Sayonara Japan!

Sayonara Japan!

For my remaining day and a half in Japan, I tried to take it as easy as possible and enjoy the rest of my time there. Since I was still recuperating, it was perfect that I coincidentally had an appointment at the hair salon. Hehe. I wasn’t quite expecting to stay at the salon for five hours, but at least I didn’t have to do much aside from sitting still. =P Afterwards I had to wait for my sister to…

Considering this blog entry is about two separate things, I think it goes to show you just how much I packed in on my trip this time. Lol

Tohoku

Tohoku

After a windy start to our Tohoku trip, we were lucky the remainder of our time turned out much better. As our schedule was so packed this time, we decided to scrap some of the touristy things and reserve a few hours to do our shopping. However, we had to get the majority of it done in the morning, as we were heading to a ryokan in the evening. It would be easier to ship our luggage directly back to Haneda Airport…
