Kamakura is famous for its surfers and the Big Buddha, but we got to discover other sides too: This temple was close to the beach, and especially beautiful, with palm trees surrounding the area, and the muffled chant of monks filling the complete silence of the temple grounds. Probably one of the most peaceful temples I have visited so far, since there were practically no tourists there. Beach air is famous for making anyone hungry, we found a little cafe that was selling juices and sandwiches. It was really yummy! #merveilletravel #kamakura #goldenweek #gw ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Kamakura

During the tea ceremony in Kyoto, we were also given different types of wagashi - traditional, japanese sweets - which are usually eaten with green tea/matcha as we did here after preparing ours. In general, after this incredibly beautiful experience, I wont be able to drink any cheap matcha anymore, and I dont even wanna mention matcha desserts. This was seriously the real taste of Matcha and if you ever have the opportunity to try it, do not hesitate. The ceremony cost around 2000 yen (~18โ‚ฌ) and the matcha and wagashi were included in the price, as well as the opportunity to try and make your own matcha ๐Ÿถ #merveilletravel #kyoto #teaceremony #matcha #teaceremonykyoto #kiyomizudera #traditionaljapan #matchateaceremony ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Tea Ceremony Nagomi

On our first day in Kyoto, we spontaneously decided to do a tea ceremony lesson. We found a last-minute class in the street that leads up to Kiyomizu Dera at a place called Tea Ceremony Nagomi. The prices were good and our instructor was very nice and patient with us. We were allowed to choose one cup from the shelve to practice making matcha. I chose the one that looked like the Chureito Pagoda with sakura. Watching our instructor whip the Matcha with the hot water was mesmerizing. I never knew how fast a wrist could spin before I saw this. When we were allowed to try preparing our matcha we realized how long you must exercise until perfecting that quick wrist movement. But with a lot of help from our instructor, we managed to have a perfect cup of matcha. More about the tea ceremony in the upcoming posts... Stay tuned! #merveilletravel #kyoto #teaceremony #matcha #teaceremonykyoto #kiyomizudera #traditionaljapan #matchateaceremony ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Kyoto, Japan

It's been exactly 1 month now since @dilayskzl and @aycairem came to visit me in Tokyo ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Second video from our first day in Shibuya is up already which you can check out above โ˜ Spoiler Alert: It's funny ๐Ÿ˜‚ This photo was taken on our second day, in front of the sake barrels before entering Meiji Jingu. I dont know if my brain is tricking me but I feel like they keep switching the barrels time to time. Last time I came here in January I dont remember seeing the blue barrel because if I did, I'm sure I would have taken loads of pictures. #merveilletravel #meijijingu #meijishrine #sakebarrels ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at ๆ˜Žๆฒป็ฅžๅฎฎ (Meiji Jingu)

As a child, collecting shells by the beach was my most favourite and anticipated activity in summer. That's why they will always remind me of my childhood ๐Ÿš Who else spent half their childhood looking for shells in the sand? And who is still doing that today? #merveilletravel #kamakura #beach #shells #gw #goldenweek ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Kamakura

Calm and wild at the same time ๐ŸŒŠ I love the ocean a lot! It is my favouritr ecosystem and I am really happy that Tokyo is so close to the sea. Swimming is a bit dangerous in these waters, and the beach itself doesnt look very nice either. Still, the waves didn't cease to hypnotize me at all... Next on my Tokyo beaches list is Zushi ๐Ÿ˜Š #merveilletravel #kamakura #goldenweek #gw ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Kamakura

For our golden week holiday last week friday we spontaneously decided to visit Kamakura which is actually really close to Tokyo and has a beach. First we wanted to visit Daibutsu - the Big Buddha - before getting too sandy. This one actually looks really similar to the one in Hong Kong at Lantau Island with few differences including the pose of the fingers for example. I would like to know more about those different hand poses so if you know anything about it let me know please ๐Ÿ˜Š #merveilletravel #kamakura #daibutsu #goldenweek #gw ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at ้ŽŒๅ€‰ๅคงไปๆฎฟ้ซ˜ๅพณ้™ข (Kamakura Daibutsu)

Summer is around the corner and I have already tried 2 interesting flavours. 1.: The purple wisteria-flavoured ice cream at the Ashikaga Flower Park last week. It was an interesting flavour, not as soapy as I thought. 2.: Ramune flavoured ice-cream at the Hitachi Seaside Park 2 days ago. The ice cream fit perfectly to the baby-blue Nemophilia flowers in the background. I think Ramune ice cream is gonna be my new go-to flavour for summer. It's refreshing and sweet at the same time. If you dont know what Ramune is: it's Soda that - as far as I know- only exists in Japan. It tastes like a bubble gum dissolved in sprite ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Soooo yummy! Definitely a must-try if you come visit Japan! ๐Ÿ˜Š #merveilletravel #hitachiseasidepark #ashikagaflowerpark #wisteria #Nemophilia #ibaraki #wisteriaicecream #ramuneicecream #ramune #icecream ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme at Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan.

Yesterday we went to Hitachi Seaside Park, one of the places in Japan I really wanted to visit. The park has the blue Nemophilia flowers in spring and the red Kochia bushes in autumn which I am planning to visit as well ๐Ÿ™ #merveilletravel #hitachiseasidepark #Nemophilia #ibaraki #whpcolorpop ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme at Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan.

This is the last post from Sanrio Puroland I swear! One of my Highlights of the day was actually this dinner. A kitty Burger made of rice flour, fries amd Karaage (fried chicken) a Kiki and Lala star, cinnamoroll pudding and Gudetama Dango ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Gudetama is my absolute favourite Sanrio Character so I had to have these mochiballs. Also, the box came with the dinner for free. I could take it home. Such a bargain! #merveilletravel #sanriopuroland #hellokitty #sanrio #kikiandlala #gudetama #whpcolorpop #cinnamoroll #sanriofood #kittyburger #gudetamadango #kawaiifood #goldenweek ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme at Sanrio Puroland

This is how much I love tea ๐Ÿถ On Thursday, Golden week has officially started (for me at least...) and due to the bad weather that day, we started our holidays by going to Sanrio Puroland, an indoor amusement park dedicated to all the Sanrio Characters (hello kitty, gudetama, cinnamoroll, pom pom purin, my melody, ...) This place is designated more towards little kids but since we will be grown-ups in the year of 583929 we could still enjoy all the colourful fun. On this picture you can see my attitude towards getting your pictures taken: Always try to have fun! The family who was taking our picture was loudly laughing at our picture (or rather to my crazy poses). So I am happy that I could at least make strangers happy with this ๐Ÿ˜‚ #merveilletravel #sanriopuroland #hellokitty #sanrio #kikiandlala #pompompurin #gudetama #whpcolorpop #goldenweek ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Sanrio Puroland

There were 3 different kinds of wisteria in the ashikaga flower park: Purple, white and yellow. The purple ones were my favourite since purple is also one of my favourite colours ๐Ÿ’œ Which one do you prefer? #merveilletravel #ashikagaflowerpark #ashikaga #wisteria #purplewisteria #whpcolorpop ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities

The wisteria flowers are already beautiful by themselves but their trees are at least as magical as the flowers. Their trunks looks just like straight out of a fantasy movie and their branches spread above our heads as though they could reach into the sky... #merveilletravel #ashikagaflowerpark #ashikaga #wisteria #purplewisteria #whpcolorpop ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at ใ‚ใ—ใ‹ใŒใƒ•ใƒฉใƒฏใƒผใƒ‘ใƒผใ‚ฏ/Ashikaga Flower Park

On Sunday, we went to the Ashikaga Flower Park, a Wisteria Park around 2 hours outside of Tokyo (it took is 4 hours though...). Of course, I found out about this place on instagram and immediately fell in love with it. Purple is one of my favourite colours and wisteria is one of the best smelling flowers there is (but favourite flowers are daisy and osmanthus) What is your favourite flower? And where do you guys usually get your travel inspiration from? #merveilletravel #ashikagaflowerpark #ashikaga #wisteria #purplewisteria ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at ใ‚ใ—ใ‹ใŒใƒ•ใƒฉใƒฏใƒผใƒ‘ใƒผใ‚ฏ/Ashikaga Flower Park

I totally fell in love with the street that leads to Kiyomizu Dera (which we unfortunately didn't manage to see). In this street you can find many shops and stands that sell souvenirs and delicious street food. And of course, you can find the famous Tatami-style Starbucks in this street (you can see it in the photo). It was the most atmospheric Starbucks I have been to. There is not a lot of light and the seating areas are divided into seperate rooms. If I am not mistaken, there were 4 Tatami style rooms where you have to take off your shoes before entering. And then there were 2 non-tatami rooms with small wooden stools and tables. We were lucky enough to quickly find seats in one of the Tatami rooms. #merveilletravel #starbuckskyoto #tatami #tatamistarbucks #kiyomizudera ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities at Starbuck Coffee Kyoto Ninenzaka Yazaka Chaya

One of the things that was missing in my instafeed was a picture of me in the middle of the Shibuya Crossing ๐Ÿ‘ฏ I know people get annoyed by all those tourists trying to get a fun snap in the middle of the crossing while others are hurrying to and from the train station. Even I get annoyed sometimes, but mostly, of all the selfie-stick users ๐Ÿ˜ค It is just way more fun to watch the madness from the Starbucks above the crossing, which is right behind me inside the Tsutaya building. #merveilletravel #shibuya #shibuyacrossing #tsutaya #starbuckstsutaya #ootd #whatiwore #kimonojacket ____________________________________ #lifeinjapan #ilovejapan #igjapan #explorejapan #japanstyle #traveljapan #japanfocus #instajapan #unknownjapan #tasteintravel #dametraveller #fashioninspo #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #wearetravelgirls #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #postcardplaces #theprettycities #tokyo #tokyocameraclub at Shibuya Crossing ๆธ‹่ฐท้ง…ๅ‰ใ‚นใ‚ฏใƒฉใƒณใƒ–ใƒซไบคๅทฎ็‚น
