I don’t think I’ve ever disguised my love of Japan…I love it’s food and culture. Recently I was lucky enough to return for the third time to see the sights, taste the delights and enjoy some cultural inspiration.
My first trip to Japan was to visit our Head Bear Handler Clare, whilst she was working there way back in 2005. This is where I got my first taste of Japan and love of travel. We experienced great food, explored cities, remote towns and even climbed Mount Fuji…It was a truly great trip and a place I had always wanted to return to. I was lucky enough to get back there again last year for my honeymoon, where I experienced the beautiful nature and powdery soft snow in Niseko. Again, I felt I wanted to go back, so we booked in another trip back to Niseko and explored the beautiful cities of Hiroshima, Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo.
Again, I have come back truly excited and inspired by their weird and somewhat wacky designs and visual communication tools that Japan uses as part of their advertising and marketing of products. I love their use of characters and animation and how widely used Hello Kitty is used throughout the regions of Japan.
As always, we like to keep you up-to-date with what we do in and out of the studio, so I thought I’d share a few holiday snaps! See below:
