Hello Everyone!

This registry is to help support our dream honeymoon & first adventure together as husband & wife. We have been together for 8 years, have a quirky pug (Swagger), & already live in a sweet apartment. Many items on a traditional registry, house goods, the we already own. So this travel registry will help to support our dream to travel the globe together--to JAPAN! You get to choose what we do on their honeymoon. Will we sing karaoke? See sumo wrestling? Dine at a ninja restaurant? It's up to you!

As thanks for funding this great trip, you will receive a personalized thank you card and photos of the experience you provided us and our honeymoon in Japan!

Love,
Ginny & Miles

We're going to Japan (Tokyo)!

Why Japan?
1. It's a futuristic, friendly, and fun culture
2. Tech & gadget innovation (Miles is psyched)
3. Castles, shrines, & temples
4. Manga & Anime (Ginny's a HUGE fan)
5. Samurai & Ninjas.... yes please :D
6. Exciting food bucket list items: Sushi, Sake, ramen, pocky.... i could go on forever...
7. Karaoke bars
8. Meet Geisha
9. Natural Hot Springs
10. Amazing Themed Cafes-- Puppy, Maid, Cat, Gundam...ect.

We would travel in 2017, for our 10-year anniversary together!

Traveling to Japan will embody our adventurous, playful & bold relationship. We first met 2007 at an Anime (Japanese cartoons) convention & now we would travel to the country where Anime was born. This honeymoon represents how much we want to explore, learn, and grow together as husband & wife :)

One night at a hotel in Tokyo. After a long day on our feet seeing the sites, we'll need somewhere to crash. Getting a hotel room for us would be a huge help, but may keep us from finding Japanese friends who's couches are vacant.
