28 May 2013


A pointless blog post; mainly because I have been absent on Blogger and every time I touch something electrical it flakes out on me. So I cannot retrieve the 300 odd photos from Japan right now either. Boo. Also the weather today (yet again) is raining, after a fab two/three days of sun and now I have a nice tan - well nothing compared to my Boyfriend, I'm still white as a ghost. So, here are 50 questions and my answers to pass time today.

As a question to those who follow/read my Blog; what would you like to know about me, or to read? I need something to motivate me and inspire me to write again. Thank you!

★ Kanazawa Zoo ♫

We went on a day trip to Kanazawa Zoo in Yokohama! Wehh~ Zoo! The weather was amazing for it too, and we went with my Boyfriend's Mother and his Sister, so it was a fun drive there. I realised that Kanazawa Zoo is situated in the same area as the BBQ we had last year. So it was nice to be in an area I was familiar with.
The Zoo itself is really scenic and to be honest, you wouldn't feel like you were in a Zoo with how green it was. Nothing like rows and rows of cages like some of the Zoos I have visited. The only disappointment; NO FISHES. I love aquariums and I was sad to not see one here. They did have a Bug section however, uggh those Japanese rhinoceros beetles will carry me away captive! Like most, if not all Zoos, they have a sign, naming the animal, where it is from originally as well as a couple fun facts. Thankfully they provide signs in Japanese and English too! It was fun learning the Japanese names, but sadly nothing has stuck; aside from 'Ramu' for Ram, uh.. Anyway! The Zoo itself was split into four areas: America - Eurasia - Oceania and Africa. It's pretty hilly, built in order to preserve a natural habitat for some of the Animals living there, but don't worry there are drinking water fountains on every corner and occasionally you come across a Cafe or food vendor. (I cried for shaved ice but Japanese eating + walking rules make me sob more)
Here is the link to the OHP in English! http://www2.kanazawa-zoo.org/english/
It gives you a full description of the Zoo itself! Location, travel and prices. It's super cheap, considering prices in the UK I've seen. Oh and because it was Golden week, and a bunch of other Festivals happening; there were giant fishes, or 'koinobori' which are used as decoration during Children's Day.

(´∀`) Asakusa Date!

   My Boyfriend has always known that every time I come to Japan with Friends, that I will usually stay in Asakusa. It's cheaper than finding a place, say in the middle of Tokyo, plus the area of Asakusa is amazingly beautiful too! There are multiple things within walking distance of one another, so you don't spend much money on transport at all!
   So during a holiday, we decided to go to Asakusa for the day! We first headed to Sensoji (浅草寺). Which is also known commonly as "Asakusa Kannon Temple". I thought that because my Boyfriend is Japanese, that he'd just shrug off the temple, having seen probably many in his lifetime anyway? But he was actually amazed and took plenty of photos to remember the day.  We went for conveyor belt sushi, or くるくる寿司! Haha. It's delicious and my Boyfriend introduced me to engawa sushi previously and it's so tasty! I really recommend it for people who wanna try something different but are not too daring to try ika or tako.
   I have continuously pointed out to him during my stays "Look! Tokyo Sky tree!" when watching TV. So now seeing it in person (in the distance) was even more surreal for him. So we decided to walk our way there. Mainly because we wanted to see more, and our feet weren't hurting yet. It was a pretty easy walk to be honest - so if anyone tells you to use public transport, don't! If you can see the tower, just keep walking towards it! It is not hard to miss.
  The Tokyo Sky Tree is absolutely amazing inside, much like other tower views I seem to have a habit of visiting while in Japan? Sunshine City? Yokohama Sky Garden? Now Tokyo Sky Tree. Surprisingly, I have never visited Tokyo Tower, yet. I will write another blog at a later date with more photos from up inside Tokyo Tower.
