It’s been a few weeks now since I’ve been back from Japan but it still makes me giddy every time I think about my short stay. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. I never want to.
Nelli, what was the first ever thing you did in Japan? You might ask, or you might not. I’m going to tell you anyway. I went to a convenience store and fangirled at the shelves. Yes this is true. My aunt laughed at me. Fresh off the plane and looking at kawaii already~
Please excuse my disheveled look. I don’t look kawaii when I travel. I’d wear my pajamas if I could. #ootd
Bought some random candies for their packaging and grabbed yakitori to go. We had a super long drive from Narita airport to Saitama and I was just super happy to have something. I’m not sure if I was just very hungry but that yakitori was pretty delish.
We got to the apartment and I dropped my bags happily. I was asked if I wouldn’t mind yakiniku for dinner. I don’t mind anything. My mind was still spinning with trying to grasp the fact that I was on Japan soil.
When we arrived at the restaurant I realised what yakiniku was and thought, so I’m having galbi in Japan huh…hahah – never mind that I had it two days ago in Korea hahaha. It’s delicious in both countries anyway.
All the meat. I want it all.
I have to admit I was shocked when I realised we had to pay for kimchi and you can’t get free refills haha. Waaaaa?????? I had to keep reminding myself I was in Japan haha. I knew I sounded ridiculous because I had a habit of answering “ne [yes in Korean]” whenever my Japanese ‘uncle’ asked me stuff. That kept happening for two days.
I experienced the reverse when I came back to Korea and kept answering “hai!” at the airport and bus ticket people. Hahhaha. I’m a weirdo. I know.
Okiedokies that’s all for now folks. More photos soon~
