Before flying back to Manila, we went to Sakae again. Japan travel tip: Do not make Mondays your museum days because everything will be closed. Originally planned to go to some museums, but sadly overlooked our free day. Anyhow, we just took it as a sign for much-needed rest and relaxation, and continued to go about our favorite activity – shopping.
Went straight to LOFT, your one stop shop for anything and everything.
I found the eyelash glue I swear by. Limited edition Hello Kitty packaging!
There was also a MERCURYDUO design! Ended up getting this one! Making this decision made me feel so mature, lol
TAKE HOME ALL THE EYEBROW PRODUCTS. The Japanese do it best! They have different colors of pencils and mascaras depending on your hair color. No need to bleach your eyebrows anymore!
Japanese magazines. I recently graduated from Vivi! I’m more into Sweet magazine nowadays!
Loft’s Star Wars stall.
They also had a Sailor Moon stall! The costumes are a little on the pricy side because they’re official merchandise.
I actually found a costume set in Animate that cost about 24,000 yen, which is kind of crazy.
Rainbow Pocky. IT EXISTS. I’ll have the strawberry please!
Missing coat weather!
Looking forward to my trip this December! I might go to Europe this time. :D
Lots and lots of layers for Japanese fashion. This is how Japanese menswear does it.
OOTD: Apart by Lowrys top, Stylenanda sweater, EMODA skirt, one way boots. This coat has no brand – I just found it at a random store in Korea!
The Sunshine Sakae ferris wheel. Not much to see inside the building, but…
…there’s a huge Don Quixote right across!
Christmas lights still up even after Christmas. So pretty.
Last supper in Nagoya – high quality beef! I can’t remember the name of the restaurant we went to, but all Japanese specialty restaurants always have high quality beef anyway!
Still dreaming of going to Kobe just to eat Kobe beef everyday, lol.
Nagoya’s night lights.
I’ll miss this place a lot! Not sure if I’ll be going back to Nagoya (over options like Tokyo or Osaka) any time soon, but it was definitely a refreshing experience in this quaint, not-so-little (as it’s Japan’s 4th most populated) city.
‘Til next time!
