Winter Wonderland, oh Japan

It’s been just over a week since I returned from my Winter holiday in Japan and as usual, my post-holiday blues are in full swing and showing no signs of stopping!

From the moment we touched down I’ll admit a little (OK, huge) part of me was desperately searching for a Lawson’s Conbini. Well, you never know, one may have magically made its way to Melbourne in my absence, ready for me to raid the Musubi shelf of it’s super oishi Tuna and Mayo Onigiri. But unfortunately, I blinked and was not-so-kindly reminded that I was back in Aussie town, when I received awful customer service at Duty Free-before I had even left the airport.

Ohh how I appreciate Japanese hospitality so much!

I’ll let my pictures do the talking but I will say this- for someone who is not so fond of winter, I’m officially converted. Japan, and especially Hokkaido, were absolutely mesmerizing in this season! And just as picturesque at this time of year as in Spring. If you ever get the chance, please visit Japan in Winter, you won’t regret it.

Oh and the ramen..OH MY GOODNESS..the ramen.
