Hello, Jackie here,
I’m back from my vacation in Japan and it was such a lovely week eating all the food and shopping. I never buy clothes when abroad so mostly it was food shopping, stationary shopping, and basically staring at all the cuteness and wanting everything. Seriously when I’m abroad like my budgeting goes out the window because we don’t have all that cute stuff in the US so I keep telling myself you won’t be back for another 3 or 4 years so buy as much as you can now so you don’t regret not buying it, which unfortunately doesn’t help my wallet. But weather wise it only snowed in Hokkaido, which was to be expected, but otherwise it was pretty good weather for the rest of the trip until the morning we woke up to catch our flight back to the US it was snowing and raining in Tokyo. It’s funny because I got sick of all the whiteness in a couple of days I was in Hokkaido, but now that I’m home and everyone else is talking about snow in the east coast I’m like I wanna see snow too.

Normally I step into every bookstore within a 0.5 mile radius when I’m on vacation, but for this trip almost all books were in Japanese and I learned my lesson a few years back that buying Japanese books is moot point especially when my Japanese isn’t all that advanced. So all my book buying went to buying stationary things. Anyways, it was interesting to see that the majority of the Japanese people still read physical books instead of using ereaders like we do in the US.
