Hi Everyone,

It's been a very busy week trying to settle into our new destination in Japan. We will be here for an extended period of time and having the kids go to a new country will be once in a lifetime experience. The last time they were in Japan was 3 years ago, so they don't remember anything apart from being on a plane and whatever they have seen in photos. Our first destination would be Hokkaido briefly so we could see it without being too cold. That being said, it was already freezing when we arrived as we were coming from somewhere quite warm, and the kids were not used to the drastic change.

The first few days were to take them around some sites around Sapporo, experience the local food and culture and hopefully slowly ease them into life in Japan when we move to the countryside/non-city life. I have packed a lot of stuff for the kids but coming to somewhere so cold, I realised what I bought may not be sufficient and also tried to fit in with the local style, so I bought myself a few items as well to keep myself warm. I also stocked up on a few skincare items as what I normally use was not moisturising enough for this cold weather. I love Japanese skincare, so I won't complain there.

I am hoping to share more of our life in Japan here more regularly since we are getting used to life here in Japan and hopefully pick up a few Japanese phrases along the way out way around in the countryside (apart from using our trusty Google translate app).

I was scrolling down somewhat hastily to tell you how I could use the 2nd image as a wallpaper or screensaver, then I saw the 3rd and the 4th and just about gave up. Haha. They're really nice images with nice angles to them. Well done!

Japan is one place I've always wanted to visit. It seems all so fascinating from the movies. And beautiful too. Looking forward to when I do.

Enjoy!
