During the summer this year, I went to Japan for a 4 week long trip! This marks my 4th trip to the land of the rising sun! I originally posted on Danny's main site but the section mysteriously disappeared so I decided to post on Figure Fm! I'll be posting photos of my trip to Japan and at the end of all these posts will be my Japan loot post! I hope you enjoy photos from Day 1-2 in of my trip to Japan!

For complete coverage of the day, please head over to my blog!

The quickest way to get to your hotel...if it's on the bus route is to take a limobus! I usually take one as it's the quickest way to my hotel as I do not want to drag my luggage around a busy train station! If you don't mind paying the extra yen for it, it's worth it!

You get some nice scenery photos while taking the bus!

Harajuku's most popular tourist attraction!

There are a lot of foreigners working here! Most of the foreigners that works the streets as promotional people are extremely rude. I take a picture of the street and this guy walks up and yells at me to delete the photo. The reason...he's in it... Why do I get the feeling he was an illegal foreigner... I'm not saying that all foreigners who stay in Japan are rude but there are some of them out there...
