Japan Tokyo Disneyland! and food

Hey everyone! sorry for the really late update! I have had a lot going on, and everything has been so hectic! (in a good way of course) and before I knew it was March! this year is going so quick!

So continuing about my trip to Japan I thought that this post I should write about my trip to Disneyland!
We only went for the one day and I had a lot of fun.
The day started out very clear and sunny, but at around about 3-4 it started to rain....for the rest of the day. Would you believe it! The whole month I was there and it only rained twice! And the day we went to Disneyland it was one of those days.
Luckily they sold umbrellas there which where only 1000 yen each! which I thought was pretty good.
So here are a bunch of photos I took while I was there ~

We went on September the 8th! as that's the day they start with all the Halloween things! it looks so cool! And they had so many decorations!

Our first ride was the 'Pirates of the Carribian'. Here is the outside of it, there was a long que but it went pretty quickly.

As we where getting closer to get on the ride we saw this, yes that's right there is a restaurant inside the ride, which I think looks beautiful! 

Im really sorry I didn't take better pictures, but I was having such a fun time! And then it got dark VERY early/quickly, annnnnnd rained a lot, but we still had a great time!
So next Im going to show you a bunch of photos of my food while I was over there, however I don't think that's such a good idea because now I'm really hungry :(

Ok I realized while I was uploading the photos that I took photos of mainly the sweet stuff, but that's what I have, a sweet tooth :( (and all the iced coffees as well and it was very hot) believe it or not, despite eating all this I somehow lost weight while I was over there, BUT that is probably due to the fact I did walk a lot more while I was over than what I do in England, becuase I drive everywhere in England, not to mention the fact the shinjuku train station is HUGEEE and walking in that station feels like foreverrrrrrrrrr.

So thats all I have to share today, seems like a bit of boring post, but I hope you enjoyed it, til next time ~

Japan trip, Sanrio land!

So here are some more pictures and tales of my trip to Japan when we went to Sanrio Land and Disney Land (not on the same day though, that would be toooooo much)
So Sanrio Land is inside a big building, there is no outside what so ever, when you arrive at the entrance it looks like a grand hall/Palace.

Heres the entrance of the Building.

Here are our tickets and the entrance when you go inside the building.

Ok so you go in and everything just looks adorable, I mean the outside of the building looks like some wonderful magical fairy tale-like place, so I was really excited to see the inside!
You then have to go down some escalators which take you in the the main bit of sanrio land, and as it happened as soon as we went down there was a performance happening, however it was coming to the end of it, but at least we got to see some of it, I did take some pictures of the performance, however I did also take videos of it as well, but is on my other camera, hopefully I can upload it to you tube as soon as I get it sorted out. 

It was so cute, and cheery! It was amazing that it was the first thing that we saw when we arrived down there.
So after the performance the hall had cleared we started to have a wonder around.

Look at how clear and beautiful it is!!
There is one ride there that we went on, there was a small line for it, but its basically a boat ride around, with a lot of the cute characters and things, I filmed the whole ride which hopefully I will be able to put up soon, but I didn't take any pictures while we where going around on the ride, sorry! but believe me when I say it was so adorable!

There is also a hello kitty bell that you can ring which is up in the tree.

So after we had a look round there is Lady Hello kitty's house which you can walk around.

So once you have finished the tour of Lady Kitty's house you can then have a picture with lady Kitty herself, and can choose to buy the picture at the end (you cant take a photo on your phone though)
We chose not to buy the picture however.

Once you are out of the 'House' you are then welcomed in the gift shop, which is huge, as you can imagine I took a million photos of that as well, as it was just so sparkly and adorable.

get ready for another tirade of photos.

isn't it the cutest?! I didn't actually buy anything for myself when I was there though, but I have a lot of fun looking around and looking at all the different things, I just loved the shop in general! so pretty!

Ok I had a great day! but would I ever go again? eh probably not, If Im completely honest although me and my friends had a fun time its kind of boring there, its more of a family place for parents who have young children, also there where a few couples there as well. The shop was busy as lots of people where buying things and it was interesting to look around, but it was just kind of eh, theres not really a lot to do there. I mean if you have never been there before then yes check it out for yourself, but I dont think I personally would visit it again, especially as the tickets are around 3000 (or 6000) yen per person, plus tax on top of that.
But with that being said me and my friends had a fun day ^^
Next blog post will be about Disney land!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween >:3!!
Until next time ~

Japan, Tokyo part 1

So the next few blog posts are going to be about my trip to Japan, I was out there for just under 4 weeks and had such an amazing time! I did take my other camera with me which has a lot of videos on so hopefully one day soon I can make a video with all the things I filmed while I was over there.

So the first 2 days we where there we mainly went to Shibuya, just because we where so excited, and none of us had been clothes shopping for a long time, let alone had girly time because of work and everything, So we took full advantage of this holiday.

As you can guess we went to 109, We browsed around first as we where going up each floor, we then realized we where pretty hungry so we decided to get a little something in 109. There are 2 cafes near the top of the 109 building, me and Emily went there a few times last year and really liked the food in there so we decided that was a good place to stop and get our energy back! we just got cake and an ice cafe au late.

I had the banana and chocolate cake which was gorgeous, it also had gold flakes on it as well. This place also has other food besides just cake, and also do an english menu but the waiters and waitresses don't really speak english, they are really nice though :)

We browsed around a lot of the shops, though on the first day the only thing I bought was this d.i.a dress/top that was in the sale at 4000 yen! I was really worried that they would run out or wouldn't be there the next day so I got it there and then! Heres a picture of the top and me wearing it ^^

By the time we had browsed and bought a couple of bits it was dark outside, so we wondered around shibuya for a bit. While we where there we also went to Akihabara a lot, so here are some different pictures I have taken at night [some in shibuya, Akihabara, shinjuku and harajuku]

Ok so I have A LOT more photos on my other camera, however for some reason its not working at the moment, but hopefully I can get it working soon and upload more photos, Im going to spread my trip out on to separate blog posts because we did a lot and I have so many pictures to show you all as well as things I bought while I was out there that I just think it would be too much for one post.
So I will do another post next week, we went to disney land and sanrio land, not to mention there was a games expo and just so much stuff happened!
So until next week ~
