Japan Trip 2016: Day 8 Highlights

  1. β€’
    It was cooler today so I went to Shinjuku Gyoen
    It's a really nice garden in the heart of Shinjuku.
  2. β€’
    The azaleas were blooming everywhere
  3. β€’
    There were hundreds of school kids visiting too
    But it was still quite serene.
  4. β€’
    There was a display of roses and peonies
    This is just a small section! There were hundreds in every colour.
  5. β€’
    So pretty!
  6. β€’
    I almost didn't check the stamp as I've visited before
    But they have a new one!
  7. β€’
    Bought lots of pens and stationery gifts at Sekaido
    These are my favourite pens. I think I have all the colours now, including grey and tan.
  8. β€’
    Saw some Hello Kitty barriers
    Try and imagine this happening in your country. They would all be stolen overnight.
  9. β€’
    Tracked down the cat marshmallows
    Yes, they are edible! Individually wrapped for handy gifting too.
  10. β€’
    Skyped with my dad back in Scotland
    The time difference is still so strange. When my friends and family are starting their day, mine is almost over.
  11. β€’
    Checked my email and a kind stranger alerted me that 3 companies are selling pillows on Amazon with my illustrations 😑
    At least they have an easy reporting process.
  12. β€’
    All packed and ready to leave for Hiroshima tomorrow! πŸš…
