Kyudaisai sounded fun, but I really really wanted to meet my friends. And with a four day weekend, this was way too good a chance to pass up. So, off to Tokyo I flew.
And when I got to Tokyo, I was reminded of how inconvenient Narita is. It takes me less than half an hour to get to Fukuoka airport from my home, but about two hours and 3000 yen to get to Kichijyouji. I arrived there about midnight and with barely any power in my handphone (I had this fear that the phone would die on me and I'd become uncontactable).
But, it was all worth it. I got to (activities not listed in chronological order) see my Kendo club:
Meet my cousin and have lunch with her:
|According to Nic, these pictures made her hungry. Even though|
she had her dinner just before looking at them.
|So gaze upon the deliciousness that is Cheese Nan!|
|The kids are adorable!|
|What an interesting book you have there Simone(;|
And even Komabasai:
|So. Many. People.|
|Road to Tobitakyu. Also found here|
|Mitaka Dorm. I quite like how this photo has|
warm and cool colours. You can also see it here
And a bonus photo! Here's one that I took with my iPad when I came back to Muromi:
|It was actually even cooler in person. And yes, you can|
also find it here
My mom and my little brother are also in arriving in Fukuoka for one month, so let's see how I'll juggle schoolwork and more travelling for the month!
EDIT: When I was in Gaidai, Tani-sensei asked me to make a video introducing Kyudai. So here it is! (Video is in Japanese)
