Three Sherwoods went to Japan
The idea of a trip to Japan with my Mum and my sister first came up a few years ago, and we talked idly about it a few times but never really came up with a plan or a schedule. Until the day a clever someone found us an amazing deal with a budget airline and it was too good an opportunity to miss.
In our first few days in Tokyo we marveled at everything.
We admired the lack of rubbish and the amount of greenery everywhere in very urban areas which we expected to be a concrete jungle.
We also admired the space-saving carparks.
We walked past a whole lot of dried fish. There was a strong aroma.
We picked out a few different districts to explore, some with more success than others. Shimokitazawa provided a very pleasant half day of wandering, taking photos and of course op/vintage shopping. (Sherwoods can't resist an op shop.)
