Starting the week right with a blog update, yay! :))
To continue our quick Kansai trip last Spring, here are the photos during our last day in Kyoto. Also, here is Abbey’s blog entry about her Japan trip. <3
I can still remember how perfect that day was. I think that there was a divine intervention that happened, haha!
Imagine, it was our last day in Kansai (we had to leave later at night for our night bus). Abbey wasn’t feeling well during the earlier parts of our trip but her colds MAGICALLY disappeared that morning (meaning, yay, we could go to Kyoto!!)! When we arrived at the Osaka station, we almost gave up in searching for “empty” lockers but we found a place where we could store ours (also inside the BIG osaka station). We found a kimono rental shop within our first minutes in Kyoto (I was about to use the google map but our luck was overpouring that day, as you can tell). It didn’t rain and it was a perfect “Spring day” with cherry blossoms in FULL BLOOM all around the city. When I checked the weather, I found out that it was the last “ok day” for the cherry blossom trees in Kyoto because it heavenly rained the next day. *_*
Maybe we combined each other’s luck?? Haha!
Walking in kimono in Kyoto with one of your dearest friends = #friendshipgoals :))
Hobonichi Diaries + ABCxRainbowholic Trip
Thank you cherry blossoms for waiting for us!
Let’s start with the actual narration! Shall we?
Here’s a super spammy blog entry for everyone!
This is the second part of the Kansai Trip with my dear friend Abbey! Since I’m so sleepy as I am typing all these.. I hope that the photos would be enough as my narration, hehe!
KPP special drink!
Why we really wanted to visit Osaka ~ <3
Minion steamed bun! Just the cutest ~
Let’s start with the photo adventure, shall we? 😉
Last Spring, my dear friend Abbey and I went to have a 3-day trip in Kansai Region (Osaka – Kyoto). It was super fun and unforgettable. Still couldn’t forget the time we got ourselves lost because of my very dependable “navigational skills”, haha! We booked a night bus from Saitama and we arrived at a VIP Lounge (that’s how they call it) somewhere near Osaka station. If you’re planning to go to Osaka / Kyoto, booking a night bus (try willerexpress) is an affordable option compared to riding a shinkansen / bullet train.
Hi Glicoman, we meet again!
Beautiful women in Kimono. (Gion, Kyoto)
Last day of the Sakura blossoms in full bloom. It rained so hard the next day!
See you again, Kyoto!
Easter cuteness in Universal Studios Japan~! More photospam photos coming your way in the next entries! 😉
For now, let’s start with Day 1!
Arrived at our VIP Lounge after the long bus ride. It was raining that morning~
I just came back from a 3-day trip to Kansai (Osaka / Kyoto) with cappie Abbey. Here are some photos I’d like to share~
I took so many photos and I hope I can blog about the whole trip soon!
Not sure if I’ve already mentioned it on the blog (ahh, my memory ;_;) but I recently got myself a Hobonichi planner / diary (Spring edition). I actually discovered this months ago when I was lurking around a LoFT branch in our area and coincidentally, one of my good friends from Australia (Hi Jenni!) posted a page of her super kawaii hobonichi planner (lots of pretty doodles, go give her a follow on instagram)! Hobonichi kept on haunting me for a couple of months (maybe 2 or 3? haha).. and I managed to practice self-control (which was TOUGH because I’d keep on looking through hobonichi planners everytime I’d go to LoFT). I’m actually proud of my purchasing habits presently because I don’t easily buy on impulse anymore as much as before, haha! #KailaAchievements
I told myself that if we exceed our goals / objectives for Japan Lover Me Store for another month, I’d finally get myself one. And we did! I waited for Abbey to arrive as well so we can choose our hobonichi diaries together. <3
During our last day in Kansai, we went to Kyoto to view the city in full sakura bloom.
Of course, we had to rent pretty kimono sets! 😉
Wanted to take these cuties home with me!
(If you’re curious, I blogged about my Kyoto travel (Summer) before and you can read my tips here! ^^ )
Perks of having a friend who loves traveling / going around Japan / taking photos with you = pretty ig-worthy photos!
