My Friend Alex Goes To Japan ~ A Clothing, City , and Food Adventure

So, when I found my friend Alex was going to Japan I commissioned her to Write about her trip and take photos. Did not really give her any parameters, just wanted to live vicariously through her for the trip. What she came up with is great.

Here you go….


Shocked About Japan
I want to live in Japan now.

Just a quick briefing; my name is Alex and my life pretty much consists of working, going to school, big city dreaming, and anime. Jeremy, my boyfriend, and I didn’t really plan on taking a trip across the world, but the only things that pushed us were that our tickets were round trip from LAX to Japan, under five hundred dollars, and this deal was to expire in an hour from when we found out. We obviously took it.
I chose Japan because aside from being born there, I just love how beautiful the scenery is. We were out there for a good six days for our spring break. Perfect timing for the cherry blossoms. Japan has always been a day-dream of mine. So to go on this trip was just a god sent. Tokyo lived up to my dreams and some, and I completely fell in love with this city. I can’t wait to book my next ticket and experience more of this remarkable city.
Get ready to go on a scroll party. This one’s going to be an adventure!

 Our welcome to Shibuya.
Editor note ~ Shibuya (渋谷) is one of the twenty-three city wards of Tokyo, but often refers to just the popular shopping and entertainment area found around Shibuya Station.

Ghibli Museum. (We couldn’t take pictures inside) *sighs*

Editors note~ The Ghibli Museum (三鷹の森ジブリ美術館 Mitaka no Mori Jiburi Bijutsukan?, Mitaka Forest Ghibli Museum) is a museum showcasing the work of the Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli. It is located in Inokashira Park in Mitaka, a western city of Tokyo, Japan. The museum combines features of a children’s museum, technology museum, and a fine arts museum, and is dedicated to the art and technique of animation.

 Shopping and #OOTD fun in the city.
Closed out our Tokyo trip with tons of shopping. Our trip was such an incredible eye opener to experiencing new things that we plan on going every year. Thanks for scrolling through my vacation.
