15 days, 10 cities, millions of amazing memories, way too many bowls of ramen, one pink umbrella and a hella shiny pink wig, and handful of 35mm film snaps – Japan (part III) on 35mm film is here.
I guess which is why I keep coming back to this place for three years in a row now.
When in Tokyo, you gotta hit up the Tsukiji fish market for the best sushi ever (even more convinced now after having sushi in
other cities of Japan, that’s the best. Period.). Came for the sushi breakfast, stayed for the vibes!
Japan is a one big vending machine heaven – they are everywhere, and I mean everywhere!
Up to some fishy business – literally.
I am also obsessed with Japanese cabs. You can spot one in every colour possible – even in pink!!! –
they are so neat inside and with full lace interior (don’t really understand this one).
Back in Shinjuku – I know I said this one a lot but the giant screens and constant music/ad blasting out from everywhere gives me
strict Blade Runner (which happens to be one of my all time favourite movies) vibes!
The backstreets of Kabukicho – busy, loud and forever colourful!
The most non-Japanese looking architecture – Morioka
The autumn foliage is something else in Japan –
the brightest red leaves easily stole my hearts (and grabbed my attention) throughout this trip!
Onuma Koen serving some major breathtaking autumnal views.
Taking it all in while clearly failing at containing my enthusiasm for this straight-outta-painting sight
Sapporo was coooooold but had some great light!
Speaking of light – Sapporo at night and my fascination with big and bright neon signs!
This most vibrant red maple tree and my dango!
And just like that we’re in Kyoto (well, it took a 2 hour flight from Sapporo, but hey, it’s super pretty here)!
First time in Nara, and I’m already a big fan!
Photobombed by a deer – typical.
I am one with my pink umbrella that day in Nara (and the most of this trip).
Casual day in Nara
moody torii looking all kinds of majestic.
Another bloody rainy day in Kyoto, but I have to admit it definitely did it for the mood.
Back at it – the lights, the sounds, and the chaos… that is Shinjuku!
BONUS: It’s Halloween in Tokyo – I went as Charlotte from Lost in Translation and boyfriend as Bob Harris!
First having some gyozas + ramen, then karaoke! ICONIC!
15 day and 10 cities later end of another mind-blowingly amazing Japan trip. I don’t think I’ll ever have enough of Japan, which is why I can’t help but wanting go back more and more! Don’t know when that will be but I know I’ll be back and I already cannot wait! Till then, arigato gozaimasu for all the fish and sayonara Nippon!
