On a recent business trip to Japan, I took with me, the TWELVElittle Courage Tote in grey. We may have designed it as a baby bag, but for me, it was the best travel bag!
It is the perfect carry on size, whether placing it under the seat or in the overhead compartment. Best of all, it fit my 15" laptop!
This being my second trip to Japan, I still get culture shock walking around Tokyo. The infamous 'Tokyo Street Style,' is a paradise for design inspiration. Yes, it is a bit kookie-kabooki (zero idea if that's a real word), but it's just fashion you would never see in any other major city.
I stayed in Shibuya at the Cerulean Towers, great hotel and probably one of the few hotels with large rooms. It was close to everything, including the subway. Though a bit intimidating at first, it was super easy to access and use their subway system, and very clean!
Every travel venture is partnered with fashion and.. FOOD. Yakitori skewers, ramen, soba noodles, sushi on a conveyor (completely legit!). I am a huge fan of ramen so being in Japan for only four days, it was a staple in my diet. (Stateside, my favorite go-to ramen places are: Mitsuwa in NJ or Ippudo, Totto or Sapporo, in NYC.)
My next trip to Japan, I hope to visit an onsen (hot springs), but that will have to be through a personal journey. Enjoy the photos! And remember to take your TWELVElittle bag with you when you travel, it's the perfect size, for any traveler on-the-go!
