Eeeekers so this is the first chance I've had to actually filter through all of the stuff that I brought back from Japan what with the Christmas missing baggage/ snow stranded scenario and then the quick turn around before I whipped off to Taiwan!
The amount of souvenirs that I dragged back is actually outrageous and I'm still going through the extra suitcase that I had to buy purely to pack up all of the excess trinkets!!! On top of that, bits and pieces that I couldn't shoehorn into my cases had to be whacked in a big box which only just recently made its way back from the ship!!!! Japan was a dream come true in terms of shopping and treat collecting and I now have a ridiculous amount of unnecessary stuff that I love!!! Treasures include 5 vintage kimono, a pair of awesome Geta shoes that I had custom made, numerous Bento boxes, 27 pairs of socks, plenty of chopsticks, a bundle of Japanese craft books, accessories, unbelievable amounts of stationary, a hand crafted lantern, 15 puffy animal paper balloons, random materials and work equipment, kitchen stuff, sushi moulds,too many Hello Kitty items, ornaments....you get the idea. Totally ridiculous. Either way I love these bits and pieces!!!
Also while I'm here I thought I would share some pictures from my time in Tokyo as I never got around to that either up until now! As I mentioned during my time in residence over in Japan I went up to Tokyo just before Christmas to work on my photoshoot as well as spend my birthday in the city!!! Fun Times and Tokyo is one of my all time favourite places....so I took about 2000 photos, but I shall spare you the slideshow and just show you a few below.....
Love and Sushi!
