Daiso hual!! This is part of their newest collection in June and I rush down to get it after seeing some post on instagram. The one thing I notice is that these cute collections always sell put really fast here!!! When I got down to the shop, there was only a couple left. Was glad I was able to et some stuff this time! 😊😊
More sushi! 😋
Part of the reason why I went to the Kyōto-Osaka region was so I could avoid Typhoon Jebi - the strongest typhoon to hit the island country since ‘93. That didn’t really work out so well as it changed course and made landfall in Western Japan instead. With local transit coming to a halt, and many businesses and tourist attractions closing early, I decided to go to the onsen. Thankfully, Sagano Onsen was still open by the time I arrived. There isn’t a lot of volcanic activity in the Kyōto area so there are very few onsens here. Even the one I went to isn’t technically natural; they had to drill 1200m into a well to extract the water. But this was the perfect way to spend the day. I even took a dip in the outdoor bath for a bit before the wind got too strong 😅 However, my biggest takeaway from that day was making some new friends. Particularly @jhelotera, who helped me out with the language barrier and recommended some places to check out in the area.
We had dinner at a nearby conveyor belt sushi restaurant. For ¥100 a plate, the food was pretty decent. You mix your own tea (there’s a hot water dispenser and matcha powder? at the table), and you drop your plates into a slot, which gets tallied up automatically. The food itself wasn’t much special but bonding over the meal was. This is why I love traveling. You get to meet people from all over the world and hear about their experiences. @jhelotera sorry for not keeping in touch! Also, your stories make me want to drop everything and travel again. If only I had the money 😅
After parting ways, I swung by a nearby supermarket and got some watermelon. I barely had any all summer so believe me, I had a huge craving.
