ただいま!

I’m back in Osaka~! I forgot my SD card reader, so I had to buy a new one, but it’s alright - my old one was breaking and electronics are cheap (and cute hehe) here, so I already got a new and better one!

So on August 25th, a lolita event is happening in Yodoyabashi, which is about 20 minutes by subway from Sou’s house.
I’m going to try really hard to make it!!There’s going to be a fashion show, a boutique, and tea party, among other things~ :D

~THE LIST OF THINGS~

August 12th - arrive in Japan
August 17th(?) - Rilakkuma Museum in Kyoto
September 6th - An Cafe concert

Things with undetermined dates:
-Instant ramen museum
-Rose garden in Sakai-shi
-Kaiyukan
-Beach
-Matsuri

and also meeting up with friends at some point.

and shopping.

This year is Rilakkuma’s 10th anniversary (I love that it’s the same as An Cafe’s!), and they’ll be having two “museum” exhibits - the Kyoto one begins just days after I arrive in Japan (and is FREE), so I’ll be going to it with my friend who lives in Kyoto right now!

Kaiyukan (aka Osaka Aquarium), one of my favorite places in the world, has three new exhibits: Arctic, Falkland Islands, and Maldives!

We’re planning on visiting again - particularly excited for the Arctic exhibit~

My flight has now been confirmed!
It’s a little crazy, because my dad was having trouble finding flights from Denver to Osaka - so he had to book a flight from Denver to Seattle, then an entirely separate flight Seattle to Osaka. And on the way back, I fly into Colorado Springs instead of Denver - which will be nice, because that means I’ll be home quicker that night!

I realized I’ve been doing a really bad job of keeping my plans updated on this blog…

due to unforseen circumstances, my trip had to be postponed until August - due to going later, my friend and I decided instead to go to the Osaka An Cafe show!
here are our tickets that she picked up on Saturday :D

words seriously cannot express how excited I am for this~ * 3*

In just over 2 months, I’ll be in Osaka again!

Some places I want to go that I haven’t been to yet:

An Cafe’s “Kimi no Machi” tour will be ongoing while I’m in Japan, so I’ve made plans to go to the Kyoto live with my friend Lexy!
Lexy and I met online a looong time ago (when I was in middle school!) and she’s the one who introduced me to An Cafe 9 years ago! So it’s like destiny that we’ll meet in person for the first time for An Cafe’s 10th anniversary tour~

For my last evening in Japan, Sou and I went on a date to a really nice Italian restaurant.
The food was sooo delicious (and not too expensive!) and the atmosphere was just perfect! I’d really love to go there again.

We got:
-unlimited bread!
-salad (not pictured)
-carbonara pizza
-yummy pasta with white sauce, scallops, and brussel sprouts
-cake
-mango sherbert and vanilla frozen yoghurt~

Anyway, I think that’s it for posts from this trip!
The plan is to go back this summer, but plans for that can’t really start until March when the summer class schedule comes out (I need to take 2 more classes to graduate).
