Candy Challenge!

Hello all!  I wanted to say a big thank you for following the first adventure! Today’s post is in the form of a video, it’s only 10 minutes so please have a look!  P.S. We had a super early night last night due to having to be up at 5AM today (that’s why this isn’t…

Shinjuku & Harajuku Part 2

Today we decided to venture back into Shinjuku and Harajuku. I had looked up where to buy the rest of my Midori Travellers Notebook refills, and it turns out there is two stores in Shinjuku that stock them. In Australia there is not many shops that stock it and therefore next year I’ll have order…

Hashimoto (Relax day)

This may not be such an interesting post today as it was spent mainly sleeping, eating and watch Japanese television!  However I think we learnt some more things about Japan today! We went to a local restaurant just around the corner from our hotel for lunch. Since we have been here in Japan it has…

Kyoto

I am sorry about the delay in this post, however it was an extremely long day for us, so once we got home we went straight to bed! But here it is: We started our day at 5:30AM to make sure we were on the train from Hashimoto to Shinagawa by 6:00AM. We arrived in…

Akihabara Part 2

Today we decided to take it easy and head to Akihabara for the last time. Since it is so full of shops, and most shops are not only one level, they are several levels, we wanted to make sure we didn’t miss anything amazing! Luckily we did go back! We bought to much stuff that…

Harajuku & ARTINA

Today we decided to start the day late! Well late compared to every other day. We woke up at 9AM, since most stores in Japan don’t open until 10AM, there was no point heading out to the “fashion district” if none of the shops would be open!  By the time we got to Harajuku it…

Sumida, Chiyoda & Shibuya

Let’s start tonight’s blog with the countdown instead of at the end…     This morning was an early start as we wanted to make sure we didn’t wait in a line too long! What was the line for? Where were we going? Oh! That’s right, our first stop was Sumida, in central Tokyo. Something very…

Akihabara & Ikebukuro

Some of you may not understand our excitement for today, but please just appreciate how gamer’s like Jordan work…they love to see anything relating to their games in real life!! Today we were up and awake at 6:30AM and by 7:30AM were on a train to Akihabara. Akihabara is called “electric city”, as it is…

Mitaka

Today’s adventures took us to a wonderful and magical place in Mitaka! This place is incredible and it even says no photography inside! We were allowed to take pictures on the outside, however inside was strictly no images or cameras allowed!  So what was this magical place? Well of course it was…Studio Ghibli Museum.     …

Shinjuku & Kōtō

Sorry this didn’t go up earlier! The internet in our hotel wasn’t working! The post itself was written yesterday so “today” meant on Saturday 🙂 Today we didn’t have anything planned to do as such, all we knew was we would go and do some sight seeing. What we would do along the way would…

Narita – Tokyo – Shinjuku – Hashimoto 

Wow! Let me firstly say that I am totally exhausted! I thought that since our plane was over night I’d be able to sleep, however that was not the case!  During the plane trip, I got sick and had to get out of my seat a lot to walk and stretch and relax my body….

To airport, to airport, to see a Japanese Tree.

Today has been an exciting, stressful, nervous kind of day! With the last day of term, I was incredibly sad to say goodbye for two weeks to all my beautiful students. Alas, I remembered I have a blog to update them and keep in touch! Yay! So guess what!? I’m on the plane! Yup, I…
