Kamakura’s Ajisai Gardens + Rainbowholic Shop Updates + Life Recently

Hi all!

Here’s my creative photo spam report of our Kamakura adventure last month. Many thanks to Yumiさん for helping me out with the videos and for all the inspiring conversations with you. :”)

Hope you guys enjoy the photo collages as much as I enjoyed making them. ^^

From Tokyo Station, it’s almost an hour away by JR Line (920 JPY for one way). For the directions using Google Maps, please click here.

Ride the JR Yokosuka Line bound for ZUSHI and get off at Kamakura station. You can explore the area by riding the buses or enjoy “Enoden”, their cute little train. Since this is a very touristy spot, there are many passengers riding this train.

I would recommend traveling to Kamakura during a weekday instead of a weekend. We went on a Friday and it was already super packed, what more if it was a weekend, omg lol ~

Before embarking on any adventure here, as a Japan travel fan, I would recommend that you visit the station’s tourist information booth as they have LOADS of free travel information especially in a place like Kamakura. We originally wanted to visit Meigetsu-in (Ajisai Temple) because of its famous ajisai pathway photo (for the love of #instagram lol). However, we thought it was located at Hasedera Temple since it’s also known for its blue & purple seas of Ajisai. Our target / main goal that day was to take a similar photo of that pathway but we had an interesting change of plans, as I have mentioned haha.

If you are planning to cover these two temples in one day during the next Ajisai season, I would suggest that you arrive earlier (maybe 10AM) and go straight to Meigetsu-in (Kita Kamakura) first to avoid the flock of local and foreign tourists. After that, have some quick lunch and ride the Enoden back at Kamakura station for Hasedera Temple. Upon entering the temple, go to the entrance and get a number and wait for your turn to queue. Don’t forget to hydrate yourself when exploring around Japan during summer! It was too hot that day, lolol.

During our 3rd day in Seoul, we decided to take a day trip to Petite France & Nami Island.

I’m a huge fan of Little Prince (like my friend Ashley!) & I remember seeing some clips of this beautiful place from a Korean Drama called “My Love from the Star“. Being able to visit this colorful pastel wonderland with Aki was truly memorable for me.

Before entering Petite France, we first ate lunch at the kombini located in front of it. I absolutely love people-watching while eating with this person lol.

And the non-stop “Take picture of me please~” requests started at this point lololol

Thank you stranger for helping us achieve my kdrama dream :))

Arrived at Incheon International Airport!

First night was such a test. I’m thankful for Aki for being able to convince me to just bring one backpack.. because our airbnb was so hard to find, lolol.

We also ate this extremely hot and spicy x 1000 chicken + cheese Korean food. (I already forgot, I’m sorry! If you know, please enlighten me?)

Never consumed so much water in my entire life, lol! Welcome to Korea, Kaila and Aki! :))

They have really cute snacks too! Pokemon and Ryan packaging~ omo ~
