Travel Diaries: Portland

By on July 9, 2018

Over Memorial weekend, my college best friend, Kristina, and I reunited in Portland! She flew from NYC and I flew from the Bay Area. I haven’t seen her for about 3 years since we’ve last seen each other. It’s ridiculous, yes I know, but I’m so glad that we finally got to see each other after so long. We did a mix of things in Portland from nature-related things to tastings to exploring.

Travel Diaries: Akasaka, Roppongi, Ebisu, Daikanyama, Nakameguro, Shimo Kitazawa

By on July 1, 2018

The last couple of days in Japan, we mainly explored different burrows, eat lots, and relaxed. We went to Tokyo Tower, SHIBA PARK, Zojōji Temple, Kyu-Shiba-rikyu Garden, Tokyo Imperial Castle, Nogi-jinja Shrine, Nori Shrine, Roppongi Hills (shopping/dining/entertainment zone), Sake Shop Fukumitsuya, Tsutaya Tokyo, other places that I forgot to list on top of my head.

One of the days,  we were able to meet up with one of my friends, Victoria. We went to revolving sushi and then did some kaorking.

We got to go to my favorite bar, New York Bar, at the Park Hotel, but it wasn’t as great as I remembered it. I was pretty disappointed with my drink. The view there and the live music somewhat made up for it, but I don’t believe I would go there again.

On our last day, we went to visit the shrine next to our Air BNB,  Hie Shrine, did some more shopping and explored around Shibuya one last time. Look at the eel in front of Don Quixote! I have never seen an eel that long before. For dinner, we met up with Michael’s friends from Stanford’s exchange program.

Yay, thanks for making it all the way to the 3rd post! It took me a while, I know, but Japan travel diary is complete. I’m behind on posts since I have been taking some trips and been busy with the end of the quarter earlier this month, but next up is travel diaries in Portland!

Xx,
