Okinawa Day 1

*w*
I thought I was done with Japan for this summer vacation, but...
Mom: Let's go to Okinawa.
Me: (just got back from Japan 12 hours ago) What?
Mom: O-ki-na-wa
Me: Huh?
Mom: Japan.
Me: OH! JaPaN! again? OTL

Anyhow...

Japan Day 27

This journey was quite long (bits interesting, bits boring, bits zzz)
But enjoyed it overall.
If I were to go again, it would be Hokkaido and Kyushu, the polar ends of Japan.
Now, allow me to cut the crap and onto the last day in japan!

Back in Kyoto as my flight is at KIX~

The "Wheat Ring"/ Ring of Wheat. w.e. it's called.

_____________________________________________

So that marks the end of my Japan journey.
It was quite fun and all.
Only had two to three days of rain. As the rain never did like me.
Even made a joke to my buddy DTryPlex that the sun goes wherever I go.
If I leave, it leaves...
Was kinda funny until...

P.S. All the pictures I took on this journey were taken with my iPhone. coz i cbf to take out my digicam every 5 secs. ☆~(ゝ。∂)

Japan Day 20

Day 20.
Going back to Tokyo. Mainly the western part. (Harajuku, Shinjuku)

IMG_2698
IMG_2699

IMG_2700
This street shows the maximum effect of the Harajuku culture of "cute" everything.
The reason [cute] is in parentheses is because society calls it cute; I am pretty sure that doesn't make me considered to be in society...

IMG_2703
It's a map of the "National Stadium."
HOWEVER, if you look closely.........
IMG_2704
Yup. Y'all go to shcool to learn right? NOPE. (At least I can doubt a little for Japan.) [It is a "national stadium..."]

IMG_2706
No BMX. (Bolded it for ya)

IMG_2712
Just a neko relaxing on a roof.

IMG_2717
Dinner. Kitsune Soba.

IMG_2697

JUST COZ THEY'RE KO-NEKOS. :I

IMG_2693
No comment.
Just a math formula of the boob movement...) >.>

IMG_2720
Late night snack. CHOCO-MELON-PAN!

EDIT:
If you need to avoid those guys that try to have you enter their carabaret club or host club, have an European next to you.  High chances are they won't bother with you. Trust me.

That's it for today.
Hope to be more inspired to take pics 2mrw...

Japan Day 19

Not much today, as arrived to Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture.

Going back to Tokyo (for the day) just to fill in any things that I haven't yet bothered to do.

Went to a shrine at night while walking back to hotel.

Ah, just met up with DTryPlex today. Nothing new. Just throwing stupid jokes back and forth. Nothing much different from IRC chats... really.

Japan Day 17

Day 17
Firstly, they said it was going to rain.
All lies, I tell ya.

As usual, the train ride there from Nagano station.

And another shrine
However, this one is for Sanada Yukimura.
IMG_2643

IMG_2644

IMG_2645
Then off for some Edo-like houses.
But then again, internets always upscale everything; when you get there, it's most likely as bad as it gets.

IMG_2651
Then walked 8 km uphill to find the ruins of Sanada Clan's mansion...
No luck. Couldn't even find it...
So took pics of random stuff. and nice scenery.
IMG_2652
IMG_2653
^found the welcome board though...

IMG_2654
^half of what's on this map doesn't even exist :I
or it's just i'm not looking hard enough...

Then I gave up by then.
Already looked for the ruins for 4 hours... under the supposed raining sky.

To be honest, I didn't get much done today, however, it was fun... kinda.
