Our Winter Japan Trip Itinerary

Our Winter Japan Trip Itinerary


When there’s a Japan seat sale at Cebu Pacific, my heart always skips a beat. Usually when I go to a place the second time, it’s not as amazing as the first time. Japan however, does not disappoint. We went to about 7 cities/towns. It was my dream to see Shirakawa-go and I finally did! It was not cheap but I think it was worth it since It would probably be hard to go back during the winter and this is the time Shirakawa-go really shines. I don’t mind coming back to this beautiful country whenever I can afford it or live there if I ever get the chance. Haha.
