Herro everyone ~ I haven’t posted in foreverr because I have been so busy planning my trip to Japan, going to Japan, and coming back ! I finally found time to take a look at all my pictures that I have organized by day to post ! I will be posting about each day when I was in Japan !
The plane tickets to go to Tokyo in July was insanely cheap ! ! ! They were under $1000 without service fee and tax and only a little more then $1000 with those extra charges added ! I originally wanted to go to Korea but because of the MERS outbreak I changed my mind, and my heart was set when I saw that the plane flight tickets were so cheap !
My trip to Japan was spontaneous and planned in little over 3 weeks ! It was the funnest trip I’ve ever been on overseas so far and I am so excited to save up to go again !
My boyfriend dropped me and my sister off at LAX, we came so early that we had to wait for the people from baggage claim to open.. while we were waiting he gave me his hat to take to Japan with me ~ ~ If you follow me on instagram you would’ve seen me wear it a couple times because I love it ! !
While walking towards our terminal me and my sister were amazed to see how renovated LAX has gotten! We haven’t traveled overseas in over 6 years and way back then LAX wasn’t the nicest airport . . . now it’s so pretty just look at that galaxy in the middle of nowhere *w* We of course took our nikes with us on our plane flight ! I’m wearing my favorite Nike Air Force and she’s wearing her Nike Cortez !
The next picture you can click on the items I am wearing to shop, sorry you can’t click on my hat though kekekee
Before lifting off, me and my sister wanted to eat dinner at the airport since we were scared of airplane food ! There’s an Umami Burger in LAX so we got burgers from there ~ Since we flew Economy we had to wait foreverr to be able to board the plane ! But I don’t mind ! I’d rather pay economy then a ridiculous amount for just one plane flight ~ How about you ? ?
Here’s how my table space looked haha ! It consisted of a carry on mini bag full of skincare necessities – makeup remover wipes, face cleansing cloths, face wash, toner, serum, and moisturizer ! I came prepared since my friend who went there a week earlier then us said her skin broke out during the plane flight ! And of course I needed to chew gum while we were lifting off to prevent our ear drums from hurting !
This is what my sister got – a sandwhich, banana, and milano cookies ! I ordered a soba meal but I forgot to take a picture ! It wasn’t so bad… i mainly ate the cookies ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAfter doing my skincare routine I took extra care of my skin by applying a face mask on board too ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ! ! ! It felt really nice you should definitely bring a face mask on board with you next time you fly ~~The sky was so beautiful when I woke up and looked out of the window ! ! We were super close to Japan at this time ~
I thought this snap was pretty cool because you can see the airplane hanger ㅋㅋㅋ ~ If you are flying to Tokyo, you should ALWAYSS land in Haneda and NOT Narita ! Because Narita is hourssss away from Tokyo whereas Haneda is only 40 minutes away ! To get to Shibuya where we were staying, we decided to take a Airport Limousine bus ! Since we landed at 5 AM, there was NO traffic and it literally took us 15 minutes from Haneda to Shibuya ! I really recommend going on the Airport Limousine bus if you don’t have so much luggage ! Even so, the station worker helps you carry your luggage on the bus for you ~
Here is a snap of the inside of our Shibuya apartment for 2 weeks ! I actually didn’t get much pictures of the inside… this is the only one I got of it ㅋㅋㅋ ! But I LOVED this place ! It was such an amazing apartment to stay in and I will definitely come back here to live again next time I go to Japan ! You can check out the apartment I stayed at HERE ! ! If you’re looking for a apartment to stay in Shibuya, you should definitely check out Ayami’s apartment ! It has all the amenities you would need to live- washer, dryer, shower, restroom, bed, air conditioning, fridge, and etc ! We lived so comfortably here and it was soooo close to Shibuya 109 and the train station ! Ayami is a very helpful host as well, we had such a great experience with her !
Right underneath our apartment is a Lawson which is a Japanese convenience store ! We literally survived off of onigiris from here for 5 days by our choice because they were so cheap and delicious ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ! ! ! ! First thing after dropping our luggages off at our apartments, showering, and changing we went to eat ! We were starvinggg and our first choice was to eat at a Segafredo ! It was a poor choice though, we both ordered pasta which tasted more like asian noodles then italian but that’s to be expected because we are in asia ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ since then we strayed away from american type foods ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAfter eating, we headed to Shibuya 109 ! We are in the elevator and the next pictures are outside of the elevator ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
My trip to Japan was made even funner because I had friends there too ! We met with my friend Steph and her boyfriend Charles ! They taught us to use the metro and trains and took us around
At Tokyo Skytree, me and my sister fell in LOVEEEEEEEE with PUNYUS !!!!!!! We’ve been to multiple PUNYUS stores but the one at Tokyo Skytree had the most selection ! If you love PUNYUS too you NEED to go to the Tokyo Skytree store – the Shibuya 109 one is so small it will make you cry in comparison to the one at Tokyo Sky Tree ! We literally bought from PUNYUS 3x during our trip ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
If you are looking for Rilakumma goodies, Tokyo Sky Tree has a really big Rilakkuma store !!!!
I love how crepes are literally everywhere in Japan ! ! ! Our next destination was Akihabara !!!!!! I LOVE AKIHABARA !!!!! We literally went 4x during our trip ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ! I am such a big weeb ! I’ve come to loveee anime so much lately !!!! I mean i’ve even picked up cosplaying too ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I took this picture to send to my boyfriend because we bought the same Evangelion Nanderoid at Anime Expo ! There was so much UFO catchers here but we didn’t play anyy because it’s too hard to carry back so many toys ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠThen we went to the Bape Store in Shibuya because my sister really wanted to go ! We spent a lot of money there ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠI loveeeee these stairs at the Bape Store though !! They are so pretty ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ They even have rotating shoes ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
To end the day, we met up with my friend Aimee and we all went to my apartment to hang out ! ! ! Our apartment had these cute plushies ! And we put my Kakao Talk selfie stick to good use ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ !
Well that was my first day in Japan ! ! Hope you had fun reading about my experience ! !
