Snapshots from our vacation in Japan
In case you didn’t get the memo, my husband Arnold and I went back to Japan this past couple of weeks because… well I guess there’s really no special reason to go on holiday but to have fun, right? Here are a few snaps I took along the way.
We made sure to go when the sakura (cherry blossoms) were in full bloom because they are just. so. beautiful as you can see in the above pic. Some of the photos above were taken in Ueno and Aoyama in Tokyo and Dotonbori in Osaka. You might also recognize Yoshitomo Nara’s paintings in the collage — those are actual artworks hanging in the cafe the artist himself designed. The Atom (a.k.a. Astroboy) artwork in the collage is also an original painting found in manga artist Osamu Tezuka’s museum in Takarazuka, Hyogo. Yes, my husband and I indeed made the rounds!
In case you’re wondering about that cute Totoro cream puff, it was part of a birthday gift from a Tokyo-based friend (and it was truly yummy… such a shame I couldn’t take it home though!)
More snaps from Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Harajuku in Tokyo. Look at those cute kitties — the poor babies were on leashes because I don’t think they were allowed to roam around the shotengai. 🙁
I’m *really* shy so I rarely post photos of myself on here but I figured what the heck, some of you have been reading this blog since 3 years ago when I started it sooooo…. well that’s me geeking out on the sakura in Hyogo, feeding the friendly deer in Nara, and posing with my husband in front of the Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture in Tokyo.
Apologies for the personal nature of this post … though I hope you enjoyed the photos! We’ll be back to regular Poptastic Bride programming by tomorrow.
