A Vegan Girl On Her Life Journey :)

Hi y’all! How are you doing today? ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the longest time, I really didn’t feel like doing a post. Why? Because the more I told myself “I have to do this”, it became more like a “chore” where I had to do. But because today’s sunny, that motivates me to do it a little bit more than when it’s not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

One of the first things we saw at the airport; a vending machine. You see this technically anywhere you look, it’s quite scary. (I’ve never seen as many vending machines in the US before!) Every few blocks you see one; crazy, I tell you!

Lots of little shops in the airport.

Outside the airport. One of my favorite scenes to see in Japan.

Their street lights are different from the US’.

Guess what this fancy, bright building is? It’s a casino (pachinco)!! There are quite a lot of these in Japan, too. (and they’re so big and fancy!) ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

A typical-sized gas station that we passed by as we were driven home. It’s pretty big, isn’t it?

And once we arrived to our grandma’s house, I had to snap some pictures around the house for all of you ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s my brother standing to show how narrow the stairway is.

The room where my mom and I slept. (with lots of orbs, I see) ๐Ÿ˜‰

The “living room” right by our room. (again, with lots of orbs)

And the downstairs living room. Trust me, this place is SMALL!

Look how “big” the bathroom is! It’s length is from my middle finger to a little bit past my elbow (by about 2 in.) Small, I tell you!!

The traditional way to put your futon back. (and out) It’s not a closet, but a “oshiire” (literally translates to “push and put in a/the place”. Makes sense.)

And this is how close the house is to the house next door. (it’s like “right there”) You can hear if the person’s speaking loud enough. That’s how close the houses are. (this was from our room)

How’s Japan so far? Is it different? Small? Surprising? All? Tell me what you think!

More pics to come on the next post! (post #2 – landscapes/stores, and post #3 – food) I will make more posts if I need to, but this is what I have in mind. ๐Ÿ™‚

So these are it for now, and thanks for coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great pics!! Ryan really wants to visit Japan and I am kind of on the fence. I always pictured it to be super busy and stinky, but from what I see in your pics it isn’t either ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus what would i eat?! EEEKKK

    Is it really busy??

    xxoo

    • Thanks! I had fun taking pictures to put on my blog! ๐Ÿ™‚ Photos are part of the fun, you know! ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You totally should if you get the chance to!
      Ha ha ha! It’s busy but I don’t if it’s super stinky! lol That might be more in the big cities.
      Ew, don’t get me started on food! I BARELY lived!!

  2. Being an anime/manga fan, I would say I could recognize some of Tokyo’s landmark…LOL…also not to mention I could imagine how small houses in japan too (Jdrama showed lots of those!!). I agree Japan has the most vending machines all over the place..you can get almost everything from there…from coffee to a full meal to bathroom needs???? ๐Ÿ˜€ Great pics! Can’t wait for more!!

    • Really? Except for the first two pictures, it’s not Tokyo…
      Ha ha! Asian dramas involve so much cultural stuff that you actually can learn a lot about it, huh? Getting bathroom needs? I’ve never heard of that one before! But coffee to a full meal sounds just about right! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Japan looks awesome! I want to visit Japan one day. ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t believe how small that bathroom is though! Can you even turn around in it? Haha.

    • Thanks, and it is! You totally should go visit there if you have the chance!
      I know; isn’t it crazy?! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Ha ha, yes, you can turn around in it! XD

  6. I love Jdrama too, and it’s really cool to see some ‘real’ pics too!

    (I always wondered where they put futon when they don’t sleep on it? Do you have to put it away every day? OoO)
    And, uhm, what’s with the orbs?

    • First, I’m glad you found my blog! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Ha ha ha, now you know where they put the futon! And yes, you have to put it away everyday, because it’s important to keep the room clean and organized. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Orbs are little spirits ๐Ÿ™‚ They were happy to be seen, because no one goes upstairs! (http://ghoststudy.com/a_what_are_orbs.html)
