YUMENOSHIMA PARK TROPICAL GREENHOUSE SHINKIBA






















My Totoro moment!

















My trip at Yumenoshima (which means famous island in Japanese) Park Tropical Greenhouse with Kathryn is nothing but magical. Entrance for adults is ¥250 but the experience is way worth more than that. Only regret that I have is why didn't I wore white? It could have been more amazing on photos. Oh well, next time. I would really want to go back here and I'm sure Kathryn does too. Living in Japan made me understand that there are friends for each place you go to. I've made lots of friends since I've moved here but they're not interested in similar things, I guess that's good since I could spend time with them in different places as well. For sure Kiko won't like having his photos taken in a greenery thus I feel really lucky meeting Kathryn. You might remember my love for nature and photos on this post. I've always loved and always will love taking photos with nature. I'm so excited for more days like this - plants that I do not know of, wild fleurs, twigs and branches, red bushes (would really love to go to Ibaraki for those) and insects included.

HALLOWEEN IN JAPAN: PUMPKIN PATCH IN SHINKIBA


Halloween - the best time of the year! Guess who am I?





The horror on this little cutie's face!












Frozen is still very popular in Japan now, just look at this little Elsa!


Do you wanna build a snowman? Here's Anna!



It's my first pumpkin patch event and it's not even a real pumpkin patch! But it's amazing to get to experience this to be honest! Someday, I'll be visiting a real pumpkin patch and buy a huge pumpkin so I can paint it pink. Looking forward for next year, hopefully I could visit Shibuya or NYC for Halloween. 


Ta-da! I'm Kiki from 魔女の宅急便 / Majo no Takkyūbin / Witch's Delivery Service or as we all know of as Kiki's Delivery Service! This is just quite accidental costume since I didn't plan anything anyway but I got this ribbon head band for kids at a photo booth corner. Luckily it is quite similar to Kiki's and I even match the background. She's one of my favourite Ghibli characters. How about you? Who did you dressed up as for Halloween?  

A weekend before Halloween, I've met up with Kathryn/ Kitsune-kun of Oh Page Boys for the first time! If you'll ask me how many friends I've gathered thru internet, I cannot tell you the answer. Just way too many! And, I thank internet for that! For more photos, visit Oh Page Boys
