Welcome to part 2 of Day 7 of my 2017 Japan and South Korea trip!

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 7) Part 1: Japanese Countryside, Fushimi Inari Fail, Cherry Blossom Ice Cream, and the Kiyomizu-dera Temple

This post took quite a while to actually plan, write, and post! The reason for that is … December happened, and I had a lot of catching up to do in my reading and review-writing. Plus there’s also this little thing that I mention in almost all of these posts: writing about Japan is painful.… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 7) Part 1: Japanese Countryside, Fushimi Inari Fail, Cherry Blossom Ice Cream, and the Kiyomizu-dera Temple

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 6) Part 2: Bento Lunch, the Hakone Tozan Line, and a Long Walk Home Through Tokyo

The second half of Day 6 was a little more exciting! As you can tell from the title, we had an amazingly delicious lunch, then made our way from Odawara to Hakone where we had been planning to go and view Mount Fuji. That didn’t work out (and you can read all about it in… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 6) Part 2: Bento Lunch, the Hakone Tozan Line, and a Long Walk Home Through Tokyo

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 6) Part 1: Riding the Shinkansen, Odawara Samurai Museum, Odawara Castle, and Miyukinohama Beach

It’s finally time for another episode of Flavia goes to Japan and South Korea! Just kidding. Unless you think of these as episodes. Which is fine. Haha. Anyway, as you can probably tell from the other posts I’ve made about this trip, we made sure to stay busy every single day! Because Day 6 was… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 6) Part 1: Riding the Shinkansen, Odawara Samurai Museum, Odawara Castle, and Miyukinohama Beach

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 5) Part 2: Ikegami, and Harajuku (the Meiji Shrine and Takashita Street)

I’m very very sorry about how late this post is! My life sort of exploded, and I really had to prioritize books, and book reviews for a while! Part 1 of this post went up on July 27th, and that is kind of ridiculous. Considering that I had to split Day 5 up into 2… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 5) Part 2: Ikegami, and Harajuku (the Meiji Shrine and Takashita Street)

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 4): Kamakura: Hokokuji Temple, Hachimangu Shrine, Katsu Curry, Kamakura’s Great Buddha, and Hase Temple

I’m so so sorry that it took me so long (a few weeks) to write Day 4 for you guys! I was dealing with some work-related stuff, and also experiencing some of that post-travel depression I think I’ve mentioned before. I should have known that it would come back. Guys, I really really miss Japan… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 4): Kamakura: Hokokuji Temple, Hachimangu Shrine, Katsu Curry, Kamakura’s Great Buddha, and Hase Temple

Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 3): Rain in Tokyo, Starbucks, Tokyo Tower, and Yuri on Ice

It’s finally time for me to share Day 3 with all of you! Doing this on a weekly basis is kind of hard on me, I’ll be honest, because I’m just impatient and want to tell you all about everything right now. But in order to do that, posting about one day per week is… Read More Japan and Korea 2017 (Day 3): Rain in Tokyo, Starbucks, Tokyo Tower, and Yuri on Ice
