One Ordinary Family on an Extraordinary Adventure

Our Adventure in Japan

How can you condense Japan into just 5 minutes?

Well, you can’t of course. When Brian set out to put this video together, he first chose all the favorite pictures that told all the best¬†stories about our amazing time in Japan.

A day later, he was still whittling them down because we didn’t think it would work to have a video of our time in Japan that was almost as long as the actual time we were there.

There is so much more to write–and I’ll get it all caught up eventually, I promise. But for now, we invite you to take a look at a most amazing adventure.

Forever changed

Our lives are forever changed by the beauty of Japan…..the people we met, the festivals, the beaches, the waterfalls, the incredible food.

We say sayonara to this great land of Japan for now.

Thank you to new friends who welcomed us. It was overwhelming and humbling to receive the support and love that we felt. Thank you for the advice, the road trips, the long talks, and more. We’ll treasure these memories. We carry your love–and a whole family of Godzillas (!) with us wherever we go. ¬†We hope to see you again soon.

    Great video! I love the family perspective of Japan. Somehow, I think of it as tons of highrises and crowded cities. Your trip was truly beautiful!
