this cute cafe is right outside my apartment!
i think i'm going to spend my journal writing time in here
but, it closes early at 7pm...
its my 2nd day here, and i already feel so comfortable!! Japan really is so amazing. i feel like everything so freestyle, visually. nothing is the same here. everything is beautifully different.
when i first arrived, i had a very difficult time going through the train stations in Shinjuku and Shibuya to get to the apartment office, then to my apartment. it was crazy rush hour and i had to drag around a 61 lb. luggage behind me through everything! it was extremely tiring and stressful... but when i finally got settled, i remember saying "...that was fun!" hahah
i can't explain how happy i am here. i feel so alive and almost constantly glowing! taking in every single second, i feel no time is wasted here. Japan has so much to offer me.
the jet lag is still getting to me, but for 2 days, i feel i've already done so much!!
- thoroughly explored my neighborhood. Kakinokizaka is full of beautiful homes, cafe's, schools, restaurants, parks, shops, and pretty side streets.
- already made friends at this bar down the street from my apartment. coincidentally, it's a Hawaiian decorated Izakaya! i got a little drunk with the owner and some of his regular customers! they were all very friendly to me :-)
- took the train to Ginza side and went shopping in a giant electronic department store, then to the giant Muji in Yurakucho to buy a notebook to start my daily journal!
i will try to take you all along on this ADVENTURE with me throughout my days!!! i probably won't post everyday, and of course forget some details, but hopefully my pictures can capture this journey well enough for all you friends to enjoy too! ♥
