I just realized I haven't finished at all telling you about my trip to Japan!
I finally got to visit my friend yesterday and get all the pictures from various trips, and browsing among those we took in Japan, I realized I had so many pictures and places I didn't talk about!
This day we headed to the Imperial Palace, which was closed, since it's open only twice a year, but I really wanted to go there still. It was a very nice thing that we did, because we could see the most beautiful cherry blossoms of all this trip. The atmospheer was so peaceful, the sky grayish and these flowers so delicate yet strong, overwhelming with their beauty. I cannot forget how much I felt at peace this morning, just admiring these little flowers.
We then decided to go to Shinjuku, where we had lunch at an italian restaurant. It was delicious! Now that I think about it, we really weren't that lucky with the weather during that trip, we had lots of rain and gloomy days... Even in Shinjuku we had rain this afternoon. If you want to eat korean Shinjuku is definitely the place to go, there are tons of korean restaurants, that we unfortunately didn't have a chance to try!
And because we're always late, we didn't make it in time to the Tokyo Tower, so couldn't reach the top. That's one thing we didn't do during this trip, and one thing we'll definitely do once we're back in Tokyo.
We wanted to make that happen again in April this year, but finally won't be possible to go back to Japan this year, or maybe in October. Looking back at these pictures make quite sad and nostalgic I must say, for I miss Japan everyday and can't wait to live there. The road to that is quite long and difficult, sometimes really depressing but when I look at these pictures or remember how it felt walking under these cherry blossoms trees, or playing funny games in Shinjuku waiting for the rain to stop, I suddenly feel this strengh in my heart, and know that I'll find the motivation, the will and the courage, to get there and fulfil my dream, no matter what. No matter how hard I must work or study, or how long I'll have to do it.
Wait for me Japan!
