First Snaps in Tokyo (Recap from 2020)

Kon’nichiwa from Tokyo! After months on adapting Japan’s culture and lifestyle, I could finally share to you some my snaps I had from these past few months. It’s already been two years since I wrote this introduction. Within the period, I made friends, discovered new hobbies, and still continues to learn Japan’s culture and lifestyle. […]

Spring Diary 2020: Sakura and Snow

Late night of March 28, I checked my weather app and surprised to see snow forecast tomorrow morning. Surprised since I will be forecasted to fall in the middle of sakura season in Tokyo. I woke up around 8AM on March 29 cause I feel like freezing inside my room. I turned my heater on […]

PRODUCE 101 JAPAN: International Fan Diary

September 3. I woke up and done my usual morning routine when I stumble upon a video passing in my Twitter timeline. And I never would have thought that PV of ツカメ〜It’s Coming〜 could change my fangirling experience. I am a Kpop fan who watches Produce 101. Every time they releases the theme song, I easily […]

GW 2019 Trip Day 3: Odawara-Hakone

Our third day trip is at Odawara and Hakone. During our travel, the weather isn’t as nice as our other trip. But this doesn’t stop us to visit Tokyo’s nearby castle and the tori on lake.

GW 2019 Trip Day 2: Karuizawa

Second day of our Golden Week trip. Karuizawa is an elegant resort town in Nagano Prefecture which is known for its various winter sports activities and hot springs. We chose this place to get an experience riding a shinkansen under the Tokyo Wide Pass (since Tokaido Shinkansen isn’t included in our pass).

Spring Diary 2019: Sakura and Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and due to its perfectly-shaped cone and snowy caps every winter and spring, this becomes the symbol of the country and attracts tourists from local to global. You may see it from Tokyo but it takes a luck to get a clear visibility from it. In order […]

Spring Diary 2019: Nakano Sakura Dori

Getting to Nakano wasn’t really part of that day’s walk as I was initially planning to visit Inui Street only, a street inside the Imperial Palace where it only opens to the public during sakura season and autumn. However, my visit inside the Imperial Palace ended earlier than expected so I did a random pick […]

Tokyo Game Show 2018: Event Diary

Tokyo Game Show is currently the biggest convention for game enthusiasts in Asia. Hundreds of games were showcased and has occupied all the exhibition halls of Makuhari Messe. Since I bought two-day tickets (September 22 & 23), I focused on one thing each day: cosplay on first and exhibits on second.

Summer Comiket 94: Event Diary

Seeing the crowds before I got off the train makes me feel excited for my first Comiket experience. I was thankful I happened to see an article about this event a month before or I’ll be ever regretful for the rest of my life. Attending Comiket has always been a dream of mine since I […]
