We wanted to dedicate this day for Ikebukuro only, but since we have more free time in the morning (or so we thought), we added a destination to our itinerary. We rode the Tokyo Metro and headed to Ueno Park and Ueno Zoo! Afterward, we ate… a lot. We visited many attractions in Ikebukuro, which involved food, and we didn’t regret it. In fact, we were so full that we didn’t need dinner lol.
Happy New Year! January passed by so fast, I sort of panicked lol. I have many things to write for this month, but I tried to minimize them and shared only the ones I think are important—like me moving to a new place, playing new games, watching ONE OK ROCK’s concert, attending rehearsals again, etc.
Day 2 of our Japan, and with proper sleep! It was tiring yesterday, so we decided to only have three items in our itinerary and stayed in one area—Shibuya. We had our lunch at Touken Ranbu x 2.5D Cafe in Harajuku, roamed around Omotesando, visited Meiji Shrine, and watched Shimono Hiro’s birthday live at NHK Hall. On our way home, we got sidetracked at a store and our budget is thanking us for not buying anything (although I’m so tempted!).
Before the year ends, I’d like to get started on my overdue Japan posts. When I came back to the PH, I blogged the important ones and thought I shouldn’t write about my trip in detail anymore. When I browsed through my photos, however, I realized that there’s still a lot to say during my 10-day trip… so here it goes lol.
For our first day, we were kinda groggy because we got an early morning flight. Not to mention that we went straight to our destinations instead of resting at our accommodation upon arrival. We went to Asakusa to visit Senso-ji, Akihabara for the Yuri!!! on ICE x Adores Cafe collaboration, and Marunouchi Picadilly at Ginza for the live viewing of Yuri!!! on Stage.
It’s finally the last of the ber months and things are getting busier. There’s traffic everywhere and I had to attend parties and get-togethers. Well, the month wasn’t that bad except for that unexpected news.
