Have you ever had a travel experience that has haunted you for years after? Our first backpacking trip abroad was to Japan and I still find it filling my dreams at night and constantly on my mind. We consistently list it as our favorite country (which, looking back, means it has an incredibly high bar). One of my personal favorite locations was the shrine of Fushimi Inari.
We live in a world that is fast paced and constantly on the go and you never really realize how much noise the world has until you find yourself in a place of peace. For the first time in my life, I had felt true calm. It was so hard to leave!
I know that the next time we find ourselves in Japan that we’re going to schedule extra time in Kyoto. I need a whole day just to wander Fushimi Inari.
Have you experienced a place that really stuck with you? Where would you return to if you could RIGHT NOW?
