Aigoo Adventures: Osaka 2017

Aigoo Adventures

I am here to write about my Osaka trip! I have to say that this trip was way better than my Fukuoka trip. Osaka made me happy, and the sights I saw here were amazing. I did visit Osaka in 2015, but I didn’t really get to see much of it then since I was mostly at Universal Studios and Kyoto. But this time, I made the most of my short stay to see and do as much as possible! Hope you guys enjoy my adventure in Osaka!

Quite a few things have happened to me recently. I returned from my Busan trip, but I wanted to write about my other happenings before I share all the full details of my trip. Work has kept me busy for the most part, but I still have found time to try and do new things. Also, an awesome blogger gifted me a special pillow. So read all about it :)

Aigoo Adventures: Kyushu 2017

Aigoo Adventures

Last month, over Memorial Day weekend, I travelled back to Japan to visit Fukuoka and Karatsu! I chose to visit there mostly because I wanted to see Karatsu Castle, which was featured in Yuri!!! On Ice as Hasetsu Castle. With Karatsu being an hour away from Fukuoka by train, I decided that it made sense to fly into Fukuoka and find accommodation, and then just do a quick day trip to Karatsu and still have a bit of time to check out Fukuoka. Plus, the plane ticket was so cheap ($157 roundtrip with Jeju Air!), and so off I went on a short weekend trip to Kyushu, the southernmost island of mainland Japan. Enjoy this post about my trip, and keep an eye out for my next travel post in July, for I am making my way to Busan!

Symphonic Selections: Piano de Bossa ~ Fly Me to the Moon

Symphonic Selections

Three more days until my trip! I am so excited for it, and thus my excitement affected my choice for this month’s Symphonic Selections. A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a gospel version of “Zankoku na Tenshi no Thesis”, the opening song for Neon Genesis Evangelion, a popular anime from the 1990s. This made me think of its ending song, “Fly Me to the Moon”. I will be flying soon, albeit not to the Moon, and I kept singing this song whenever I had a free moment. Therefore, I went on a hunt for an instrumental version of this song.
