Rising Sun I

// main //

Hey guys!! Im back with my Japan Travelogue...after 1 year :x
But anyways, here's how the first day in Takayama went:)
Our flight reached at about 8am local time and aft all the immigration procedures we went to a cozy teahouse for lunch, hotpot style:) It was super healthy (other than the tempura haha)!

Our first stop was to a Food Replica House, where we had the chance to see how those pretty food replicas they display at restaurants were made:) But on the way there we saw this SUPER PRETTY creek, it was so picturesque!! Really like it was taken out of a portrait, just prettier :')
& here are some snaps from the food replica house!

We got to make a small (fake) fruit tart for ourselves too!

& the view at the creek was so gorgeous we HAD to go back and snap photos! These are some of my fav pics from the trip :)


Trench Coat- H&M
Furry Knit Top- Runwaybandits
Yellow Skirt- Missypixie
Boots- Taiwan

One of my fav things about Japan has got to be its FOOD! Not just restaurant food/street food, i loveeee these packaged biscuits, snacks etc! Its all really yummy, i must have eaten boxes and boxes of these goodies throughout the trip hehe.

& not to mention, it was minus 3/4 degrees everyday and our fav/must do thing on the list daily is to eat a soft serve ice cream haha! The locals must be like why are these people so weird?! 
PS/ their milk flavour soft serve really is da bomb!!

Stopped by another little village/town for some photo taking. I love these wooden houses, so cozy really:)

took one with this cute banzai doll! 
Apparently its a good luck charm that represents victory ;)

Tucked into one of the little corners of the street was this inconspicuous sushi shop, that we wouldn't have known about if our tour guide didn't highly recommend it to us! It served the BEST beef sushi i've ever tasted. No joke it was super duper good, i mean coming from someone who (hates) beef, it must have been really good hahahaha

Bought some of these as well! Carb fix right before dinner haha, we're such fatties :x

Dinner!! Absolutely sumptuous!

Yay to a happy family dinner photo:)

& this looks super candid but no okay fatty was posing for me!! (fake) underage drinking hahaha

Green tea pudding for dessert! ;)
Being all silly outside after dinner hehe
My family likes to do the titanic pose wherever we go LOL, esp on holidays! I bet i can compile a montage of our titanic poses in diff countries alr hahaha
Thats all for the first day! Simple but i loved it.
It was relaxing and this part of Japan was so tranquil, a good escape from city life.

Till the next;
