As soon as Alice could, she embarked on a classic 'round the world' trip travelling through South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and many parts of South East Asia. Wanting to experience and immerse herself in a culture completely different to her own, Alice found herself settling in Japan as an English language teacher in Tokyo.
The fascinating diversity in culture and beautiful, scenic places kept Alice in Japan for two and a half years. She found her time there to be a very positive learning curve in all aspects of her life, fuelling her passion for travelling and the enthusiasm she now has to share her experiences with others. She feels everyone should get the chance to enjoy the wonders that hide away in Japan.
I'll never forget when…
My most memorable moment in Japan would have to be passing through the whole of the 'Nakasendo Way'. I was part of a team running in a relay, which began in Kyoto. This experience allowed me the chance to explore deep into the mountains and the countryside that boasted every shade of green imaginable, while the historical story of the Edo period unfolded before us. A seemingly never ending scenic path stretched nearly all the way to the bright lights of Tokyo. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been to in Japan.
