Our inspiration for visiting Japan had initially come from our desire to visit Tokyo, and we were now finally here after getting a train from Mount Fuji in the afternoon. We had heard from others back at home, and by meeting others whilst travelling, that Tokyo was everything from ‘crazy’ to ‘mind-blowing’. We couldn’t wait to see it for ourselves.
Our journey to Mount Fuji involved leaving Kyoto in the early hours of the morning, and getting a combination of four trains(!) to reach there. Worth it, for a look at probably Japan’s most recognisable landmark.
