Seasons of Japan – April 2017 | nihonchique

April started off with a bang with the first leg of NEWS’s NEVERLAND tour in Sapporo! I was so excited to go to Sapporo again after 2 years. My friend and I ate all the food there and even went to an observatory that is considered one of the best night views in Japan! (Except I went during the day… but I digress.)

Next came Cherry Blossom season with some amazing views. Spring is one of my favorite seasons in Japan, and I was so happy to experience the Cherry Blossoms in a few different places (Including my first time to see them in Shiga!)with some special people.

At the end of the month was Golden Week, and I decided to make a trip home to America and experience wine country in California for the first time before heading home to Florida for about a week. Emeritus Vineyards was by far my favorite visit and we had a very nice tour complete with a personal talk with the owner himself! Their wines are amazing and the company was awesome!

Photo Diary – October 2016 | nihonchique

The month of October went from warm days of Summer to cool days of Autumn in a matter of weeks. My boyfriend also came to visit from England and we spent a few days together, including going to the Rink Outlets near the Kansai International Airport for some shopping.

October includes Halloween, but I am not really one for dressing up. I love the Fall drinks and decorations that come out at this time of year though!

I also went on a location shoot for work to cover something in Hirakata city, where I studied abroad at Kansai Gaidai back in 2011. It was fun to travel back to that area and experience suburban Osaka for a day.
