Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium

img_7628

On my last day of winter vacation and after barely leaving my apartment for three days, I decided to take a visit to the Nagoya Aquarium and make the most of my final day of freedom. Nagoya and Aichi in general has some pretty fun and interesting places, and the¬†aquarium happens to be my favourite because (at risk of sounding like a certain character from Ensemble Stars), I like fish. Also, it’s a great place to go in the winter when it’s cold because the majority of it is inside.

I was there from the opening at 9.30 until around 2.45. I honestly could have stayed longer and taken another look around, but I was hungry and it was so busy that the food court was full, so I left to go and get lunch. In the time I was there though I managed to see most things including catching a few of the days events. I highly recommend this place as a day out if you come to Nagoya.

Touken Ranbu 2.5d Cafe Osaka

On December 27th me and Tina took a day trip to Osaka to go to the 2.5d Cafe there.

The interior of the cafe was basically the same as the one in Tokyo (I’m certain they just cleared out all of the decor and equipment from the one there and shipped it all to Osaka) except that thankfully it was all on one floor and therefore did not have those horrible wooden slippery steps. The picture at the top of this post is Mikazuki and Kogitsunemaru’s outfits that were on display in the cafe. We were lucky enough to be first to enter the room, so we were able to claim the table right in front of them.

Tsukiuta x Animate Cafe

Yesterday, me and Tina went along to the Tsukiuta x Animate Cafe collab in Nagoya. Tsukiuta isn’t one of my big fandoms, but I enjoyed the anime and the characters and the goods and visuals are really cute, so I was quite happy to go along and try the cafe, especially with company. Animate cafe collaborations aren’t the place to go if you want a cheap meal (we spent just over 2000 each for a meal and drink) but it’s a lot of fun. This was my second time going to an Animate Cafe, and I definitely plan on going to more in the future!

Lucky Se-… Josie

I should have posted this a while ago but I was too busy this week to finish writing it. I really want to write a post about the last show of Seigaku vs Hyotei and about 8th Generation’s graduation, but I’ll get to that after this is posted.

On Saturday 24th and Sunday 24th September, I spent the weekend in Tokyo, my second trip that month. I had originally planned on just going on the 25th as I had a ticket for Samurai Mode‘s afternoon show, but the lure of Tenimyu’s final weekend led me to head there a day earlier in hope of seeing it one last time, as well as seeing Samurai Mode one more time as well. I had to make a post about this weekend because it turned out to be one of the luckiest I’ve had for a while.

My first luck of the day came when we spent a couple of hours at karaoke in the morning. Having already collected all of the Tenimyu coasters I had wanted, I decided instead to try their new Ensemble Stars drinks collab, which would give me free random can badges. The drinks I tried were for Nito Nazuna and Shino Hajime. The drinks were a little too sweet for that early in the morning, but good all the same, and here they are pictured with the badges I pulled:

Karaoke and fruit tarts

On July 14th, I finally got my birthday trip. Despite it being 10 days after my birthday, I still called it my birthday trip because I didn’t do anything special for my actual birthday, and the money I took with me on this trip to pay for everything was given to me as a birthday gift. I have a whole bunch of reports to write about the things I went to see during the four days I was there, but let’s start with some fun things I did on Thursday.

To begin the morning (after spending some time hibernating in my usual seat at the McDonalds in Ikebukuro) I was able to invade Steve’s reserved room at karaoke! Thank you! Karatetsu currently have a collab room for Tenimyu’s Seigaku vs Hyotei, as well as collab drinks with free random coasters. As with everything else during this trip, it was perfectly timed and I was really happy that we were able to go. I realised afterwards I missed a few pictures when I was taking my photos, but here are the ones I got. Included is my selfie with Ryoma (that I took after being on a night bus for 6 hours hence why I look half-dead).
