Christmas in Japan

Merry Christmas everyone! For me Mine was two days ago! Literally…
Though it’s a little weird for me, and at the same time it’s not, I celebrated Christmas with my family here in Japan on the 24th! Christmas Eve. But that doesn’t matter to Japanese people. In fact, there is little to no Christianity here. Therefore, we just had dinner, just because it’s Christmas. 

It feels a little weird for me because this is the first Holiday I spent away from MY family in the U.S. as well as the first year without my Grannie. ): But I can adjust and I had a lot of fun too! My いもうと(Imouto= Sister) created a wonderful cracker platter!

She even designed the ginger as a rose!! She is so talented! (:

I had a wonderful time, and I received presents when I didn’t think I would so it was a nice surprise. But I still miss my family back home and I hope next year I can share the holidays with them.

Now Christmas here is a little more “romantic” than it is in the U.S. In the U.S. we have dinners with friends or family and open presents in the morning from Santa etc etc~ But in Japan, it’s more of a romantic kind of thing. Weird and cute all in one!

I also pushed out my Christmas video for Who and it’s starting to climb past 2,000 now! In just 2 days 😛 I LOVE MY FANS AND FRIENDS ❤

I really hope to pass my other video in views! Thank you everyone that helped and is supporting our channel! You really are a blessing!!!
Merry Christmas everyone!

The Day of Hardcore! 2012!

So after a few days of resting and deciding where my life is actually going…haha
I survived The Day of Hardcore! what the hell is The Day of Hardcore? I’m glad you asked!

Every year on August 5th, Japan celebrates Hardcore music! In what way you might ask?
FUCKING HARDCORE PARTIES! THAT’S WHAT! Something I’ve noticed most about these kind of Hardcore parties, especially this one, Japanese people can be themselves for once.
Everyday they confine themselves to a natural environment but when it’s time to party, they go nuts!!
Literally. haha But still! It was fantastic!

My friend Yumichan offered me a chance to match the sexy X-Rangers:

Who they dance for shows as the sexy gogo dancers for DJs!
All five of those girls are so remarkable!
Yumichan is fantastic in designing and sewing.
Dengenkichan is loveable and so full of energy!
Asakochan is gorgeous(beyond belief!) and is amazing with photography!
Rinkochan and Marichan are both the sexiest girls I have ever met! They’re brave, gorgeous and show who they are with their style and I LOVE it!

So our matched outfit was an Army Girl style! Sexy too ;3

If you are ever in Japan August 5th………..YOU BETTER GO TO THIS. It’s the best experience you can ever have!

Now I am officially apart of Japan.

So landing in Japan? Psshh that’s the easiest part! Visa? Now there’s a stopper for a good 3 months to a year. It is incredibly annoying and confusing and I just want to tear apart a bunch of small innocent things.
Work and time!! That’s what is takes!!
So I’ve visited Japan at least twice, and in those visits I was here for 90days~ Which was amazing and I have decided to live after that! You’d think after the countless countryside I’ve seen, amazing festivals, delicious food would change my thoughts. Either way! I’m here to stay :D! And I couldn’t be happier here! I just feel so natural here and it’s fantastic!

Yesterdays adventure wiped me out! But it was fun!
Me and my new friend Lauren ventured into the hot day of Harajuku(原宿) fun! We bought ice cream and window shopped and honestly, I extremely love Tokyo fashion! It’s so chilled and amazing haha! After that I decided to walk to Shinjuku station from Harajuku( which the Stations go Harajuku-> Yoyogi->Shinjuku) It’s a 40 minute walk basically! Sad thing is I did not wear comfortable walking shoes 😛 So my night ended with blisters! Yay!! Haha

I had my very first karaoke event starting at 19:30 and I was super excited!!!

It was a lot of fun!!! It was an international karaoke party with all you can drink!! Yes that means beer :D!
ビールが好き!(I love beer!)
It really was a grand adventure and I think I found a new thing to do every Friday! 😀

 

Later on the train ride home from Shinjuku to Shibuya, there were noisy foreigners. SO IF YOU EVER VISIT JAPAN. DO NOT BE LOUD ON THE TRAIN. SERIOUSLY.
Continuing on my way back to home, it was sardine time and that means crunch time! But as I was leaving for my station….a brave old man took a quick pinch to my bottom then tried to cover up by looking at his watch! Sneaky old man >:[ YES IT HAPPENS. NOW YOU SEE THE TRUTH UNFOLD IN THE SARDINE TRAIN TIME.

If you live in Japan and want to attend the karaoke event; please check out the site below!!!
