Photos from Gomer Santos
When your partner loves animé, you would do anything in support of his or her admiration for it. From collecting memorabilia to watching all shows, from memorizing all the names of the characters to taking a trip to the spots as seen in those shows, nothing will ever come between you to achieve your idea of fun.

Take this couple, for instance. Netizen Gomer Santos and his fiancée took photos of popular tourist spots during their trip to Japan, which happen to appear in the latter’s favorite animé shows, such as Kotonoha No Niwa (Garden of Words), Genshiken, and Detective Conan Episode 594 and 595, among others.
Kimi no Na wa (Your Name), Suga Shrine, Tokyo
Mr. Santos posted his photos in a page for avid travelers in Facebook, and they immediately caught my attention. All of his photos of expectation versus reality were fail-proof, and this idea of awesomeness unlocks one of our #travel goals.
