James and I are travelling to Japan for the very first time in this backpacking adventure.
We will be travelling there for one month, starting in Tokyo and then using the Japan Rail Pass to explore the country.
The start of my 9 month round the world trip with my mate James begins with the pre-trip build up, before flying to Hong Kong for a few nights.
The major culture shock of China provides the first real challenge as we arrive for Chinese New Year before heading into the stunning countryside of Yangshou and the Longji Rice Fields.
1 month into our trip we arrived in Thailand.
Starting with the craziness of Khao San Road in Bangkok, they travel north to the jungles of Chiang Mai for some zip lining, elephant riding and more.
Following this they head way down to the southern islands to party in paradise including visiting the beach from The Beach.
