On our way to the Ghibli exhibit (read more here) at Mori Art Museum, Kaila and I chanced upon the Doraemon invasion at Roppongi Hills as well.  So funny that we are not actually aware that there’s such thing. What a perfect timing indeed, hitting two birds in one stone!

It was terribly windy that day, if you haven’t noticed. There was a typhoon passing by but not directly hitting Tokyo. The hanabi / matsuri in Chiba that our friend Yumi-san was about to attend was also cancelled. She actually invited both of us to attend (maybe next year?).

Hi Kawaii Travelers!

If you are in Tokyo until this weekend, you might want to take a side trip to Yokohama for the Pikachu outbreak!

Last week, my friends and I went to Yokohama to watch Pikachu shows. There were too many people so we were not able to take photos of the Pikachu dance parade itself.

At least, we were able to take a snap of the Pikachu float, haha!

Hi Kawaii Travelers!

Kaila and I went to Ghibli museum in Roppongi hills a few days ago and we’re excited to share this experience with you.

The Ghibli Museum started last July 7 and it will run until September 11 only. So if you are in Tokyo during this time, better not miss this rare Ghibli exhibit!

Pro-tip: Fall in line as early as 9:30 am so you won’t wait that much. We arrived at 10:00am and the line was already long.

Ahhh dream come true! We were able to ride the catbus!! Who says it isn’t real?

Can you guess which character this is?
