Many thanks to Baroque Japan Limited for letting us hang out in your booth, and to my best friend Marie for dancing like … Continue Reading

Zushi Fes ’15

Zushi Fes is a music festival held every summer at Zushi beach, and this year I decided to check it out with my friend Mika. From Kamakura station, we took a free shuttle to the venue. If Zushi was closer to Tokyo, I would probably live here – there are so many similarities to southern … Continue Reading

Tanabata Festival 七夕祭り

A Japanese summer is not complete without a summer festival, also known as “matsuri” in Japanese. My mother and grandparents used to take my brother and I to the matsuri every summer we visited Japan. The endless street food vendors, toys, games and the bon-odori and taiko performances have always fascinated me as a child, … Continue Reading

Posting these photos from Electrox Japan 2015, like, 2 days late but… I had to post them. This is a New Year’s EDM festival held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture.

Even though it fell on the 26th, the Tanabata Matsuri (festival) in Ogawamachi, Saitama was one of … Continue Reading

Stripes & denim at the Sanja Matsuri in Asakusa

It’s matsuri (festival) season again, and I was so excited to go to the Sanja Matsuri in Asakusa for the 2nd year in a row with my friend Alisa. The weather was perfect, a great start to the weekend. We stuffed ourselves with too much food, but somehow still managed to find room in our … Continue Reading

Icona Pop in Tokyo

Yep, just saw them live tonight at the Womb Shibuya and I’m still trying to relive it. Icona Pop is a unit that you definitely need to see live. Their vocal abilities, stage presence, energy – it’s all there and my friends and I enjoyed every minute of their performance. Caroline seemed more the playful … Continue Reading

A taste of Jamaica

    I didn’t think I’d go to two festivals this weekend, but I’m so glad I did! My good friend Marie told me about this Jamaican Festival at Yoyogi Park and I immediately told her I wanted to go. Apparently there are several international festivals at Yoyogi Park, and last week was the Thai … Continue Reading
