Japan Recap: Day 19 & 20

This is the last of my quick recaps from my Japan holiday to collect all the links to my highlight lists and full daily photos. You can view them all here.

DAY 19

I messed up my planning and wasted a lot of the day, but still had fun in Ueno spending my ¥100 coin stash on gashapon and reading in the park (with a panda cookie).

DAY 20

My last day was spent picking up some final gifts and souvenirs and wandering around the gardens near Sensoji. I finished up with a last curry and peek at the Sky Tree and then home to pack.


That’s the end of my recap posts – hope you enjoyed looking back! I’ve got a huge list of things I want to write about from my trip. Some I will share here, some will be on Super Cute Kawaii and others will be for my next book. If you have any requests, just ask!
