Tanabata Festival at Tokyo Disneyland! 🎋

Hi everybody!

Aki and I had some time off earlier this month. Last summer, we visited Tokyo Disneysea. This time, we explored around Disneyland during the day!

Dumbo has always been one of my favorite Disney characters (Top 1: Winnie The Pooh) lol ~

It was so delightful to see the newly-renovated “it’s a small world” attraction!

I rarely go to Harajuku now as I often prefer quiter places in Tokyo / Saitama but it also felt refreshing to go back to the place I used to frequent to. Harajuku has changed a lot, haha.
