Shigeru Mizuki's Pocket Visual Guide to Youkai Review

Had a flip through the Pocket Visual Guide to Yokai I bought while in Japan. Really nice little guide to 333 different demons and spirits you find in Japanese folklore. Apparently this is the 15th print since 2018. Only came across it in the pop-up shop, not the tea house. First section was dedicated to all the popular Yokai you'll find in...


Steins;gate Makise Kurisu Reading Steiner 1/7 Scale Figure Review

Big fan of Steins;gate so I really wanted this 1/7 scale figure when I saw on on the Japanese hobby sites. This Good Smile Steins;gate Makise Kurisu Reading Steiner figure was released October 2023 but as with most scale figures, it was already sold out. There wasn't even any scalping which is probably good news because maybe only the...


Hotel Crown Hills Ueno Premier Review

Formerly known as "Lifetree Ueno", the hotel is easy to spot from Ueno Station as reviews say. You can see the L-shaped outline of the tall building from a distance made of offices on the lower floors while the upper 20+ floors are the hotel rooms. Following Google Maps it's around 10 minutes walk from the train station where youll...


Japan Trip 2023 - Return to UK

Not much today going on today. Went out to get Keisei Skyline tickets then walked around Ueno Park while I waited for my penpal who decided to finally message back and meet up for the first time before I left Japan. Been here for almost 2 weeks but never been inside the park nearby, haha. Park was huge and had these illustrated lanterns...


Japan Trip 2023 - Day 10, Laundry & Kitaro Tea House Re-visit

Been wondering why the partitions on apartment balconies can be removed and I think I know why; access to fire emergency stairs along the side. If you ever wondered how dirty cash can be check out the white tissue I wrapped my coins because I had too much and wanted to separate some. Not pretty... Morning was laundry time for mesince...


Japan Trip 2023 - Day 9, Suzume no Tojimari Locations

Another clear day. Weather's been mostly great this trip just like last time. Only a day of rain so far. I decided to go out and grab the rare Figma Pokemon Red figure for my friend in the morning because one I spotted in Lashinban, Culture Zone was already gone despite the £200 price tag. Might be the last chance to grab the second one I...


Japan Trip 2023 - Day 6, Enoshima Day Trip, Iwaya Caves

Don't know if it's a trend but so many families out in the hotel dining area this morning and it's a Saturday. Usually it's very quiet at this hour. Ended up locking myself out because I forgot to my key card so had to go to reception and it was peak checkout time too... Originally I was going to take the earliest local train to avoid the...
