My Japan Bucket List

I think it’s so important for everyone to have a bucket list of some kind. For me, it really inspires me and keeps me focused on my life outside of work. Sometimes, I get so caught up in what I do that I forget to have fun. I try to always do something every weekend, whether it’s just exploring more of the city I live in, or the station I live by, because I know I’m never going to have this opportunity again. As cheesy as it sounds, I’m trying really hard not to take any part of my time in Japan for granted.

And that’s where my Japan bucket list comes in. A lot of these things aren’t necessarily activities I can fit into one weekend, but rather require a three-day weekend at minimum, but it’s always here to remind me to always keep exploring. I try to update this list as much as I can whenever I see something new and cool that sounds interesting. If anyone has any other suggestions, let me know and I’ll check it out!
