Class Osu Trip

This was from a monthish ago...

I have, and most of the other students have already explored Osu quite a bit before this.  Kind of short, but I still wanted to post it.

This is what it looks like inside

Almost forgot to add this picture <3 Lolitas doing purikura. One of the best things about Japan is that you see lolitas everywhere, even when not in the big cities =] I love this picture so much! XD

Nagoya Bluebonnet Wildflower Garden

This post is going to be extremely photo-heavy because PRETTY!!! I went here for a photo shoot last weekend, so I was the main focus in front of the camera, but with the extra time in between, I took a lot of pictures! I plan to go again to appreciate the prettiness more though.

 The only picture that I edited was the one with the rainbow. The rainbow was already there, but I edited the saturation a bit to make it show up more =]

Restaurant in the garden

The food wasn't that great for how much it cost...


The ones of me were taken by Hiro with my camera

Love this one!

We took a bus there, and a boat ride to get back to Nagoya Port (you can get to the flower garden either by boat or bus)

I Pet a Wolf on the Beach In Japan! Adventures at Shinmaiko Beach

Haha, I couldn't not call the blog post that XD How many people can say that? Even just one of those things alone is awesome!  This was the beach episode of our anime.  Anyway, I have about 4 blog posts just from this weekend alone, and still like 5 or more from a while ago, but I figure it doesn't really matter when I post them or what order, as long as I try to post at least 1 a week or every 2 weeks. This weekend has definitely been the most fun and tiring in a while! I was busy doing fun things nonstop. I hope the rest of my weekends can be filled with things since my time here is short! YOJO!! (You're Only in Japan Once)!! Don't hate me, I had to XD

Shinmaiko Beach is about 30 minutes from Nagoya station on the Meitetsu, and about 500 yen ($5) each way.  I want to go back a few more times!  It was such an amazing day.

Since you're all probably wondering, I guess I should start with the wolf. His name is Hannibal Lector, and apparently the guy got him in Texas. He was so beautiful!! I'm so used to Japanese people having tiny little cute doggies, then there's this big beautiful beast!

 And here's the beach!

From the bridge

The water was ridiculously freezing, like numb your whole body till it hurts cold. I hope it warms up!

On the side nearest the station, there were so many perfect seashells!

And there was the most perfect sunset

 Cute turtle statue that we all had to pose with...

 Then we had a selfie/photo shoot party in a little square patch of wildflowers by the ocean.  This is what it looked like from a distance...

And here's closer. Lots of poppies and cornflowers

Possibly the only good selfies I got XD

Belinda's parasol

Teehee, selfie-taking XD

After our beach adventures, we went to Nagoya station to get some tonkatsu at a really yummy place.

We were on the 13th floor, so we had a really pretty view
