And here are a few more photos from our trip, where we explored the Taipei 101, Wulai Waterfall, Four Beast Mountain Hike, Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Park, Taipei Confucius Temple, and more!

The never-ending skyline is the first thing you’ll notice when landing in Hong Kong (along with a heavy layer of smog!). But in between the skyscrapers are a ton of attractions to see in this great metropolis, including Victoria Peak (the highest point on Hong Kong Island), the lively Tsim Sha Tsui and Temple Street Night Market, the historical Man Mo Temple, and the longest escalator in the world. Here’s a recap of our brief stop in Hong Kong.

After the hectic pace of Tokyo, Big and Small made our way down to the southern island of Kyushu to enjoy the relaxing onsen life in the hot spring town of Beppu. Here’s a quick recap of our time exploring the hells and hot springs:
From Beppu, we headed back north to the island of Honshu to take in the quiet and stunning coastline of Gobo and Shirasaki in Wakayama Prefecture. We spent over two weeks in the area, running, biking, walking along the untamed black sand beach, touring Gobo’s Dodo-ji Temple, and getting our fill of an excellent Italian-style ramen at Ramen Birdman. Here’s a short video of our adventures in Wakayama:
