Um...taking out yaoi for a moment...MY TRIP TO JAPAN!
|Here are a few pictures of my trip to Japan!!|
Here i was writing some kanji. I think I was writing the seasons.
I hate this picture of me. I look so...blah! Anyways, I'm on the lower right hand corner, in red, with my glasses and my hair pulled back. I don't know who the two on the bottom were. I forgot, lol. But the top left is my friend (sorta) Megan, her exchange student Fuzuki, then there is my exchange student, Akiko, then...I forgot the rest! Sry bout that, lol.
Here's the welcoming ceremony when we got to Japan. They were singing, "If you're happy and you know it" in Japanese!!
Isn't this place simply beautiful? This is inside a park where we got to...
participate in a Tea Ceremoney!!!
...and Floral Arrangement. you had to clip off the stems and leaves in the water!!
Then, we set off to Mt. Fuji, which has real...
We then drove over to the tokyo Tower, and saw all the pretty sights:
and then, a few days later, we headed off to Asakusa, where we shopped all day and then had lunch at a really cool resturant!! There's tempura(which had shrimp, real fish(eyeballs included) and crab fried in flour), white rice, soy sauce, raw egg for dipping, cooked egg in a strange pattern, and a fruit (the yellow stuff) for placing on our rice if we wanted. I really dun like japanese food, but this was a good meal!
Well, as it turns out, we eventually had to go home. BUT, we had...a Farewll party! We had to do...DUN DUN DUN...the electric slide...Here I am, in my glasses and pulled back hair, bare footed, with pants that kept threating to fall off me:
After a tearfull goodbye, our bus was driving away...when *GASP* James keeps running! We turn a corner, and he keeps coming! He doesn't want to leave! Boy, did that make a lot of us start crying when we realized he had tears rolling down his face. It wasreally an emotional moment. Even I started to cry...and then I got Akiko crying...it was sooooo sad....
And so...farewell, Japan. I'll see you in a couple of years!
How was my trip to you guys in this limited amount of pictures. sorry if it takes too long to load.
