Due to some good timing and using our upcoming 10 year wedding anniversary as an excuse, we managed to visit Tokyo for about a week, just in time for Hanami! Meaning of Hanami on wikipedia.

This time we were quite broke (lol) so focused most of the time on taking as many photos as we possibly can, walking about was great exercise too lol! I brought Aki along with me for photos ^o^/

As always, the tutorial for how to make the Santa’s hat can be found here :D

Due to various reasons this year we were super burnt out, and somehow found our way to the land of the rising sun for a short trip not too long ago ^^; – for a hit and run vacation, mind you ^^;  The trip started off quite rough due to some health related problem on my end (argh) among other things, but you know it wasn’t too bad as our love of Japan made us enjoyed it no matter what. Came back slightly recharged despite still suffering from jet lag. ^^;

During our Japan trip earlier this year, we were incredibly lucky to bump into a time where the Shibazakura is in bloom by Mt Fuji (9th May) ^o^!

Aki demanded I take her, as she wanted to take photos of the rare sight :P Thanks Bluestarbaby for suggesting that we check out Mt Fuji on this trip… XD we were able to take a bus together for a day trip. It was quite an adventure! :) We had to get up really early I woke at 5 am, find the bus terminal to collect and pay for our tickets, we slept most of the bus journey which took felt like a couple hour plus each way?

After we came back from our trip, Mt Fuji was announced as a World Heritage site :D Omedetou! ^o^
