Blog’s best of 2016!


It’s that time of year again when I round up my favourite things that found their way onto Sophie’s Japan Blog this year! Blog-wise, I think 2016 has been a busy and exciting year. World politics-wise, I’d say not so much. I hope 2017, 2018 and the years to come will be kind to everyone…

I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who follows my blog, all the wonderful companies who supplied fantastic prizes and the events who invited me along as press!

Below are 2016’s winners and runners-up, with links to their very own blog posts. So, you can catch up on any posts you missed!
