask me all the questions you want in case you’re planning a trip there too. I’ll try to share my best addresses and tips along the way.
Let’s start with the day I left: here are a couple of pictures as a teaser of all that is ahead for the next weeks we’ll be travelling together. Here we go! (English translation by Bleu Marine)
