If anyone actually reads this i'll love them forever <3
/lots of detail cuz i'm so fucking enthusiastic i'll explode
-edit 10/11th idk of december...i'm not going to make Japan. whoops.
Sorry 15year old Emma your aspirations will not come true
I'm finally getting around to planning the Japanese holiday i've wanted since I was 15, its been 6 years in the planning, and I was going to wait for February 2012 for it, but i'm sick of waiting so i'm going in November 2011 and if I like it i'll be going again every while.
Looking through a tonne of sites, its pretty affordable for me, flights seem to average €700 return, which is amazing, with only one stop over in Heathrow, which is where i'll fail XD; I mean, I'm terrible at navigating airports. Tho i'm not sure how long is good enough for a stay, I mean ;-; personally i'd love a month but I have a feeling i'd need €3,000,4,000 easily for a stay like that. I might talk to friends that have been there!
I'm having so much fun trawling through sites to see what looks fun, I mean, i'm going to get to Kyoto most definitely, if I can manage, Nara as well. I'm going to start off in Tokyo I think, to Narita airport. I'm such a nerd I want to go see things like Saiho-ji Moss temple , which you have to write to in advance etc. I'm gonna try stay in Ryokan, and for a couple of nights in Kyoto stay in an inn, so I can get a traditional-ish experience. BD i'mma go to onsen too, I hate my bodeh but idc, i'll go to one!
I want to go to a bar as well and drink saké, which will be fooking amazing! I'm gonna go alone because to be fair, i'd prefer it that way I think, I mean, its like an uber personal thing to me! :>
i'll be a terrible person and stalk high schoolers for people like me and Ris/just ask adorable people for their pictures! :> I wanna see can I get salary men to come for drinks, and ... D:< against my better judgement, go yakuza spotting :<
I'll pick up present-o's for my close friends that I wub :> for I will go to visit Akihabara for this, because people are loved!
Yayogi park while i'm in Tokyo is a must, but personally I don't feel the need to stay in Tokyo forever, despite loving anime, I do love Japanese culture a lot! :<
I mean, in the Ryokan it'll be amazing, I can have traditional food, sleep on tatami mats D: I will adore it.
Plus I have a year to improve my Japanese, to more than, 'chizubagu onegai shimasu', 'Toi re wa doku desu ka?' 'Kore wa Tanaka san', 'shitsurei desu ka, o namae wa nan doku desu ka' D:< SEE HOW POOP THAT IS, ITS EVEN WORSE WITH MY ACCENT. I've talked with a lovely Japanese man before, Hiroshi san :< he could barely understand my Japanese when I spoke it in my accent D: it was like ARGGGGH ಠ益ಠ
so i'll work on enunciating it better etc. BD plus i'd be up for a Japanese romance D:< how sad am I, but Japanese people are adorable and cute ;0; <3 plus it could be Gackt :>
Plus Japan will be adorable with the snow and stuff UWAAAAAAAA, I really love snow so i'll love that time of year, I mean, I majorly dig winter bb! And I can buy lots of new coats and stuff for it! eeeee ;w;
