Doraemon Invasion in Roppongi 

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!

Ghibli Museum in Roppongi Hills

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?

Takashi Murakami Flower Cafe in Roppongi Hills

Hello Kawaii Travelers!

On my birthday last January 3, I visited a super kawaii pop-up cafe by Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami (in collaboration with Hills Cafe) at Roppongi Hills. If you are going to travel to Japan until January 31 and you love Murakami’s art, I think that you shouldn’t miss this cafe!
