Turning Japanese

**By the time I wrote this, in September, this blog post was already outdated as I visited Japan during my summer vacation in August. For some reason I never got round to posting it…until now. Behold! A post about my trip to Tokyo, five months late.**

If you’ve learned anything about me by reading this blog, chances are it’s that I am incredibly behind when posting about events in my life. If you’re still reading this blog you probably don’t care though, and for that I am glad. Here’s another belated post for your perusal….don’t expect anything groundbreaking, it’s pretty much just a day to day account of my summer holiday.


Journeying in Japan… Part 2, Tokyo

After the culture of Kyoto we boarded the bullet train to Tokyo. Bullet trains are fast. The KTX in Korea is quick but the bullet trains, especially the Nozomi, (The Japanese have six kinds of bullet train) are rapid. It takes a mere two hours and twenty minutes to travel the 462.8km from Kyoto to Tokyo. So little a distance the Japanese couldn’t be bothered to rename the cities properly and just shuffled the letters around.


5 Awesomely Awesome Things: Accessories Edition

 I have never been one to wear tons and tons of jewelry, but recently it seems I've been stocking up on some really cute things both in Korea, and in Japan.

Even thought I wasn't there very long, and I loved everything I saw, I will say my favorite place in Tokyo was hands-down Harajuku.  While I was there, I bought some awesome accessories and wanted to share the cuteness.  The majority of today's Awesomely Awesome Things I found in Harjuku, and some other things along the way.

Japan: An Update

Hello JAPAN!  So I've been in Japan for about a day and it is great!  I have a free moment before I head over to the national museum.  I wen to Harajuku today and seriously, it's way cooler than even Gwen Stefani makes it seem.  Yes there giant Forever 21's and American Eagle shops, but the little small shops full of cute/weird/nerdy awesome things were amazing.  As of right now (and I haven't seen that much so it's not a grand assessment, but right now it is my favorite place in Tokyo.

I also got to see the base of Mt. Fuji from the train up to Tokyo, saw a huge firework festival with what felt like all of Tokyo.  Things are big and moving fast here, but I'm having a great time and meeting really nice people.  I'm really excited to write pages and pages full of stuff -with pictures-when I get back.


From Tokyo with Harajuku Love,
