Today, my brother told me it was my free day to go out (in case you don’t know, I help him with his work here)! I usually go out during weekends but according to the weather forecast, it will rain again this coming Saturday! :what: That would be my third rainy Saturday in a row so.. I grabbed today’s opportunity to go out and see the rest of Japan! :yay:
My brother told me that Omiya Shrine and Park would be covered with beautiful Sakura… but when we went there, only Sakura trees but not the real pink Sakura yet! : )))
I just wore something simple. My inspiration for this outfit is a tree : ))))
Fail photo of my hot-air balloon earrings.
Vintage oversized buttons are just lovely, don’t you think?
Swimmer Sweet Deco Watch
Yup, bald sakura trees.. : ))
But can you imagine how beautiful this walkway would be once the Sakura blooms?
Testing my new Nikon 1 camera! I love it so much!
I am not a buddhist but I appreciate buddhism beliefs : )
1,000 paper cranes for one wish
At least, I found a tree! Not sure if this is a Sakura though. Probably a plum blossom? (not a flower expert, haha)
The Omiya Shrine is this BIGGGG!
Enjoyed my noon walking. Nothing feels more refreshing to walk in a beautiful place like this.
Sakura alert, sakura alert
Finally, I saw a pinker one! Like the falling sakura on my blog~ <3
I was so proud of myself when I reached here! I thought I would get lost again :O
Omoshiroiiiiii (interesting) store!
“Little Edo” Kawagoe
Through Kawagoe Sen (line) and about four stops from Omiya station, I have arrived!
Oh Japan <3
I love this photo a lot. I was surprised that the train suddenly came into picture! Perfection :heart:
Was planning to take purikura here but…
There were hordes of highschool girls! And wow, there’s a curling iron & straightener booth thereeee! Unbelievable.
Girls and their vanity. Haha
This street reminds me of Ameyokocho of Ueno.
With a touch of Kyoto!
Bought that scallop-shaped shorts for 980 yen only!
And let the photos do the narration…
Amazing MAP in KANJI CHARACTERS..
HOW IN THE WORLD :O :O
Inside vintage toy shop..
Kawagoe’s プリア: The Friendliest Fox-like Dog!
One of my brother’s recommendations about Kawagoe is this place where PRIYA lives.
Priya is such a star.
(UPDATE: They have a fanpage of facebook. Click here!)
To get a free photo session with Priya, just order any food!
As soon as I entered the mini cafe, a friendly obaa-chan greeted me with a smile. Later on, I saw Priya coming out! SO HAPPY!
As always, I ordered a cake set! My tea was served in this beautiful teapot/tea cup ! I was ecstatic to see that there fruits along with my cheescake! So cuteeee!
Delicious, delicious meal.
I just wanna hug this dog forever >__<
Ojii-san told me that the dog was already 10 years old. And her name Priya came from “Indo” (India)! Priya means “Dear” in Indian.. if I am not wrong.
All smiles with Priya!
She doesn’t look happy with me though in this photo.. hahaha.
I actually have a “happier” and more cheerful photo with her. I was hugginggggg her (good omen, my brother told me!)!!! It was taken using the ojii-san’s camera, so lazy to take a photo of it haha..
See you soon, Priya-san!
I just saw a huge interesting poodle-like groomed dog!! I don’t speak dog language so I don’t have any idea what kind of breed this is..
I saw this little stationary store selling cute Japanese inflatable (?) toys…
I bought the globe ones for souvenir ^^v
Reaching the end of my Kawagoe journey..
And my camera has died on me. I went back right after this photo.. :cutee:
PURIKURA and My Disappearing Pistacchio Coat…
Purikura has become an obligation every time I go outside & play. Haha!
SO FUNNY : )) My pistacchio-colored coat disappeared because of the green-screen effect! : ))))))))
Hope that my little Kawagoe tour was fun for you!
