So this is completely, horribly, terribly late. I went to this cafe over a month ago, the summer is almost over, and this post has been languishing in my drafts folder for more than a month. However this cafe is super fun, quirky, and so very Tokyo that I would hate for people not to … More Summer Cafe Series TBT Edition – The Hammock Kafe, Kichijoji
As you hopefully know if you have been following my blog since the beginning, I absolutely adored being abroad. I think that everyone, time and money permitting, should have the chance to study abroad before they graduate from college (and maybe even after, depending on how ambitious you are!) Living in a country that’s not … More Things I Wish I Had Known Before Going Abroad
My second day in DC was much more pleasant that the first temperature-wise, and just as delicious food-wise, so I honestly think it was a success!
I realized I haven’t had a “summer vacation” that hadn’t had some ulterior motive (visit family, language learning, camp, etc.) in a VERY long time. And since I was still in my study abroad money-is-a-minimal-object spending phase, I bought tickets to go visit my good friend Mer in DC! Believe it or not, I have never … More Das Capital – Washington DC Day 1
On Monday, everyone who is taking a Japanese class at ICU had their final exam. For a lot of my friends, this meant that they were done for the semester. What to do with our time? Get drunk. So here’s a brief guide to some of the Izakayas I have been to in Tokyo.
How many times on this blog have I waxed poetic about my favorite city (neighborhood? District? Tokyo is confusing) in Japan? Too many times. Unfortunately for those of you who hate Kichijoji, I have at lease two more posts including this one about cafes in this posh little neighborhood. This time, I will be talking … More Summer Cafe Series Part Two – A B Cafe, Kichijoji
So, it can be argued that I in fact began the summer cafe series when I posted about Cafe Zenon. However, at that point I was unaware that I wanted a summer cafe series and thus that post is not included. … More The Beginning of the Summer Cafe Series
The school I went to the first time I came to Japan was very close to Yokohama. So one day, when my host sister had a block lunch period (#jelly) we went to Yokohama’s Chinatown. I was enamored and have been waiting for the chance to go back ever since I got here. On Sunday, … More A Rant About Trains and The Day I Finally Got My Meatbun
This Friday, after the plans I had originally made fell through, I was planning on cleaning my room and getting my life together after two weeks of midterms and projects left a hurricane in its wake. It was going to be cheap, productive, and… boring. So of course when a friend came up to me … More 6/3/2016 – Cafe Zenon & Preparing For Finals
For the continuation my previous post, you get our trip to the north portion of the main island. Naha, where we were staying, is the capital. However the aquarium and a bunch of other cool places to visit are a little further north near Nago. The bus ride took about an hour and a half, but it was well worth the time spent. … More Okinawa Part 2: なんくるないさ～
