Part of the planning included dragging out all the pamphlets, maps and other things from four years ago to see what was still useful. I also found all the Keroro charms I had collected while there! Still unopened in their cute packaging. Hrm. Any good ideas on a nice way to display charms/netsuke?
|These are from Tokyo - Tokyo Tower, Asakusa, and maid-Kero from Akiba!|
|Takoyaki and whale shark Kero from Osaka, Momotaro-kero from Okayama|
|Dim Sum Kero from Yokohama, and Kyushu and Okinawa Keros|
|Actually, Kyushu Kero is pretty random looking >.>"|
Being that I can't really remember buying each of these - what sort of shops they were in, what other options there were, what we were doing that day - makes me kinda sad that I didn't blog our trip more in-depth. My goal is to really write it up this time around. I'd say that it'll be boring for you and a good memory-log for me, but really - is anything in Japan boring? Pfft.
|Himeji Kero, Miyajima Kero, and Hakone Kero|
|Even found a clear file that shows all the different keros per region!|
|Here's the general area we'll be visiting this time.|
