{Shooting} JAPAN · Bungo Stray Dogs Tribute Trip

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-34-22-pm

The last of the photos I took was of the tribute trail of Bungo Stray Dog. After that, I gave up using the camera as I was too busy with my phone, camera and the dolls.

Of course, we have to start with chinatown. Ahhhhh!~ It feels weird to see a Chinatown in a different country. It made me feel like visiting as many Chinatowns as possible around the world.

I left this iconic place for the last, even though it was in the middle of our trail.

We saw these flowers on the way, and were reminded of the tulips in the countryside. Therefore, I could not resist snapping a few photos

{Shooting} JAPAN · Sand Dunes

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-28-32-pm

We have to take the boys to the desert for the ending theme of “Free!!!” But to say desert is wrong. It is actually the sand dunes. I have never seen such seemingly endless field of sand before

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-21-12-pm

We went to visit the “Conan Town” too, but it started to rain heavily with strong winds, and so I only have photo of the train we took to get there. The station closed as soon as the train arrived at the station. Which means we got a chance to use their bus system, which is so different from the ones I have experienced in Malaysia, Austria, and of course locally.

I say “Free!!!”, but this place reminds me of “Fafner” too!!

It’s by the sea and I can see totally relate the anime to this place.

From so high up, it’s sooooo majestic? The power with which the waves crashed into the rocks. Damn powerful!

we will be reaching the deserts soon!

{Shooting} JAPAN · Temple + Bamboo Forest

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-16-57-pm

This time, we really have to travel out far. It’s out in the countryside and to be honest, it is such a joy to be able to walk in this countryside. It is tiring, and we were breathing hard, but it is still sooo beautiful with the tulips that were growing along the way. As it was still early on in the travel, I did not give in and spend on the vending machines we saw randomly on the side of the streets.

The tulips are not bad either! This place is full of them!

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-18-52-pm

We reached the temple after a loooooooonnnngg walk

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-19-05-pm

and this is the famed place which is beautiful all year round

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-19-33-pm

We saw more sakura on the way back… as well as students returning home. There were cheerful noises as we passed by them.

The bamboo forest, on the other hand, is full of visitors. It was hard to take a photo but still, it is beautiful. One day, I hope to come without a lot of people. But that involves one too many early mornings. One day!!!

moving onto the next location!

{Shooting} JAPAN · Fushimi Inari

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-14-41-pm

Travelling from place to place took so long, but it was so worth it.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-15-57-pm

I love the entire feel of the area. While it is not much different from the environment in Japan in general, there’s something nice about the temple grounds. Also, I have no photos, but this is the first time I tried Ichigo Daifuku, and I was wowed! It became my top favourite Japanese food immediately! Sorry, croquette and mochi taiyaki and takoyaki!

One of the few tourist photos we took.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-16-20-pm

The Entrance. It’s so huge it really feels weird from zero distance…. I know the size, but when you are there, staring at it straight on.. it really feels …. like I am so small.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-16-36-pm

This is the view from the top of the Fushimi Inari. I was ambitious, but we came from so far, so it makes sense for us to try for the top.

Till the next venue~

{Shooting} JAPAN · OSAKA Aquarium

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-09-17-pm

We are herreeeee~ The aquarium visit was on a rainy day…. which seems to match the water theme here

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-08-46-pm

I am in love with these decorations~

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-09-00-pm

You can tell how much effort the people in the aquarium put into the place.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-10-53-pmOtters!!! I didn’t have the chance to take photos of the otters here, and the first photos of them were in Japan. They move SO fast, it was so hard to capture them properly.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-14-08-pm

The spotted seal reminds me of the brown bear bean bag!!! My love for that beanbag is obvious.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-12-12-pm

Why did this stingray look so cute???

Sousuke!! The Aquarium was dark, and when it appeared, everyone screams Jinbeii!!! Other than me and Rin, and one more person somewhere behind whom I did not see due to the darkness

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-11-44-pm

{Shooting} JAPAN · Deer + Gundam

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-06-23-pm

Remember how I forgot the photos in the SD card until I decided to spend more time during COVID to re-familiarise myself with my camera? Well, that did not happen since I found these photos and ended up editing them. There’s a lot of photos. so I will split them up into parts.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-04-44-pm

The schedule for Japan was packed. I was very very worried all the time that we would not be on time and miss out on certain parts of our trips. Due to the packed schedule, we woke up VERY early to start sight-seeing.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-05-14-pm

But the fresh air…. ahhh that is really great!! It is also great to not have to experience the train in its peak.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-06-00-pm

The weird thing is, when I see these photos again, Every Single Time, I could feel the fresh air and great environment in Japan. It’s really remarkable. I have been to so many countries… taken photos of so many countries, but none of the photos could bring me back as much as Japan’s does.

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-05-39-pm

Ohhhh the deers were cute but so so soooo mischevious

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-06-35-pm

After the Nara Deer Park, we made our way to Odaiba for the Gundams. Hehehehe

I HAVE to take more than one photo, obviously~

Screen-Shot-2021-08-12-at-10-08-11-pm

The Cherry Blossoms in that area is much more prettier in my opinion

photography / SAGA YUUI VX

hello~ I forgot about these photos that I found recently in the SD card while trying to find an SD card I could work with. Oikawa was one of my first nendos. I had to buy them from online auctions and my friend helped me with the purchase and shipping, which turned out to be sooo expensive. In the end, they re-release the nendos after about 1-2 years, so it felt like money was wasted. TT___TT But these photos would not be possible if I had ordered the nendos via the re-release.

I have had so much trouble with this series. I am glad when it is all over. If editing people in photos are hard, editing ancient people in photos are harder. There’s too many things to take note, too many things to edit.
