I’m contemplating on whether or not to do a full update on my trip to Japan, mostly because there is too much to cover and I hate leaving things out. Overall the trip was amazing and Emili is a great travel buddy, which I already realized when we did our small trip to Pullman together. Is she sick of me yet? who knows lol, I harassed the hell out of that girl though.
If you check out my Flickr, you’ll see that I’ve updated the photos! So far its from days 1-8, and I’ll add the rest of the days , food pics, plus photos of Em and I ASAP. Most of the photos I posted aren’t my favorites, but I wanted to share with everyone all the wonderful places I went to and saw. =)
Here are some of the photos!
This is a photo inside of a vintage book store in Shibuya called “Flying Books” owned by Em’s cousin Kazuhiro. Even with his busy life he had time to take us out and show us around town. This man is absolutely amazing and I have no idea how to return the favor to him for all of his kindness. Even though it is a vintage book store, it is one of the hippest book stores I’ve ever seen. He holds events from poetry readings, live performances to even parties. If you ever visit Shibuya, this place is a must!
Yamanote Line: I love this mode of transportation
Kamogawa Grand Hotel
The first stages of a rice field lol
Overall the trip was better than I could have ever imagined. I honestly think I am one of the most fortunate souls in this entire world. Em-me-lie, if you read this, thank you thank you thank domou arigatou gozaimasu! I have no idea how to repay you or say enough thanks to you or your family, but in the mean time, while I scheme up a plan on how to give thanks, please know that I am truly grateful.
