Lately I’m posting everyday about small gyaru news like gyaru x hello kitty collaborations, Spring hair inspiration from an Osaka salon, and Vanquish shop staff coordinates.
This post deserves a bit of backstory. During my trip last November I decided to take a day trip to Nagano. One of the things I wanted to do was go see the snow monkeys.
I was rushing to make the tour bus that goes there so once I got on the bus I read the instructions about the monkey park. It was an hour drive to get there and then an 1 hour and a half hike to see the monkeys. Multiplying that by two in my head, I realized it would take 6 hours, it was already 2:30. I couldn’t possibly make it to dinner with Mirukut in Sendai!
However I was already on the bus! Full on panic mode ensued!
The bus driver when hearing my situation let me out in the middle of nowhere at a bus stop and told me the buses wouldn’t come until later that day so it was best to walk to a train station. Which he said was generally over there in a small neighborhood. With those simple directions I got out of the bus on the highway and I was alone on the side of the road on the outskirts of Nagano.
If you don’t feel like reading a story, just enjoy the pictures. But if not, scroll for descriptions.
Getting lost is good sometimes. You get to discover new places.
I actually ended up in Obuse 小布施 which reading about it now seems like a cool place, little did I know then :worries:
