The Miles' Adventure in The Land of the Rising Sun

The Miles' Adventure in The Land of the Rising Sun - Honeymoon registry Japan There are few drawbacks to having an extra-long long-term relationship, but one of them is that as you plan a wedding you realize that over the years together you have already collected all of the bits and pieces that come together to create a home as a couple.

We are also terrible at being patient and waiting for an excuse like a holiday (or birthday) to pick up something we need (and this is why Jen tears her hair out every Christmas trying to find a gift for Trevor).

So, long story short, the only thing we really need (besides having a good excuse to hang out with friends and family) is some time away from the everyday grind that can wear you down and sometimes make you forget the beauty of your relationship and the world.

It has been a long while since we have taken a trip, just the two of us, and we are excited to have an opportunity to have another grand adventure. We want to see what Japan has to offer and just spend some time doing something out of the ordinary.

So we are asking for some help to make our dream come true and maybe have a few more adventures than we could have had without your support.

Just check the box next to any gifts you wish to purchase, then click the 'Purchase' button at the bottom of the page. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

Ghibli Museum
Since we are geeks of the Otaku (anime-loving) variety, our trip would not be complete without a stop at the Studio Ghibli Museum. And yes, Jen will probably bring back a big stuffed Totoro because reasons.

Fuji-Q Highland amusement park
Fuji-Q Highland amusement park
Why take boring pictures of Mount Fuji from the ground when you can get a much better view from the top of a roller coaster? That is, if Jen can drag Trevor away from Evangelion World...

Zao Fox Village
Zao Fox Village
We know how much Jen loves fuzzy cute things...and foxes are right near the top of the list. Japan has a whole village dedicated to the rescue and preservation of these adorable mammals, so we want to visit and see the "village where foxes roam free"

Could there be anything more fun for Mario Kart fans than driving your own kart around Tokyo? No, we didn't think so either...this gift would include the passes and costumes...but we probably need to supply our own red shells. :)
