    Tokyo: Allergies, Yasukuni Shrine, Chiyoda Park

    My travel backlog is getting out of hand! This is my attempt to restart a documentation of my trip to Tokyo last March. I’d actually done up the photos for this post months ago, but accidentally deleted them thinking that I’d made a backup… I did not make a backup. Why do I always do this to myself. 😩 Anyway, this day in Tokyo was pretty memorable for me. I don’t often fall sick on vacation, but it just so happened that I’d gotten struck by something that led my allergies to go on overdrive, probably due to the turn down service at our new hotel the night prior.
