My Pink Shibazakura Dream in Chichibu, Saitama

Hi friends! :)

I'm so inspired to blog, create, and share these days and here I am once again taking full advantage of this unusual state of mine. Haha! Is this the effect of facebook detox?!

(FYI, I have deactivated my personal FB and I still have no plans to go back yet haha)..

Let me share these photographs I took when I went on a journey to Chichibu during the end of April. It was certainly a dream come true for a flower enthusiast like me! :) If you plan to go to Japan (Kanto region), a trip to Saitama prefecture is highly recommended! I originally wanted to go to Mt. Fuji to see the Shibazakura (pink moss) but I didn't want to risk and get disappointed by the disappearing Fuji-san. Also, I've been so interested in exploring Saitama! So many trees, parks, and wonders of nature here!

I didn't expect that I would be welcomed by cherry blossoms that day.

The sakura flowers had already fallen in our area during the same time.. so imagine my surprise! I was so delighted!

A perfect me-time adventure wouldn't be complete without a matching kawaii Japanese souvenir jacket from JLM Store. ^^

I almost had the entire KAWAII train for me. The covers were in my favorite shade of blue. God must be watching over me that day.. (while I was taking tons of selfie photos, lolol)..

I didn't want to fall asleep and miss my stop so I busied myself with my camera.

What a joy!

Whenever I'd tell people that I really enjoy traveling alone, I get mixed reactions. I travel alone to recharge my spirits. I am an introvert who pretends to be an extrovert sometimes when needed (lolol #KailaFact)... and this introvert needs to go back to her own little world sometimes.

This is my kind of happiness. Sitting inside the train, looking away, spacing out.. and thinking of nothing (or sometimes, absolutely about everything, haha).

Last two, I promise, haha!

I was so bored that I braided my hair and used my camera's flip screen as my mirror lololol.

It was actually quite a long walk and I enjoyed it.

I was like this little kid who was trying to keep her best to not burst & dance randomly in the streets (mainly out of happiness for no reason). Haha!
