Arriving - 2014

Hey everyone! We have arrived safely in Japan, I still can't believe it. Feels so surreal! The flight was fine, it seemed to go more quickly than my other trips.

We arrived in Japan at 8am so it is like I've been awake for 2 days or something so I'm shattered!
First thing I did when I got here was buy Fanta Grape from the vending machine haha, I love this stuff. Travelling from the Airport to Osaka despite being so tired was still amazing. Japan's urban landscape is really beautiful! All the houses are really different from each other. I just like how it's set up.
Also, another thing that always amazes me is how much strangers are willing to help you! Within 5 mins of standing around trying to find out where our Hotel was, a kind salaryman said he'd take us there on his way to work! So we were taken directly there, would have been hard to find.
This hotel is cool, Yodabashi Camera is on my doorstep and it's close to Hep 5. While we waited to checkin, we went to a Hep 5 and I felt so ming since everyone is dressed nice! But I did purikura with my Mum, she was totally baffled by the whole thing but she gave it a go haha. We played on the Maimai machine and my arcade card still works!

Anyway, finally resting up in the hotel. Fell asleep for a bit, but next step is to find Family Mart!
See ya~

Japan Next Week!

Back again!

Well next week I'll be in Japan again - my 3rd time! It has actually come around again so soon! I can't believe I'll be going back, I think I'll cry when I touch down in Japan.

This time I feel like my Japanese has improved quite a bit, so hopefully I'll be able to speak to people a little more and feel more confident doing so. Because I keep flaking and not studying properly I haven't progressed very quickly but hopefully the 2 weeks in Japan will help that!

This time I'm going to visit some different places, like Hiroshima, Nara, Nikko and maybe Yokohama. This time, my Mum and two little brothers will be coming with me so the experience will be different! I'm really looking forward to showing them Japan though because they know how much I love it so it'll be good for them to see why.

I'll be updating my blog everyday like I did the last time I was in Japan or I'll try to because it does get quite busy at times!

I'll be in Japan a little longer, it's not quite two weeks, it's more like 17 days. So much to see and do, I can't wait <3

See you next time!
