My name is Rachel and this is my site which will allow you to follow me on my trip to Japan.

I am going to share with you the process for applying for my visa, packing for my trip and my thoughts and feelings. This is a big step for me as I have never lived abroad before so very excited.

I am going to include activities, places of interest, places to stay and places to eat and drink.

This is also going to include learning the language.

Along the way, I will post things that are happening in my life, trips with friends etc

I am aiming to include videos as well as photos and I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
