I told you right, that I spent my hole weekend in Harajuku at La Foret.. because there is FASHION WEEK here! ❤
So much and just soo little money.. so much time and soo much great stuff and its an autumf fair now in this great departmentstore with 5 floor with sugoi fashion! I almost bought this super expensive legwrmers (?) just because this gorgeous japanese salesgirl was talking to me and we had a conversation all in Japanese and she was just so sweet and said my nihongo was great 😉
But no, I didnt in the end, thank god though I just cant afford it to be honest!
Well, I saw two fashionshows and alot of crazy things these days and just had a blast! Then I´ve tried to have a relaxed week (not study though, I study more intense then ever) but moneywise! I cook (?) more in the guesthouse now and that is good.. well the food isnt really oishii (delicious) but its good not to eat out all the time ne! 😉
Yesterday (Thursday) I went to a concert with Bamei, my Thaiwanese friend, and it was great! The live-house was really similary to my work but the stage was bigger and ALOT more lights and better soundsystem;) It was Takeshi birthday so in the end of the gig, when he had left the stage, we took out glowsticks and started screaming ” Ta.ke.shi”! Finally he came back in and everybody at the audience (300-400 people) was singing Happy Birthday and waved their glowing stick:) Awesome ❤
Here are some pics from my week here!
I havnt been good updating you on what is happening here, but its mostly study study study!
But this friday-sunday I have a holiday and what is excellent is that its FASHION WEEK!
La Foret, a huge departmentstore in Harajuku, has a Fashion Week that ends this weekend!
I went there on Friday and yesterday (Saturday) and today I will just leave soon to go there again!
LaForet Museum (up on the 6th floor) has a venue that alot of different shops, companies, artfairs is holding exibition and stuff, and for this week there is Autumn Fairs and markets up there together with a stage and yesterday there was a live interview with Kyari Pamyu Pamyu who is a fashion blogger in Japan and super kawaii! I know her from before and Facebook and also because Sebastian Masuda, the owner of
6%DOKIDOKI, has helped direct and style her musicvideo PONPONPON.
I acctually understood alot of the interview which Im very happy about! My japanese lessons are really paying of:)
After that, and alot of japanese girls screaming KAWAII ❤ there was a fashionshow and allthese super sweet girls that are photomodells in alot of fashion magazines in Japan where entering the stage and walked the catwalk that was just on the floor dividing the crowd of wxcited teen-japanese girls screaming!
After that crazy experience there was a concert and what can I say! I love my weekends in Tokyo!
Now I need to hurry to Harajuku because n.Nauto will have a fashionshow which I would LOVE to see! And also its the last day of fashion week so I need to look aroun and MAYBE get something 😉
My sunday was so nice! Nishiyobi wa sugoi desu! Daisuki desu!
First, Daikanyama! A beautiful little district on Tokuyu Toyoko Line from Shibuya and its only one stop with the local train! Its such a beautiful place to walk around in with small shops and coffe places and restaurants!
I met my dear friend Eri there and we ate pasta at a cute little place.
After that we just walked around and I found this gorgeous store with
After that I went back to Komazawa (where I live) to meet up with my darling Bamei and we went to Meguro (2 stops from Shibuya) and met a friend of hers that invited us to have dinner with him at a restaurant with delicious food! My japanese got tested today though I had to speak more to bamei and her friend which english is good but not comes as naturel as japanese. After dinner we went to a place where we ended up at the 25th floor at this little room with the most fantastic view over tokyo tower
and after a while the room was filled with 30 guests that was invited to this privat concert of furusawa takeshi.
Its a friend of Bamei that sings and playes guitar and he has a big concert coming up in Harajuku in the end of September. He had a great voice and Im so happy that I could be a part of this event as the only european there 🙂
After this great event we went to Roppongi and sat at a bar to look at people and then we went back home after a gorgeous Sunday in Tokyo!
I just can´t tell you how much I loved this weeken, except from getting a toung infection so I had to take out my sweet piercing since 10 years back!
I have just studied my sweet behind of and litterally beat my self up for this test in school just to find out the test itself isnt that hard, so this weekend was really something I was looking forward to!
Friday, of with friends eating mexican food that was yummy! Then Harajuku where they had a sale of 83%.. have you ever experienced ANYTHING beeing 83% off? I hadnt so I just HAD to find this store, and so I did and I bought alot of stuff which I will sell to you back home in sweden (*^ ^*)
But if that day gave me a thrill, it was nothing compared to my saturday which took me back to Kamakura and finally the beach!
They said that this weekend is kind of the last summer-going to autumn one so If I wanted to be able to swim in the great pacific this was it!
For you that wants to take this trip (and you do) just start from:
Shibuya – Yokohama (Tokuyu Toyoko Line) around 20min
Yokohama – Kamakura (JR Yokosuka Line) aprox 30 min
The ticket for one way is about 650Yen.
When you hit kamakura, get a One day free ticket for 580Yen and you jump on to Enoden electric railway that is a really small local train that takes you to Fujisawa and between you can jump on and of this ride at all these stops which have the great Buddha (Hase), and alot of hidden temples and the train takes you just along the shore and beach that goes all the way to Enoshima where you can see alot of surfers (yummy) and also walk over the bridge to Enoshima Island which is a paradise on earth! There you can walk on old staircases carved out in rocks all the way up to the top of the island that has a park and a watch tower. If you feel abit tired, just pay a small fee and take escalaters all the way up, but I suggest you walk bcos then and only then you really can see the magnificant view and all the neko (cats) that lay around everywhere looking all cute and relaxed in the sun!
And to swim in the waves of the pacific ocean..I can almost feel tears burning just talking about it! The view and the beach and the people! Ureshii! (so happy!) ❤
This is a days trip everyone should do visiting Tokyo for more than a week!
I had the chanse to try out my japanese bikini to which made me so frickin HOT ❤ (*^-^*)/ but now its all sandy AND because I choose a part of the beach which has blck sand (kawaii) I have black sand all over and in it now that wont come out. But hey, who cares right! Im living a tokyo-white life here and pimped my keitai all tokyo-white with things bought in Kamakura!
Hi my wonderful new followers (and older ones ofcourse)!
I got myself an infection in my tonge and had to seperat myself from my piercing which Ive had since 10 years back! I know it may seem stupid to cry over this but its been there through some very important times in my life and now I feel an emptyness I havnt for a long time!
But to fulfill that emptyness I listen to music and I have some great swedish bands I want to support and if you could help me find these guys some gigs I would be more than happy!
Preferebly in Japan but otherwise is fine to! Would just be sweet to help them get their music out there.
Oh Im sorry, gomenazai, but I have just been picking my brain for the two last days because I have a test tomorrow (Thursday)!
Its my second one and this time its totemo muzukashi dest (very difficult) and mostely I think it is because its IN JAPANESE!
No, Im only kidding:)
But its on 7 new chapters and it IS in Japanese and 7 new chapters in 2 weeks is alot to cope with and my brain just want to deal with all new facts and not push any more stuff in there for a day or maybe a week (0-0)
Well, yesterday I was like a mad woman and after picking my brain (and apparently my hair to though when I looked myself in the mirror I had created some kind of afro-hairstyle) I was soo tired!
I had got some hilarious videoclips from my darling and you know when you are tired on the edge of crying or laughing at EVERYTHING! Well I picked the last one and just couldnt stop laughing for a long time! Such a relief!
I really needed that after I had a really shitty day the day before!
This time of year seemes to be hard and I always get stressed out and knowing that its less then a month until my moms 5 year aniversary for when she passed away is doesnt help! You can feel so small and so alone sometimes, even in a city like Tokyo!
I just had to get alot out of my system and I certanly did this Tuesday!
Well, whatever happens tomorrow on the test, I know I tried my best with all the hard work I put in to those books these couple of days!
This is a look I really like! One of many here is the glorious life the Tokyo-gaijin!
Weekends in Tokyo! How can you not like them.
This Saturday and Sunday there was a SriLanka festival in Yoyogi park.
The same place where I went to that Brazilian one.
Alot of food stands, omiyage (souveniers), people and music!
On stage there was a performance of what I guess was a kind of famous man “singing” and all these bollywood dancers where entering the stage in beautiful dresses and dances and “sings” with him in these ballads. Why I do “this” is because Im not sure they are singing or just mime to the lyrics in the song (^¨^) Either way its fun watching! AND the food is oishii desu!
After the festival, because it ended at 7pm, I went to a potlock party my school arranged for all their students, Japanese as well as gaijins (foreigners). Everyone brings something to eat and you get alot of different stuff to nibble on during your mingle session, and you who knows me KNOWS that Im a proffessional mingler (‘-‘)
It was great, some new friends to hook up with and everything ended at 10.20pm. the night was still young so I hooked up with some friends at an Izakaya (bar) and after some drinks and alot of laughs we went to rock west, listening to one of my friends friend DJ:ing and its really a great place and the people Im with is so funny and we ended up dancing barefoot on the floor. I came back home around 04.00am and with a bright yet tired smile I crashed in my bed!
Im trying two looks today! Which one do you prefer?
So, Im planning on buying some speciel items for anyone that are interested and I have looked at Anjelic Pretty and Vivienne Westwood
and h.Nauto and ofcourse 6%DOKIDOKI! I will also buy alot of really cool socks because people, you can´t call yourself a fashionista if you dont have your socks in order (^-^)
So please stay tuned and in the meantime look at these wonderful girls out in Yoyogi Park this wonderful Thursday in Tokyo!
Well today was unexpected! I ended up at Tokyo Dome City, watching football, chearing for Bulls! GoGo BULLS!! Apperently they didnt hear my cries for victory though they lost the game.. pretty hard I might add!
But surely a great thing to do a day in Tokyo when tomorrow is my day off
And walking out to Tokyo Dome City, there it was! The one thing I´ve been wondering about since I first got here… this beauty!
Sad thing is that its closed because of a death-accident a year ago:(
I just really wanted to go here for this ride..
A really great evening in Tokyo I might say!!
