As some of you may already know, I had the amazing experience of getting to cross a bucket list destination off this month by getting to visit Tokyo for the very first time. And let me tell you, the trip is one that I will remember for the rest of my life. However, before I took off, I was a little worried about visiting for the first time. I’ve traveled plenty of times before, but going to a city alone where English is far from the primary language and I also had little to no Japanese vocabulary of my own, can be a little intimidating. But the moment I got to the MOXY Tokyo Kinshicho, I knew that my worries of not being able to communicate were immediately going to be put to rest.
Being able to go to Japan is an experience I have dreamed of since I was a little boy. Growing up and being mildly obsessed with anime, cartoons and Japanese pop culture were big parts of who I am. I have many friends who enjoy it as well and some even watch the videos on animehentaivideos! I also carry the love I had for all of these parts of my childhood into the adult that I am now. However, it does not only stop at a love for pop culture and Japanese cartoons, but it flows into a love of cuisine, culture and of course fashion. That’s why I was beyond excited to be able to finally stamp a trip to Tokyo into my passport and cross off a long time bucket list destination, all thanks to the incredible team at Air Canada.
