Amazing Chai Tea and Hamburgers In Kanagawa

On the heels of eating Singapore food for the first time with a friend, I went with another friend “Queen M” to one of the areas I used to live around in Kanagawa.  I used to live there, but I had no idea on all the great food places I was missing out on.

Queen M showed me around to this amazing hole-in-the-wall burger place and wow, they knew how to make burgers right.  Yum!

Letting Go

When it comes to certain people, I have trouble letting go.  My mother still can’t let go of her anger towards people who betrayed her. She still fumes about things, and will bore you to death with the story of “that person who ten years ago stabbed me in the back”.

Cherry Blossoms In Hokkaido 2017

The cherry blossom may have run their course in Tokyo, but they were in full bloom on day 3 of our trip in Hokkaido.  We went to Goryokaku, a place I’ve always wanted to visit. It’s the star-shaped park you may have seen pictures of in magazines. There is a ton of history in this location where a very famous battle took place a long time ago.

In fact, according to my husband, a lot of the movie The Last Samurai draws its inspiration from what transpired here.

Plus it looks amazing in full bloom.

The cherry blossom trees that grow here are not like the ones you find in Tokyo, their petals are whiter, fluffier, and fall off faster.
