DAY 14 - FEUDAL JAPAN MEETS POKEMON


On todays mission, we head to the Pokemon Centre (no Nurse Joys unfortunately) and get some food (not at the Pokemon Centre, just around the area). What I actually did most of the day was shopping at Tokyu Hands, but my photos don't really show that. Anyway, PLEASE BRING TOKYU HANDS TO AUSTRALIA!!! PLEASE!!!

DAY 10 - YOU WISH, JELLYFISH


WOAH. 600+ photos to sort through. Took a while, but i managed to get it down to a reasonable number. We went the Osaka KAIYUKAN Aquarium today, one of the biggest in the world they claim. It was very difficult to take photos here, through the thick glass, the reflections, it's very dark and the dolphins move so damn fast, and it was so crowded so you couldn't stay too long in one area. Anyhooo, some photos were very rewarding, especially the jellyfish section, also be sure to check out my Jellyfish video in the next post.

Last day in Kyoto. We check out some more temples. Seems like I was the only one who was hung over (or was it just Japanese stoicism?).

DAY 8 - KYOTO (PART 1)


Warning: i took a lot of photos today. I tried to kill most of the photos, but i liked them all so much. Sota, Miwa, Ari and I head to Kyoto for a few days. Kyoto was freezing and i wasn't wearing much. Stupid me! (Haha but as i type this, i'm actually in Singapore with the Aircon on.)

PAMYU PAMYU

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Tsukema Tsukeru

Every holiday somewhere needs an offical song. This would have to be mine. This song is very popular in Japan atm. Can't stop singing it...and fark it's weird. Ari says she is just singing about fake eye-lashes.

Kyary doesn't have many songs, but another good one is PONPONPON

SMARBO

Robot vacuum cleaner from the future. I don't think it's at the stage where i would want to buy one. It's still very expensive and doesn't work that well. It's almost $1000 AUD.
