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!

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!

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)

I also figured, since I don’t live in Toronto, but rather 1-2 hours away, it does require some “travel”… Read More A Summer Day in Toronto: Bar Buca, Ripley’s Aquarium, and The Lockhart (a Harry Potter Bar)

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
