I know I never finished any of my entries about Italy but well, Italy wasn’t as fun as Japan, so here’s more entries about Japan! Pretty timely (for once) too, considering I just got back last week. The Italy entries will remain lonely and cold in my Drafts folder for […]

I have a bunch of posts with photos that I just never got around to posting from Japan sitting in Drafts in WordPress. I’m going to try to finish posting them since some of them have been around for almost a YEAR. A YEAR! Writing all these words and captions […]

random japanese food

This is an entry of random food photos from Japan that I didn’t get around to posting anywhere else. Yay, random food! The thing in the photo above is some kind of amazing Japanese bread item — Japan has the best weird bread things — it’s a potato croquette inside […]

The beauty of working from home: one night, Mike and I decided to go Nagoya. We decided this around 2am and I booked bus tickets and a hotel room for the next day, because why not? Why not go to Nagoya on a whim? Part of the reason was that […]

If you’re a big nerd, you’ll probably enjoy 8 bit cafe in Shinjuku. I’m only a small nerd and I thought it was cool. It’s basically a bar that’s packed full of retro gaming stuff, with themed cocktails to match. There are game systems you can play (although not as […]

Oh, Tokyo. Even though I love Seoul, I miss you when I’m gone. It’s weird to miss a place that isn’t your home, and it’s weird to be comforted by a language you don’t really know. But I do and I am. Here’s a mostly random collection of Tokyo photos […]

ramen burger

Before  I get into my Hiroshima posts, I thought I’d post about the Lotteria Ramen Burger. We tried it a couple days after it came out and it’s still available (for a limited time) in Japan. It’s basically exactly what it sounds like — a burger with ramen on it! […]

getting stuff done in tokyo

I’m taking a break from the Lolita posts (part four is still forthcoming!) for a different kind of entry. This post is geared towards English-speakers coming to Japan — either as tourists or to live. It’s mostly a link dump of things I’ve found helpful in my day-to-day life while […]
