Travel Pockets

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

We know planning and finding unique travel spots can be challenging. We’re here to help guide you on your next trip and share our itineraries and experiences. We love to find hidden gems and want our readers in on all the secrets so they can enjoy them too. We also take professional photos and video to inspire your next adventure. Plus, we love to share some fashion tips for our travel fashionistas!

One of our favorite places to visit is our hometown Japan, so we have a ton of useful information for first-time travelers to Japan. We also traveled around the entire country of Iceland and share some useful tips on how to see the Northern Lights and more. Want some travel fashion tips? We’ve got that too!
