Things i ♥ about Japan

Since i’m kinda running out of things to blog i think the easiest is to go back to blogging about things you like.

I can do this all the time, every single day until everyone pukes sushi.

(Note to self: sound track to play for this post)

Here are some of the things (not all of them) i love about Japan. And some photos i have never published before. Took me a long time to go through all my photo archive to compile this!



Host family in Nagano



Host family in Sapporo



Host family in Nagoya



Best rice in the world



Amaebi sushi



First experience with snow in my life



First experience with sakura



Tea ceremony



My host family’s car in Nagano.



First time be a one-day teacher in a elementary school in Matsumoto.



Is this is the high school puppy love they always show in Japanese drama?



Outdoor hot spring



The police who found my lost CreamCakeCam™ in the snow and returned back to me.



Host mom who left me notes in the morning



Yuriko made me Mentaiko kake gohan everyday and since then i have my mentaiko obsession forever.



Host mom who always cries when you leave



Host mom who makes you cute bento when you leave



Japanese cigarette (yea i sneaked a few back then and i liked to see how long the ash can tahan without falling down wtf). And i understand why most Japanese girls smoke because their cigarette case is glittery pink and probably with hello kitty pattern and is raspberry flavored and the lighter is the shape of a cute lip gloss wtf it’s impossible not to be tempted into buying.



Ice cream in winter



Beautiful Kyoto



Spring Omatsuri in Nagoya



Ichigo shop in Tenri



Ichigo Miruku



Deers in Nara



Penguin parade at Osaka Aquarium



Sunset view at Odaiba



View from Tokyo tower. The road looks like the tower itself!!!!



Osechi during Japanese New Year



Pink cheeks you get from the cold weather



Night market during the festival



The scariest roller coaster ride i’ve ever seen in my life. This is in Mie. I didn’t like this place because i had my first huge fight with TK  here in Mie i stormed off and ran to the toilet to cry then was lost then was stranded in the cold with my phone battery dying i briefly thought that i would die in Mie wtf.




Then in the car he sent me this msg and everything was okay again.



Colorful Osaka



Best Indian curry ever. That’s the thing about Japan. Chinese food is not really chinese food and indian food is not really indian food in Japan.



Each pair is only RM38 wtf.



Discovered Duffy for the first time.



Fix my hair in Japan for the first time



Sazaenotsuboyaki #foodyoucantgetinmalaysia



A beautiful lake in Mitaka



Ghibli Studio was my favorite



A live fish that still moves after being sliced wtf. Posted a video and youtube and people scolded me from all over the world for being cruel.


Can’t wait to go to Japan again. And i go back to Japan all the time *cue Taylor Swift wtf

    My friend is on a plane for Tokyo right now, you’ve just posted about Japan…. all signs pointing me to go back. Wah.

    Scariest roller coaster I ever went on was at Fuji-Q Highland… it was famous for having the biggest drop or most inversions or something. I thought I would die.

  25. Coco says:

    Now I understand why you like Japan so much. You made so many pretty experiences over there. 🙂 I only was there once. But I’m planning on going there again next year (this year: New York). But I need to practise some japanese… Their English knowledge over there is really not that huge haha

  26. Trixie says:

    #32- I couldn’t read all of it but I’m guessing it was a pretty cute message seeing as it says 大好き in it -^^-

    I wish to someday be like you and travel to Japan 😀

  27. yv says:

  28. SY says:

    hey Cheesie,

    You have so many homestay experiences in Japan,I wonder what kind of programme u joined?

    and, the Japanese bf really sms like Japanese drama bf lol

    • David says:

      SY, i agree!

      Cheesies homestays give all of us insights into how kind the Japanese people are.

      All the more reason we should help Japan recover from the earthquake and tsunami.

      Japanese people are an important part of our world!

  31. duffylover says:

    Where to find your live sashimi/fish video post?

  32. yumei says:

    I’ll gladly read till I puke rainbow sushi. I totally know how you feel about Japan. I get a real strong feeling of furusato from the mere mention of the word “Japan”. <- LOL siao. Really pretty photos, and nice to have a top blogger having the same interests and consistently blogging about it. ^^ Taking my N2 in July and you're my motivation for passing haha O/

  33. nana says:

    seriously what a great post!! they may be old snapshots but it says so much! that text was so sweet too *cries* 😥 so cute^^ your host mom sounds like the shit!! so awesome.

  34. Abraxis says:

    I hope you can make it out here. Japan needs support. And visitors.

    Although I think it’s more do to the “flyjin” staying away, it took me 5 minutes to get through passport control at NRT. Much as it pains me to say this (cos I hate queueing), but Japan needs it’s queues back. Come visit! You won’t glow in the dark…

  35. Yoshi says:

    Did you have multiple host families or am I just imaging them? lol (sorry if its a stupid ?)
    xoxo ^_^
