We’re getting so excited – we have 5 days left until we leave for Japan! Even though I blogged about my misconceptions here, it hasn’t stopped me from being wildly optimistic – I’ve typed up a scarily detailed bucket list (mainly with restaurants) in a Word document organised by cuisine, city and, where ramen is involved, noodle type. Yes, I’m that type of traveller – I can’t bear to let things happen as they come, I need a plan, a map and a watch. Sometimes if we’re really short on time, we highlight routes on maps to maximise efficiency. I doubt that will happen on this trip, and I’ll have to work on being more flexible, but I don’t care – Japan is beckoning!
I’m also keen to check out all the Harajuku/Shibuya street fashion in Tokyo – I always find cos-play fascinating, and I also love the way that Japanese women manage to look so sweetly feminine and chic in freezing cold temperatures. Here are some awesome cos-play pics to brighten up your Wednesday!
