I travelled all over Japan in 2009 during Cherry Blossom season. Everywhere I went I picked up brochures, catalogues, magazines and souvenirs like; napkins, and business cards from shops and restaurants as well as pretty packaging and train/admission tickets to put in my journal when I returned home. Ha! many bags in my suitcase were filled of these things.
Hope you enjoy these pictures of pages from my journal during my time in Tokyo. Please excuse the very messy writing! Eeep!
1.Journal opening pages collage of fave Japan things. 2.Airport and rail passes - oh I miss the Suica Penguin Japan's rail mascot! 3.My little Tokyo rail map made out of washi tape. 4.Odaiba has great shopping complexes like Aqua City and Tokyo Decks, also went to the Anime festival at Tokyo Big Site. 5.I think I visited every Studio Ghibli store I could find - Moe Garden was a fave! 6.Shinjuku opened their 0I0I Marui Curren building when I was there, had a cool Blythe store in it!

Mementos from Harajuku, the Mighty Soxer smiley face is a fave. 8.Kiddyland bento's and more pictures from Harajuku. 9, 10, 11. I just HAD to go to the Studio Ghibli museum in Mitaka.
