I don’t really know why, but I’m the kind of person who will wake up one morning with a sudden and intense desire to go some place specific in the world. I had never been tempted to go to Japan before, but suddenly one day I just realised that I have to go. Usually when I have decided on where I want to go, I just begin to absorb all the information and inspiration I can to the point where I lose track of time (and there is nothing I love more than obsessing over a place I’m going to even of it’s months in advance).
While I’m a part of many travel related groups on facebook, I can’t help but being a little uncomfortable when people write things like “I have been in Thailand now for three days and I was wondering if you have any advice on fun things to do here?” simply because that’s just not the kind of traveller I am. Half the fun for me when it comes to travelling is getting inspired before a trip and youtube is a great source when it comes to travel inspiration. Here are my current favorite youtube channels covering Japan.
