Thought I should try updating my blog using my phone.
If you’ve been following me or any of my social media accounts, you’d know that I’m currently on a trip to discover and explore new places here in Japan with Aki. So far, we’ve visited Nagasaki, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima.
I used to be the kind of traveler who would bring her house with her whenever she goes on a trip but after being with Aki, he has inspired me to bring only what I need for survival lol. Of course, I had a journaling pouch with me. ??
So many people sent me DM about how I pack my stuff for this trip! I’ll upload a pack with me / what’s in my travel backpack video, don’t worry lolol~
From Haneda airport, we flew to our first stop Nagasaki for about 2 hours! Upon arriving, we checked in at our cheap airbnb & left our backpacks to enjoy the Nagasaki Lantern Festival more comfortably. A rainy city welcomed us but it didn’t stop us from exploring the charming Nagasaki.
Here are some photos from last weekend.
Last Saturday, I had a solo trip to Chichibu, Saitama. Ever since I saw photos of Shibazakura (Pink Moss) in the internet, I’ve always wanted to visit such pink heaven! Unfortunately, for the past 4/5 years here in Japan, I wasn’t able to do so (reason = TIME ;_;).
Though I came quite early (the park just opened last April 15/16, I think), seeing the abundance of the pretty shibazakura .. I was so stunned! The place doesn’t even look like real! *_*
Anyway, before I go and show all the photos, here are some ~artsy~ photos I took during my “journey”, haha!
Went to Omiya station to ride the Takasaki Line (local) for Kumagaya. From Kumagaya, I took the Chichibu line.. and unexpectedly, I got to ride a pretty limited express train!
Bonus: There weren’t soooo many people!
Travel essentials! Say hi to my newly baptized cute dino bag by Hedda.
How cute is this train?? And in my favorite shade of blue?
Finally, I’m going to blog about my last full day in Hokkaido (a.k.a. the most adventurous day of the whole trip). Huhuhu, doing this makes me miss traveling.
Here’s a preview of my mini travel diary when I went to Hokkaido.
Inside Kaila’s brain haha
Yay, DAY 4!
Kaila’s Most Adventurous Day in Hokkaido
Woke up early to catch the train that was bound for Asahikawa.
I got off the train and witnessed this marvelous view of flowers that were about to dry up.
After my morning and early afternoon trip at Shiroi Koibito Park and Otaru City, I maximized the day by going back to Sapporo Station to visit Odori Park and the famous Clock Tower.
Outside Sapporo Station.
So many art installations around the city!
