After her travels she kindly updated us on her first experience in Japan.
While in the Kyoto area she visited many popular tourist destinations: The Golden Pavilion, Nishiki Market, Gion District, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and Kiyomizu Temple. She was even lucky enough to make a trip to Osaka where she visited Dotonbori (famous for its plethora of delicious foods) and Universal Studios Japan (USJ). Out of all the wonderful places she went to, Fushimi Inari was her favorite! If you don't already know, Fushimi Inari was featured in the film Memoirs of a Geisha.
Aside from the great sights and the delicious food, Ibtissam was surprised to find just how kind and polite Japanese people are. We have to agree with her that the omotenashi (hospitality) every visitor receives here in Japan is second to none.
Lastly, Ibtissam mentioned just how grateful she was for Bento&co to provide her with an opportunity to make her dreams come true. It is truly a pleasure knowing that we could contribute to your happines!
Thank you for sharing with us all your amazing story, Ibtissam! We hope to see you again in Japan soon and look forward to what new beautiful bentos you will create! Mata ne~!
