I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to Japan as part of a dance tour called ‘Women of Ireland’. I was delighted to be asked to represent Ireland abroad as a modern and sean-nós dancer and also to visit one of the countries I’m most interested in.

Over the course of the tour, which stretched from Fukuoka to Sapporo, I tasted some pretty amazing food, met the loveliest of people and saw some unforgettable towns and cities.

I find there’s no better way of describing a trip than through images so hopefully my Instagram diary will express my love for the country better than words. Arigatou gozaimasu!
