🌸Haloween in Japan🌸

This time of year is the best and worst for me. Easy.

I always want to go out on Halloween but well …

You see what Dotombori looks like, so well. That’s that haha

Seriously ~

My anxiety won’t let me be great.

My Halloween 2017

Somewhere in that crowd I was “lost” having a panic attack once I realized the crowd stopped moving … cuz to where sway?! 👀

The universe stepped in and said not today satan
(in all my panic attacks never have I had one in Osaka ^^ I can usually navigate)

My beau called at the EXACT moment things were rushing in.

And some (very random) black guy spotted me in a corner as he was kicking it with hos folks.
He kindly told me how to get out of the crowd and kept saying “hang in there” so I did …
I made it to my destination, slowly speech + vocabulary started coming back and all was well –

it definitely got better way before it could get worse.

Very thankful ~

All that madness aside, the scramble crossing at Shibuya was poppin’

But way more crowded.

Also I was 5 hours away … 3 hours, by Shinkansen.

No worries though, the homie, Blue Lion Tokyo got us covered with his mobile photo booth ^.^
