Here’s a quick update and some photos from our family vacation here in Tokyo.
It’s been real fun so far & I’m so happy that I get to show them around places that I also enjoy.
Ever since, my parents have always been hardworking and busy at work…. so this trip really means a lot to all of us. I still do not know how this trip came possible (to save up for the three of us seemed impossible omg) but I strongly believe that there was a divine intervention along the way. Haha!
I’m planning on making a more “descriptive” blog entry in the future but for now, these will do! ; )
Wore kimono and strolled around Asakusa. It was their first time to experience this! 💕
Read my Kyoto Kimono Rental Wargo experience at their Sensoji branch here!
Yesterday night, out of impulse, I made a line blog. It’s for my Nihongo practice! 頑張ります！
Sharing shiba inu and cat cuteness ~
Hobonichi-ing during the trip!
Here are some photos from my everyday life! Enjoy the entry ~
Gave myself a treat and ate this matcha roll cake from Nana’s!

Finally got to redeem my stationery haul gift from Justin! Thank youuu Jazuuu!
Finally had some time to blog about this~! I’m so happy, yaaaay!
If you haven’t watched it yet, I uploaded this Hobonichi With Me video last week I think.
If you are visiting Tokyo this sakura season and you’re interested in renting a kimono, I found a great kimono rental shop that you might want to check out. I discovered this on my own while asking google for help so.. to those who are wondering, this is not a sponsored post. Haha!
Before I write about my experience, let me share these photos of the matcha parfait from Denny’s before Lirei & I went on a kimono date.
okay let’s move on now lol
I booked through their website to reserve the day before. I’m not really sure if walk-in visits are allowed but I think that the shop gets really busy so it’s best to reserve online so you can get your preferred time.
Standard Kimono Plan = 3500 -> 2900 (discounted)
Standard Hairdo = 900
All in all, Lirei & I just paid 3800 JPY each. What a reasonable price for an excellent service! I suggest that you also try getting your hair professionally done. : )
If you buy a kimono set and all, it costs a LOT so renting is always the more affordable option. 😉
(though I’d love to own my own kimono set one day, haha. gambarimasu lol)
They also have photography services and other cool stuff so just roam around their website for more info 🙂
If you are going to Kyoto too, they have many kimono rental shops available. I haven’t tried their services in Kyoto yet though.
