#Japanspiration: Instagrammer of the Month

Today we launch a brand new blog feature: Instagrammer of the month, where we'll be photos from some of our favourite Instagram followers.  We kick off our first feature with @breezyinkyoto ~ aka Japan fan Brianna Lawson, from the USA.  A first timer in Japan, Brianna opted to visit some of Japan's most popular cities; Tokyo, Kyoto, Hakone, Osaka and Nara.  These are great choices if you're heading to Japan for the first (or the tenth) time, as the transport links are excellent.  You can whizz down to Kyoto from Tokyo on the shinkansen (bullet train) and can easily visit Osaka and Nara as day trips from Kyoto.  Hakone is an onsen (hot spring) town where a stay in a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) is popular, and is also a good base to explore the Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashinoko area.

'Japan was an incredible experience and I urge anyone that is curious about the country to make a trip there! You will have a lot of beautiful memories if you do.'
