I confess, during my trip to Japan I bought way too much otaku merchandise. But rather than show every single thing I bought, I thought it’d be easier and more enjoyable to compact it into my top five favourite purchases. There’s quite a variety within the top five, and surprisingly enough, four of the five… Continue reading My Top 5 Otaku Souvenirs from Japan!
You may remember my non-stop posts from when I was in Japan last year and earlier this year. While I had a lot of fun writing about my experience, I struggled to share the merchandise I had bought. It was hard having posts with 20+ pictures and writing about my excitement for them didn’t feel… Continue reading Persona 4 & 5 Merch Haul ~ Otaku Shopping in Japan
During my trips to Japan, as a girl on the curvier side, clothes shopping was an absolute nightmare. I saw so many cute dresses and skirts I just wanted to grab but knew they would barely fit past my thighs, that was if I could even get it on in the first place! There are… Continue reading Body Inclusive J-Fashion store ‘Punyus’ Has Opened an International Store – Let’s Take a Look!
Following on from my otome post, I thought I’d share my experience shopping for yaoi and general Boys Love items. Unfortunately, this post will be quite a bit shorter than my other Japan posts. There really isn’t too much BL merchandise in Japan, definitely more than the West but not as much as any fujoshi… Continue reading It’s Fujoshi Time! Enjoying Boys Love in Tokyo
No trip to Tokyo would be complete without trying to buy as much Otome merchandise as humanly possible. As many of you otome fans will know, it’s near impossible to get any really nice goods overseas, and when you can find them, they’re insanely overpriced. So while I had the chance, I figured I’d spend… Continue reading The Otome Experience in Tokyo!
Another reblog from my travel blog. This time I visited a shopping centre in Odaiba, a man-made island in Tokyo Bay. One of the floors of DECKS is completely dedicated to the 1960s with old arcade games, sweet shops and lots of fun and crazy things to do. Check out my post below! From the… Continue reading Stepping into the Past at Odaiba’s DECKS Mall – Merry Adventures
Arcades are one of the flashiest parts of a trip to Japan. Often 3 floors or more, you can find fighting games, rhythm games, pachinko machines and lots and lots of prize machines. Mid last year I got crazily hooked on prize machines, unfortunately there is a limited variety in Australia, and they are crazy… Continue reading Playing for Prizes at Japanese Arcades ~ My Wins & Top Tips!
Another Tokyo post, besides checking out all the anime stuff I also went to visit some flower festivals. The Shibazakura festival was by far my favourite one, I went to the one in Chichibu which was about 1.5 hours outside of Tokyo. I hope you enjoy the blog post and pictures 🙂 While I did… Continue reading A Blanket of Pink! Viewing the Shibazakura at Chichibu’s Hitsujiyama Park (2018) — Merry Adventures
Akihabara and Ikebukuro are locations in Tokyo pretty synonymous with otaku culture. But a new place has slowly but surely started to pop up, that is, Nakano Broadway. I gotta say, looking at Youtube videos and blog posts about the place, I was hyped to check it out. The ‘broadway’/ shopping complex is only a… Continue reading Nakano Broadway ~ Not Quite the Otaku Paradise I Expected
On my last trip to the Nippori area, I knew I wanted to explore both the fabric stores and a place called the ‘Yanaka Cat Town’. Unfortunately, my hands were so filled with fabrics, I ended up just lugging them back to the hotel gave the cats a miss all together. So, now that I’m […]… Continue reading Blooming Flowers & Cats in Yanaka! — Merry Adventures
