Polaroids from Japan

Polaroids from our trip last year to Japan. We had an awesome time if a bit short. We saw the snow monkeys in Yudanaka, walked up the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, tried shochu, karaoked late at night, drank in the Golden Gai and went gachapon crazy in Akihabara and fell in love with miso ramen amongst other things!

We're dreaming of another trip very soon, 2 weeks was not enough!
