How are you guys?
Here is my Kyoto photo diary from the 9 Days Japan Backpacking Series. Hope you enjoy scrolling down below! 🙂
Ahhh Kyoto, I wanna visit you during autumn season too!
First things first–
Must visit the matcha kingdom UJI, Kyoto.
Rent a kimono and go around the city to take beautiful photos.
Look at all the souvenir items you wanted to bring home with you but you had to resist as you only have a backpack . . .

Before I tell you everything, shall we start from the beginning?
Before anything else, Happy Girls’ Day from Japan! 🙂

March 3 is Hina Matsuri (Doll Festival or Girls’ Festival), when people pray for the happiness and healthy growth of girls. Families with young daughters mark this day by setting up a display of dolls inside the house. They offer rice crackers and other food to the dolls. (source)
Since plum blossoms are (almost) in full bloom now, we should get ready for the cherry blossoms this Spring!
Here’s a helpful kawaii infographic ChiChi has come up with.
Cherry Blossom Forecast infographic by JapanLover.me. Based on Japan Guide‘s version! 🙂
Plugging this kawaii event for Lucy Pop! For more info, please check www.kawaii-seifuku.jp!
Just finished today’s work so here I am, blogging again! Hehe! 🙂
Hope you don’t mind me sharing lots of photos from my daily life. I’ve been feeling like everything’s become a routine lately so I try to document the unique moments of my days instead.
Fact: I usually just buy hot green tea drinks (for lunch) & I try to shy away from flavored ones .. but this one caught my eye.
I love this hot lemonade from Family Mart!
Plum blossoms are starting to bloom here in Saitama. Will be meeting up with a friend this Saturday for some ume / plum blossom viewing! I can’t wait!
My go-to snack when I’m super hungry at work: Fami Chiki!
Whenever I’m in saving up mode, I just buy a 100+ yen famichiki & plain rice from the kombini. And that would be my breakfast / lunch! 🙂
Had some free time yesterday after finishing my expected work. Here’s my mobile creative station! ^^
Passed by my favorite store within our area.. Okashi Machioka! They’re currently selling these matcha snacks / sweets / chocolates!
Pocky Matcha, Chocopie Matcha.. and Meiji Almonds Matcha. These are my 5-star recommendations if you are a Matcha lover like me!
Lovely mini plates I’ve spotted while window-shopping in a nearby mall.
Craving for takoyaki? Try Gindaco / Gindako’s! They have the BEST TAKOYAKI ever.
And look, their green tea drink packaging is also cute. Omg Japan why
