While I was on winter hols we took a day trip to Odawara to see the castle there, which is one of the only (or the only) in the greater Tokyo area. It was really interesting to see a Japanese castle as obviously we are spoilt for choice with them in Europe, but they differ a lot in Japan. Disappointingly the inside of the castle is just a museum rather than set up how the castle would actually be lived in, but it was still pretty amazing to see. I also made a little vlog of the day above if you want to check it out. Plus Odawara is by a bay so we went for a wander on the beach at the end of the day, pretty amazing! xx

Well it looks gorgeous from the outside even if the inside is just a museum! I'm definitely having a craving for the ice cream now...

I think we're just spoilt for choice in the UK because most castles are decorated as if they were lived in, but still pretty interesting! And Japan's soft serve ice cream is just insane xx
