Fiery Red Paradise of Kochia at Hitachi Seaside Park, Ibaraki Prefecture

Hi everyone!

Last Tuesday, I took a day off from work and had a solo trip to Ibaraki for the second time. My first time was when I went to see the stunning Nemophila flowers last Spring! Thanks to my friend Ashley for giving me advice about the best time to visit this magical place.

If you’ve been following my blog since last year, you would know how much I love nature and flower parks. I’m really motivated to save up so I could travel more around my favorite country. My goal is to visit all prefectures here in Japan! :”) *wish me luck!!*

For now, let me take you on a journey from Ueno to Ibaraki!

Hi all!

Since I often get questions about my journaling style / habit, I thought that it might be the best to answer everything in one blog post. ♥

Here’s a preview of things that I use when I journal.

Stickers, pens, sticky notes.. and more. You don’t need an expensive notebook / planner / journal for journaling.

And remember, there are no rules! 😉 You just have to ENJOY!

I bought my first hobonichi diary last Spring when my friend Abbey & I visited LoFT Shibuya. To those who are curious, my hobonichi techo size is A6 (postcard size). It’s the perfect size for me.

If you want to buy online, go to hobonichiplanner.net. They ship worldwide. ^^

A Week With Ashley (Saitama, Gunma, Yokohama & Tokyo)

Hi everybody!

As you can tell from my current social media posts, I’ve been having a blast with my dear friend Ashley! Ashley is back in Japan for vacation & she spent almost a week here in Saitama. She’s already on her way back to Hyogo-ken now though, huhu!

We actually didn’t have concrete plans & most of our days were really just chill but we’re both so glad that we were able to maximize our days together for both leisure and work!

To start our mini JP adventure together, we had a Yukata date on a Friday!

Watch the #Hobonichi With Me video here & view our yukata date photos here and here.

While waiting for her arrival, I spotted this corner inside the train station. Such a instagrammable frame, haha!

(..and I thought she would arrive at 6:05 AM.. when the actual time was 6:50 AM lolololol me being me)

After our quick nanaha lunch, we roamed around & took each other’s photos.

Yesterday, we had a sukajan shoot for Japan Lover Me Store.

Went to Yokohama to meet common friends & witnessed the “Pikachu Outbreak”.

Lavender dreams unlocked for Ashley! Went all the way to Gunma prefecture so we could have a floral escapade together haha.
