JAPAN WITH AIRBNB
I LOVE JAPAN! I love it so much that I was drawn to Osaka simply to see the Cherry Blossoms... yes, they bloom in America but I needed an excuse so here we are. As I was planning my trip I got an awesome experience to collab with Airbnb. I had a chance to stay in a cool apartment that was perfectly located and be a part of two Airbnb Experiences! Honestly, I had never paid attention to the Experiences tab of Airbnb but from now on I will. We took a cooking class and learned to make traditional Bento Boxes (quite delicious if I say so myself) and did a fun walking tour of the Hidden Gems of Osaka.
L10's Quick Tips
1. If you plan on traveling through other popular cities in Japan - like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka - I highly recommend getting the JR Pass. It's about $300 but worth it if you city hop.
2. Speaking of trains, the subway system throughout the major cities is awesome! The best way to get around in my opinion.
3. Take a cooking class! This was my first one ever and it was one of the best experiences I've had abroad.
4. Spring and Fall are the best times to hit Japan, so go when the season are changing!
