This time there were four of us: Olga, our 10-months old son Lev, myself and our friend Nikolay.

We decided to go to the country of our dreams – Japan!

Japan has multiple clear seasons and we have chosen the beginning of autumn. It wasn’t that colorful like it could have been later in November, but it was warm and very comfortable to see all the magic of this country.

We’re sure to go back there to see all four seasons.
