Hello and thank you for visiting our registry website.

Ryan and I love to travel. We couldn't be more excited for a honeymoon as we will use any excuse to get on a plane.

We don't need more "stuff." Thankfully this option exists as an alternative to china that we will never use.

Japan is a natural choice for us as a honeymoon. When we first met (again), it was thrilling to discover that our favorite show is the relatively obscure Japanese anime "Bleach", and that we share a love for tea, sake, and minimalism. Exploring Japan is high on our list so this is the perfect opportunity.

We are so excited to run around Tokyo and get lost in the rural coastal towns. For us, sleeping in traditional Ryokans and visiting temples from the samurai period is romantic.

Thank you for visiting our page. We are so thrilled that you will be part of our marriage celebration. We will update our page to show the places we visited and how your gift contributed to our honeymoon.

With love,
Jackie and Ryan
