I have maintained two blogs since 2011. The Inspired Stone was created as a fun place to talk about beauty, travel, fitness, and health. I have decided to not renew my domain and though the site will still be available, it will no longer be updated (it hasn’t be updated since 4/5/19).
I wrote a series of blog posts on The Inspired Stone about traveling to Japan. Traveling to Japan was a dream of mine since I was a child. When I was planning our trip, I bought a book and I found a lot of information online. I spent weeks reading and planning, booking, and deciding what was most important to me for us to see and do. Ultimately though, I had to decide for myself and book everything myself.
The trip was perfect. Not even a hiccup. I obviously could not guarantee that experience but I wanted to share everything about our trip with anyone interested in traveling to the cities we had visited. I also wanted to memorialize the trip so right after we returned home, I started writing about the restaurants, shops, people, hotels, and everything we did in each city we visited. The posts, which include photos, city itineraries, hotel and restaurant recommendations, traveling tips, and other helpful information, are near and dear to my heart.
I do not know when I will be able to visit Japan again. But I am looking forward to the next few days as I re-read and relive the trip by posting the blog entries here on Monarch Way.
