Hi kawaii + creative family!
These days, I’m constantly yelling MOSHI MOSHI Japan! 👋👋👋
(Long read and sharing more goals ahead ~)
But THANK YOU for sharing in these reflective #dctojapan moments with me. <3
Reflecting on My Goals
As of June 2013, I set out on a goal to visit Japan for working vacation every 6 months.
My stays would consist of no less than 2 weeks and no more than 1 month as I try to touch my dreams of working in Japan
… and make them consistent.
Since starting, I have started using the tag #dctoJapan to share my adventures with fellow dreamers, family/ friends, and fans alike.
So as I sat prepping for this new blog I was reminiscing about my first trip to Japan.
It was in June 2013, a treat to/ creative investment in myself for my 33rd birthday.
My first few days in Tokyo were adventure filled!
I met up with language exchange buddies, turned good friends. After two years I was able to meet people I’d starting calling friends ~
🎀Meet-Up + Takeshita Dori + Kiddyland
Some of my girl friends and I met up on my first day and took an adventure to Harajuku ~
🎀Passo-kun + Old Japan Culture + Good times!
The next day, I enjoyed traditional izakaya food with my big brother Passo and his friends.
Getting sick off of raw liver made the next few days REALLY interesting ~
🎀Doraemon Museum + Bento (Yum!)
I love Doraemon, so my girl friend Sati made a trip to Doraemon museum happen.
She’s never been either and wanted to explore together ^.^
🌸Moshi Moshi Osaka
I took a weekend trip to Osaka to meet one of my favourite Japanese tattoo artists, Naoki
… and had no idea the bond we’d create
I left Osaka to return to Tokyo, get packed and hop a flight back to the States.
Osaka and my goals have been on my mind ever since.
Thanks for reading!
