Kamakura!

About an hour away from Tokyo on train there a very nice place called Kamakura. This place is filled with temples and lots of tourist view locations. We didn’t visit them all but what we saw we enjoyed a lot, I had a caramelized strawberry, something I’ve never tried before. I even met an adorable cat in one of the temples with whom I spent some time with. ^^ It was a wonderful sunny day with great weather and I wish to re-visit Kamakura in the future.

Tokyo dome city!!

Whaa I’m so happy! Yesterday I’ve yet again visited a Sailor Moon location in real life! This time it was Tokyo dome city which was featured in the anime episodes 190 and 195. You can see into the Tokyo dome where many baseball matches and events are held and if it’s open when you ride the Ferris wheel in the theme park. It’s an amazing huge space with attractions. We enjoyed it so much and of course I couldn’t stop fangirling ^^;

Easter at JOYPOLIS!

Happy Easter everyone, I know I’m late but here are some pictures of our Easter day. We spent it in an attraction park that was actually inside of the Odaiba mall! It had 3 floors and is called JOYPOLIS. Inside there are 3 floors with different kinds of attractions, like small(but very fast) roller coaster, 3d flying/floatin experience and lots of games. Also there was a souvenir store which I took care of well ^^ But I won’t show what I bought (yet). After that we went to a buffet, then we went to another mall, “Lala-port” and bought some Easter themed doughnuts! …I also met Marilyn Monroe and drooled at some pastries during our visits between the malls.

Sunshine City Aquarium

Whoah! What a blast. We’ve visited an aquarium and a planetarium on the 9th floor of the building Sunshine City! It was huge, beautiful, and there were so many fishies. Not only that but they also put on a show when feeding the seals and the sea otters, the experience was unforgettable and I wish I would have come here earlier. This place is a must see for anyone who comes to Tokyo, it’s too amazing. Besides the aquarium they have a anime theme park on the 3rd floor, sadly we didn’t have time to visit it. They also had LOTS of restaurants and shopping on the other floors. In other words the building was busy.

I bought the sailor dress at one of my favorite stores here in japan, called World Wide Love! I won’t put any text any further in this post, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves! (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Ferris Wheel in Kasai Rinkai Park

Hii there! And sorry for the slow update but I’ve got studies to do too you know? 😉 Anyway! Here are the pictures from the day we went to the Ferris Wheel, the weather was great and i filmed a little with my phone. It was very calm and nice and in the end i met a wonderful kitty with whom i shared my takoyaki with :3. All in all it was a wonderful day and I wish to return here someday!

This is how it looks like near the train station, I wanted to ride the wheel but first we went to look around the area.

Some filming done here and there to remember the place ^^ A picture won’t really describe it all will it?

The area nearby smells like the sea and was huge with stones and sea shells, bugs and all. We didn’t spend much time there but it was still nice. ^^

Finally we get to ride the Ferris wheel~

I also met a hungry kitty, he was so sweet and friendly so I gave him some takoyaki that I had for lunch 🙂

Day 3 @ Inokashira Park Zoo

Yesterday was great! We went to a zoo with various animals ^^. They were all so adorable and in the end I even got to hold a guinea pig. For being tourists we got a 10% discount for the entrance which was nice, not that it was expensive to begin with, instead of 400 Yens each we paid 360. I love how most attractions and food in japan are so cheap! As a european you can expect to pay at least 50euros to visit a zoo in europe for example. The weather was amazing, a little hot now and then but we had drinks to cool down with, also there are vending machines and toilets everywhere!

So this is when we got out of the station after a long time of looking for the right train to go to the place ^_~.

What’s up with all the masks?

Something that I’ve only seen in Japan. Some people were wearing a mask! Well, it does look strange, but after I came to Japan I learned that it’s a very hygienic country. These face masks are worn by sick people to not spread their cold or whatever other virus they might be having. Besides that it’s also forbidden to blow your nose in public, and the train stations have signs that encourage everyone to cover their mouth while coughing. I find this to be so interesting and useful at the same time! Right now we have so many germs being spread everywhere in Europe for example. Also it’s kinda gross hearing people coughing and blowing their nose in public. Well done Japan!

Japanese Kitty!

So while being around the Hikawa Shrine area we also saw a random Japanese cat ^-^. It was too adorable, I wish I had one of those.  I think we spent at least one hour playing with it! It wasn’t really super friendly either, it was just sitting and waiting to be interacted with..

Hikawa shrine!

What? You thought I had died? Nononono. Let me tell you my pumpkins: I’ve actually been busy with work. Why yes I’ve been working for 2 weeks without any day off! Which also affected my studies for I have a lot to catch up on now. That Aside I’d like to let you guys know that I still have a lot of pictures  from Japan to post, I just haven’t found the time to post them yet <3. Right now I will show you some pictures from when me and prince visited the Hikawa shrine! Yes that temple from Sailor Moon. It was magical, like walking straight into a Sailor Moon episode!
