Hello everyone, we are Chris and Hitomi
And with our son Rei, we have created this blog We Travel Together
Through our travel blog, we hope to inspire you to get out there and travel. If we can do it then you can. Travel doesn’t have to be expensive. It could be a weekend in the countryside, a city escape, a couple of hours from your home. Then there is the more expensive but rewarding two week trips. We will cover all this and more in our blog. So what are you waiting for pack your bags and explore, the world is waiting for you.
This blog is not about us, it is for you. If we have inspired you to travel, we would love to hear from you. Maybe you could share your life long memories of wandering on the deserted beach, walking through the hustle and bustle of the local markets, the aroma of the wonderful meal that you ate, Floating down the canals on a gondola through Venice. What ever your memories are our readers would love to read them.

Where Have We Been?
Together we have been to 20 countries in the regions of Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania and we continue to travel together every year. Our son has been exposed to the world from the age of 1 and he loves to travel as much as us. The travel bug has hit our family.

I’m a travel addict, who wants nothing more than to get on a plane and explore a new country. Over my life I have done a bit of everything from working in an ammunition factory, yes I can’t believe I never managed to blow that place up. I’ve done recycling runs bar tended and am now living and teaching in Japan where I have been for the last 14 years.
I was never good at studying, always concentrating on sports but eventually I went to college in Melbourne where I shared a house with a group of Japanese students who were studying English. Being in a house where the primary language wasn’t English transformed me into wanting to explore the world. So that is exactly what I did.
I’m just a regular person, so if I can travel then you can.
I’m the woman who whispered to Chris ” that he was the best bar tender in Japan”. That was kind of a mistake as we have been inseparable ever since. Together not only did we discover our love for each other but also the love of discovering the world.
Being Japanese, it is hard to get vacation time. I have however fought the system believing that we are entitled to our annual leave. If we have earned it, then we should be able to use it.
I’m a devoted wife and mother who enjoys cooking. When travelling I love to eat, whether it be fine dining or eating from the street stalls. After returning home those dishes soon appear on the kitchen table.
Bon Appetite and remember if I can travel, then you can.

I may only be 10, but I know I want to be a soccer player. Why do I want to be a soccer player? Well the answer is easy, not only do I get to play soccer but I will also get to travel the world. You better watch out Messi cause here I come.
When I’m not playing soccer or traveling, then I’m at school. I may not be the best at math or science. From traveling, I have learnt a lot about the world, its history and geography and this shows in the classroom, where I really ACE those lessons.
Come on parents take your kids traveling. It will be a great experience.
Remember if I can travel, then you can.
From Chris, Hitomi and Rei,
Thank you for taking the time to read We all travel together.
