Osaka, Tokyo, and Hakodate

While in Kyoto, I had a three hour trip to Osaka, where I happened to meet some bgirls practicing at OCAT station! We had takoyaki and went to DuckTail before finally leaving for Tokyo. There, I visited the Studio Ghibli Museum, and had the most delicious shabu shabu and sukiyaki. I was there for the day before heading on to Sendai for an evening, which was an adventure as well! I arrived and actually hadn’t booked anything in advance, and I hoped there would be something nearby.


As part of my trip to Calgary, I had the opportunity to visit the (in)famously beautiful and expensive Canadian city known as Vancouver. Luckily for me, I had some very good friends who housed me for most of my stay.
