Happy 2021 (or Reiwa 3) to all of my blog followers. Thank you so much for following this blog over the years and I’m sorry that I haven’t updated things in so long. I feel sometimes that this blog might be useless for the time being, since we can’t go around the world to Japan or to the other places that we want to go.
While the vaccine is making its way around at a slow pace, COVID-19 is still very much a threat. It still remains to be seen if and when global tourism will begin again, even with vaccinations now taking place and taking hold.
Lately I’ve stumbled upon a few YouTube channels depicting slow walks through Japanese scenery and nightlife, and also just realized that a content creator I’ve followed for many years – John Daub – just recently went out on his own as he continues to publish online videos. With this and other factors, I’ve started to – slowly – turn the wheels in my brain to plan for another possible trip. The ideal departure would be late 2021, but in all honestly, I should just plan for when Japan re-opens the borders.
I may try to post some more tips and content as the months go by, so please continue to follow for updates. Once again, thanks for your support!
