We had a quick forest bathing.

Breakfast in our airbnb. Made pancakes using the special Kyushu pancake mix!
How to go to Miyajima from JR Hiroshima station:
Take the JR Sanyo Line to Miyajimaguchi station. From that station, walk to the JR Ferry port and buy tickets.
I had been waiting for this day.
Last weekend, I was invited by Tokyo Sweets Project to do cafe-hopping together with Mochi Sucre.
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.

On the 3rd day of our trip, we went to Fukuoka by riding a bus from Nagasaki.
It was so cold and rainy that day.
Kombini food kept us alive for the days, haha
I like my breakfast simple and cheap!
Here’s a mini tour of our airbnb room!
Here’s my blog entry about Huis Ten Bosch, a.k.a. Nagasaki’s own Disneyland!
It’s such a colorful place so imagine my overflowing excitement for this day! Utter happiness, 皆さん！Hahaha!
After spending the night at Nagasaki, we woke up early to visit the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum.
I had many emotions after leaving the museum & exploring the Peace Park.
I felt sad upon learning and seeing the results of war / the terrifying aftermath of the atomic bomb. I felt relieved / happy (not sure if this is the correct adjective..) because it was so amazing how Japan had risen from such terrible incident. You would not even imagine that decades ago, Nagasaki was hell and not as colorful as these photos in this blog entry.
