The Uwajimaya market is located in Asia town in Seattle. The market itself is enormous with lots of Asian foods to try (baked goods, direct imports, fresh made food, etc). There’s a bookstore within the market as well called Kinokuiya that has a plethora of books (manga, language books, history books, etc) and goods (like washi tape, plus dolls, markers, notebooks, artwork, etc) inspired by or directly from Asia countries. It’s an amazing place to go and I wanted to just hand over my wallet to this place 🖤

Beautiful place to stop on a road trip. There's a lovely view and picnic area to stop and have a snack.

BEAUTIFUL!

This was the first waterfall I ever got to actually play in haha. You could climb up behind the falls to get some awesome pictures or just play in the little pool below it (the water is cold though and we went in August).

Be prepared to do a bit of climbing if you do go though. You don't have to hike or rock climb or anything like that to get to the falls, but you do have to do a bit of climbing over slanted rocks and over logs. Worth it though :)

The company is fantastic. We did get lost (twice) trying to find the check in so make sure to follow signs once you get into the park instead of the GPS. We took the Lower Yough trip and it was AMAZING. Absolutely beautiful scenery. Floating down the river was breath-taking and there's a train that runs nearby and it was really cool to see. The rapids on the Lower Yough are only about class 2-4 so that part of the river was enough to give us a taste of white water rafting without killing us haha.

They provide all of the equipment and, honestly, the staff were some of the nicest people I've met. They told us jokes the whole bus ride back to check in and pointed out awesome and beautiful spots within the park to visit (like Cucumber Falls).

A little side note if you plan on bringing a GoPro, they do have helmets with the mount already on it that you can use :)

Pictures were a little pricey, but overall I had a blast and would absolutely go back.

The people were so friendly! I had so many conversations with the devotees and learned so much. Also, we were able to have a free vegetarian lunch that was FANTASTIC! So yummy! It was under construction when we went, but it was still beautiful with plenty of photo opportunities!

Somehow we ended up walking through the trails to get to the falls only to find out that there was a parking lot RIGHT across from the falls. It was a very nice (albeit grueling uphill) walk, but the falls were a little disappointing after all that. It's not something you can walk up to, so I wouldn't suggest going too far out of your way to see these if you're really into adventure. All in all, they were very pretty to look at, but not worth the hour long hike.

Make sure to have a lot of camera space for photos. No matter who you are or what kind of device you use, you can take gorgeous pictures here! We walked around almost all day and still didn't see everything we wanted, nor did we take enough photos!

Stunningly gorgeous!!!! The people are kind and glad to share the history of the house or the history of any of the objects IN the house (there is A LOT of local art in the house. The dishes are even handmade).

The pool is amazing. The house is situated rather close to the road, but the backyard is SO covered with plants and flowers, you can't even tell. You truly feel in paradise.

The rooms are gorgeous and clean and the breakfast is fantastic. You get to pick what you would like from a variety of items and they make it right in the kitchen for you. You can sit around the table with other guests as well and it makes for some really nice conversations. I cannot rave about this place more.

Usually, aquariums are geared toward children. I had more fun here than most of the children around me. The stingray tank was easy to reach so smaller kids could actually reach them and a lot of the animals had personalities; one sting ray would actually flap water at us if we ignored him until we finally gave in and rubbed his back. You also get to feed the stingrays, which was an awesome experience. The hippo section was being remolded, so I was somewhat upset, but I did get to take a picture with a giant hippo statue. I would go there again in a heartbeat!
