After months and months of planning and discussing, I'm going to Japan again after exams are over. It'll be my first trip back in nearly 8 years, so I`m looking forward to it very much. More importantly, it means that I'll be able to spend some time with my cousin and aunt. The second leg of this trip takes me back home to Shanghai. I can't believe that it`s been 18 months since my last visit, so also looking forward to that.
I remember quite a few things from my last trip to Tokyo. Admittedly, I was far too young to appreciate the culture. This time, I just want to relax and enjoy spending some time with my family. Also, I definitely want to experience Japanese cuisine. Interestly enough, I understand that there's quite a vibrant French cuisine scene in Tokyo, so we'll absolutely be visiting a French restaurant. And finally, the Japanese have quite an interesting relationship with French wine. I'm very excited to see for myself. After all, I did buy futures from a Bordeaux Chateau owned by Suntory, Chateau Lagrange.
We'll also be spending some time in Shanghai. But that trip is completely family-oriented, as there are several things to take care of there. Just being in my hometown will be enough.
