Japan - Day 9 & 10

Before I get to the (LAST) of the photos from my trip I want to thank you all for your kind words and questions about my blog design and blog design in general. I have written down each question you would like answered and compiled a list. I plan on breaking the tutorials down in to two sections - coding and graphics. I am excited to get started on writing up the tutorials. I hope you are equally excited to read them :]

Alrighty, this is the end. Haha. I am sure you are excited to no longer be photobombed. I needed to make sure I document me trip though - for me. I am awful when it comes to keeping track of my travels. I want to be able to look back and remember what I did. So anywho, here goes nothing...


Tuesday - Visited Mike's school and stayed in due to high winds

We made okonomiyaki on this night with (almost) his entire house. It was so fun and yummy. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese like pancake/omelet made up of crunchy cabbage, egg, meat (optional), and yummy sauce on top. Why I didn't take a photo of the one's we made is beyond me...whoops! Here is what it looked like though. They were kind enough to make me a version without the bacon because I don't eat meat. I am sure it tastes good that way though.

Here is some photos of the Shiba House crew plus me :]

Ok I messed up a wee bit. Here is one more photo from Monday. We had dinner in Roppongi and there is a pet shop there that sells puppies, kittens, prairie dogs, oh and monkeys! Yikes.


Wednesday morning - Fish market in Tsukiji and Zojoji temples

The fish market was pretty wild. It is where all the fish is auctioned off and sold each morning. You can go walk around if you dare and snack on some fresh sushi. The cutesy signs - although cute, are serious.

Wahoo. Made it! My trip to Japan was one of my favorite trips hands down. I love Japan - the people and it's culture. It is such a beautiful place and I highly suggest visiting if you ever get a chance. I hope to get back there some day.

Now ShyScout can get back on track. Have a beautiful day everyone :]

  6. ~I love your peter pan/polka dot top! SO CUTE! Did you get it there?
    ~This may be a stupid question, but did you notice a huge difference in the taste of sushi in Japan versus having it back home in Chicago? Sushi is my favorite food and I always wonder what it'd be like to actually have it in Japan. Silly I know. lol
    ~That massive cherry blossom is gorgeous!
