Weekend trip with our awesome friend Monica! We all wanted to do this for a while, and it didn't disappoint! I think most people don't realize how much snow dumps on Japan every year (the three snowiest cities on earth are all in Japan).
This was my first time watching Sumo live, and man, it was an awesome experience.
Unexpected leaves of gold.
My first and only time finally visiting Nishiki Ichiba.
It's very interesting every time to see how it has changed (and also some things remain the same). The increasing influx of tourism each year has definitely left its mark, for better or worse.
