    I thought Shibuya was bad

    December 24, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    So for reference, Shibuya station in March was bad because of all the construction and it's a main station with multiple lines so obviously lots of people lots of confusing signs etc etc

    Shinjuku is worse lol

    Took me a while to find the gate I wanted, which wasn't really marked either so I had to recruit help from the JR staff 😭Read more

    Very relaxing walk

    December 24, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    So I've never come to this park because it's 500 yen to get in and I'm like whatever it's just a park

    Today I went anyway because I'm determined to have a chill day and urban sketching in a park sounds like a great idea

    I can see how it would be super nice when the weather is a little warmer, though I feel like everyone in the pan is a tourist lolRead more

    Ready to go

    Surprisingly everything fit. I feel like this suitcase is great but I'll take the credit for the hard work anyway 😎

    One last shopping trip!

    December 23, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    So I basically spent the entire time picking up trinkets and small souvenirs (I don't do big gifts), but the last stop had to be at Don Quijote (the MEGA one). I filled up maybe 3/4 of a basket thinking that it was not that much and I still had plenty of space, but by the time they had wrapped it up I started to panic LOL

    I also never knew that face masks were so heavy???

    In Shibuya, they light up this street of trees with blue lights just for the holidays. Turns out everyone's all just camping until the lights turn on
