how do I bloge
I'm going to Japan in a couple of weeks so that inspired me to finally put up the photos from last spring's trip (other than the ones of my Free! fan trip to Iwami). They're all in a collection on flickr but mixed in with the 2011 trip photos (i only keep my flickr organised thematically) -- the newest albums are listed at the top, and a bunch of spring photos have been added to the Kōkyogaien and Ueno summer albums (the new ones are with all the cherry blossoms :D)
Anyway, some of my favs are under the cut.
View from a shrine atop a hill in Iwami, Tottori
Replica farmhouse from Hida Folk Village, which is an open air museum that demonstrates how folk in Japan's mountain regions used to live.
Tiny Buddha statues on an altar in Hida Folk Village.
View outside the window of the apartment I was staying in (Azabu, Tokyo). Taken on March 29, 2014 (the morning after I arrived).
The above view but on April 6, 2014.
Ice cream vending machine in Tottori City.
This might be the world's largest tedddy bear? I don't care, it's the world's GREATEST teddy bear. From Teddy Bear Eco Village which is the actual happiest place on earth.
One of the many incredible views from the very top level of the Tokyo Skytree.
Guest reception area at our ryokan (Oyado Koto no Yume) in Takayama.
On the street outside Roppongi Hills.
The replica globe at the Miraikan. There is an area below it with benches where you can lie down and just watch it turn.
Two kinds of sakura at the Imperial Palace garden.
Food stalls in Ueno Park.
Hopefully after this year's trip I will upload the photos soon after I come back. ^^
