Some sketchbook pages:
You know, I could probably kill someone with a mechanical pencil if I poked it in the right place with the right amount of hostility… That blunt pair of scissors? Definitely not as effective. Just saying. :P
Left page: done during the flight to and fro Haneda airport and Asahikawa airport. If you can’t tell, I took a lot of liberties writing the words Haneda (羽田) and Asahikawa (旭川). XDD
Right page: mindless doodling while waiting for the flight back home on the last day. Our plane was delayed for three hours! Crazy.
And the goodies. Most of them, at least. Does anyone else have the habit of photographing their haul after a trip abroad?
Stuff from Kyoto
These beautiful washi (otherwise known as origami paper) and super cute tiger mum and baby origami were given by a random old lady when she approached Senpai and I on the streets of Teramachi. The both of us were obviously lost and consulting the huge Kyoto map while trying to get our bearings, so she was a godsend. She even made the crane origami while we walked towards the nearest train station! :DDD
Stickers from Loft– I still can’t get used to calling them ‘seals’ in Japan. The cute animals come to mind instead. Speaking of which, I used to have this huge white seal plushie when I was younger… *_*
Stuff from Hokkaido
Stuff from Tokyo
The other bag that I bought in Ameyoko. It was bought after I realised that I didn’t have a large enough hand-carry for when I wanted to lug my goodies back home, but the other pink foldable tote that I’d bought at the same time turned out to be so handy that this wasn’t used at all. Love the print so much!
Spoils from the Usavich tikam machine that was also in Nakano Broadway. I still didn’t manage to get the naked one after four tries– but I did get all four different figurines, which counts for my luck I suppose.
We got this at the entrance. Everyone’s were different, and I was lucky to get a screenshot from Kiki’s Delivery Service, one of my fav Ghibli films. <3
The beautiful Kuma to Yamaneko.
The whimsical Tsumiki no Ie.
And the wacky, colour-explosion that is Boku wa Chameleon.
Plus! The awesome that is Saint Young Men from bookstore Tsutaya. It’s so nice to have the pretty shimmery covers in my hands. <333333
Noms from Narita Airport
And this concludes my Japan trip reportage. Finally! :D
