Back For The First Time

Back For The First Time

Ok, been a while since my last post…In between school, work and my extra curricular activities I really just didn’t want to make any updates to the website. Got a few things to brewing and lots to write…

Day 12 – Last Night in Japan

Day 12 – Last Night in Japan

Seeing how it is my last full day in Japan I took it very easy. I went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Building to see Tokyo from a 202 meter veiw. Unfortunately it was very cloudy and I was unable to get a good view of the city.

I said my farewells to what parts of the city I could see and returned to my room for some much needed packing!

I leave December 20th…*sigh*

Day 11 – Kagurazaka and Friendly Japanese

Day 11 – Kagurazaka and Friendly Japanese

I hiked on over to Kagurazaka today, it was a location suggested by my friends I made in Osaka.

It is a really quiet area, and the locals are so hospitable, like everywhere else in Japan.

I stopped by this small shop to pick up some house slippers. I mentioned that they were a present for my younger brother and the couple running the shop decided that they wanted to wrap the slippers for me. The husband got on his bike rode down the street to another shop bought some wrapping supplies and brought them back to his wife so she could wrap the slippers for me.

And this is a place I am voluntarily leaving….I must be going mad.
