Traveling Back in Time, Yilan 宜兰, Taiwan

I felt close enough to Taiwan before I traveled there. Growing up watching tv dramas and movies, following stars and singers from Taiwan, and later on getting to know friends who came from there…… I’d always had this weird nostalgic feeling for the place without having visited for even once. …

Japan Pt. 8: Six-hour road trip and first impression of Tokyo

Here it comes the final chapter of my Japan travel series that’s been going on forever. It’s my third time visiting Japan on the blog(and in real life), and you can’t tell already, I’m very much hooked by what the country has to offer. A six-hour road trip from Kaga to Tokyo refreshed my impress …

Japan Pt.7: Ryokan Experience in Kaga,加贺

Traditional B&Bs in Japan are called Ryokans. There you’ll get to really experience the traditional hospitality from Japan, most likely sleep on tatamis and futons, enjoy the in-house onsen and food… If it’s difficult to create a picture in your head, in my opinion it’s something close to …

Japan Pt.5: Kimono Lunch & Kenroku-En 兼六园

I wouldn’t have guessed before, but wearing a different kimono each time visiting Japan has become a bit of a tradition for me. A kimono pattern that reflects the time of year and mood of that particular day makes a special mental note for the trip. I wore purple with gold threads the first time …

Japan Pt.4: Kanazawa(金沢) By The Sea

Japan Pt.3: Arashiyama岚山 & Dinner at Jugyuan 十牛庵

Another day, another outfit. A winter skirt is such a great layering piece to both keep you warm, and injecting some femininity back into the look. Teamed up with a pair of trusty old heat-tech leggings and over-the-knee boots, I’m ready to walk about Kyoto in a cold but sunny winter day.

Japan Pt.2: Kinkakuji 金阁寺 & A Great Japanese Cuppa

Another day waking up to a beautiful, bright morning. I returned to the safe combo of a jumper dress and pair of over-knee boots. It’s a fast, no-brainier way of dressing up warm and stylish, when you just don’t want to spend too long on deciding what to wear.

Japan Pt.1: Is Fushimi Inari Just A Big Tourist Trap?

Fushimi Inari, if you don’t recognise the name, you might recall seeing a picture of endless red gates prolonging into the mountain somewhere, and most like have wowwwed or awwwwed at it. It is statistically proved to be the most visited attraction of Japan for the past 5 years. And it indeed is …

Japan Pt. 0: Accommodation Hunting Before We Start
