After approximately 3+ days of sitting in airplanes and sitting in airports, we're back from an amazing trip.
Japan is beautiful. It is so well maintained and so clean. Everyone is super duper nice, especially my sister Sarah and her family who hosted us. We can't thank them enough for letting us come visit and stay in their house. They went way out of their way to take us places and to feed us and to make us comfortable. They did a great job! It was wonderful being able to visit with her 5 sons and 1 daughter, and of course her and her husband. We are so grateful we have the opportunity to travel while we're young. We miss Japan and want to go back! I don't have a bad thing to say about that place. It was a wonderful visit.

Here is a video we made with some pictures of the trip. If you like cheese, you'll like this.
