In The Beginning – Part I

4 Apr

Well, so much for my promise to myself to keep up with the blog…whoops! Anywho…let’s get started, shall we?

Let me take you back to the very beginning, February 2011. I came to Japan for a two-week visit, which as most of you know, was the beginning of this epic journey.  (Wow, was this really over a year ago now?) I was overwhelmed by the endless possibilities of things to do but we finally narrowed our choices down to a few key trips, and I’ve done my best to highlight them for you below.

+ Tokyo Disneyland

Have you ever been to California’s Disneyland? Well, then you’ve been to the one in Tokyo. Okay, okay, not technically…at least in California you can understand what people were saying – but that might be the only difference.  Take a look at this:

See any resemblance? If it were not for all of the Japanese folk around, I could have sworn I was in California – well, that, and the fact that it was about 25 degrees out that day! But regardless, we had a great time.

The food is mostly the same (turkey legs!)…

the rides are generally the same (ok, except maybe this one)….

the castle is still the same…

but there were a few slight differences…

While it was eye-opening to see the similarities (and differences) of Disneyland, our next adventure will definitely be to check out Disney Sea.
