British couple Jamie Lafferty and Katy Morrison first came to Japan as part of the Travel Volunteer Project in 2011 in a bid to boost tourism numbers in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

The writer and photographer duo have been to over 100 countries, but within days of arriving Japan immediately became one of their favourites.
