Famous Towers and Villages in South Korea

          ANNYEONGHASEYO! You know the quote, "If a friendship lasts longer than 7 years, psychologists say it will last a lifetime". Well, with my childhood friends, we've been friends for more than two decades now. We live in different countries and have separate lives but we're family already. So a few of us had the chance to travel together. I wanted to go to a tropical country, see the nature and go to the beaches but ended up going to South Korea. Hah! 3 versus 1 is no good but doing this traveling and adventure with...

During summer time, you will see people wearing yukata and jinbei as festivals are on going. But during spring is the best time to wear a kimono and stroll around the city or anywhere. My friend and I tried doing it in Asakusa, Tokyo during spring 2018. It is the best area because they have the temples, shrines, Tokyo Sky Tree, and Tokyo Tower in the heart of...

A day in Ibaraki Prefecture

On commemorating the March 11,2011 Tsunami/Earthquake in Japan, Aya and I went to see some Plum Trees, hot spring (onsen) and a nearby beach in Ibaraki.

Plum trees are usually mistaken as cherry blossoms coz they come out and bloom few weeks before the known season or time for the cherry blossoms in Japan. This is what they look like. These trees and flowers die down very quick. That is when the cherry blossoms come in. Plums tress' flowers are smaller, branches/trees are...

ICHIRAN Ramen

Good food, God Life! #Foodporn Nonetheless, we all enjoy eating outside. In Japan, ramen is one of the best and known food of all season. You can only taste the authentic ones here. My favorite one is ICHIRAN. They have many branches everywhere esp. in Tokyo. It's a very small ramen restaurant but very unique that's why it is so popular to many foreigners.  Usually, they have long lines but people eat fast and go out since the place is not good to stay a long time. You'll have your own cubicle but can still sit with your friends. First,...

One Day Road Trip: Tokyo to Hakone

One day road trip from Tokyo to Hakone while visiting 5 places in between. We started the trip at 3:00 o'clock in the morning. I think we all slept for two hours only just to accomplish this trip. Basically, my friends are all travelers and photographers so they all decided to go to some tourist spots and picturesque places. We rented a car and they all have their cameras and other gadgets needed. On the other hand, I only have my illustrations and phone. Anyway, we all aimed to get to these 5 places. First stop, We went to Lake...
