Something very fun that me and my family did when they visited me in Japan in 2013 was that we went to Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, just outside Tokyo. It’s a very big aquarium with several houses and areas; one of them is outside where you can see penguin shows, touch the white whale and play with the dolphins.
At the end of March and beginning of April of 2013 my family came to visit me in Tokyo. We did all sorts of things, and I showed them my favorite spots and the different sides of Tokyo.
When I lived in Tokyo between 2012-2013 we only had snow for one single day. Me and my room mate took the opportunity to build a snowman in the square outside the train station, to the amusement of the Japanese… Then eventually March came around, and I visited shrines and parks to enjoy the spring foliage.
It’s time to continue telling about things I experienced when I lived in Japan! On November 14, 2012 I went with my school on a school trip to Kamakura and Enoshima. It was a lovely day!
In the middle of November last year I went on a date in Asakusa. It was the first time I went there, and it immediately became one of my favorite spots in Tokyo. Sure, I like the modern cities where there is bustling life and young people and always something cool going on! But I have always loved history, and sometimes it’s nice to go to the areas of Tokyo where it’s all about the city’s history.
Here are some photos from the area where I live! The photos were taken last fall.
September 2, 2012. Tokyo Sky Tree. Didn’t watch the view though, but we kept to the shopping centre and the aquarium.
So I did go to many concerts last summer and beginning of fall, but I did other things as well! On of the things I did was going on a trip organized by my school, to Mt. Fuji and the amusement park Fuji Q Highland. It was a 3-day trip which included camping, cooking food together, and amazing hot-tubs!
I went to a few firework festivals this summer, and my favourite one was of course the one where I could combine the awesome fireworks and my favourite singer! Takizawa Hideaki was one of the entertainers during the Jingu Gaien hanabi on the 10th of August. Here’s a review of that evening!
Okay, most things about Japan are wonderful and exciting right now, but some of the best things now during summer has to be all the hanabis and matsuris! I’ve been to several already and just have to share!
