Taking it Easy

Yesterday was so slow that I’m having a hard time remembering how it began. Well, first off, we needed to go to the bank. So we went to Shinjuku for that. We also stopped to get Shinkansen tickets for Tokyo to Kyoto. In between, we hit up a couple arcades along the way. We finally Read the Rest…

Classic Tokyo

marzgurl | Mar 31 2010 | Comments  0 

Yesterday morning started with a trek to Asakusa, a district in the North-East portion of Tokyo. We ate breakfast there, and visited Sensou-ji temple, a Buddhist shrine, and the oldest in Tokyo. It’s probably even the most famous. I had been there three or four times before, but it never gets old. Sadly, the outside Read the Rest…

Long Day

Got on the trains early yesterday morning to go to Fuji-Q Highland. It took a couple hours, but we finally got there. It’s a cute little theme park sitting directly under Mt. Fuji. We chose the sunniest day of the week to go. Fuji was quite beautiful against the sky and surrounded by the rest Read the Rest…

It all started with "Hi!"

Yesterday morning, we all woke up and began walking toward the train station. And then, the best part of the day happened. A large group of school children walked past, and when they saw we were foreign, one of them yelled, “Hi!” So, we said back, “Hi!” And then the ENTIRE group of them all Read the Rest…

Good Morning from Tokyo Again!

Yesterday morning, I bathed in the hostel’s traditional baths, and since the private bath was closed I was like, “Why not? Let’s go to the public bath.” I wouldn’t have had a problem if it was, like, a ton of other women in there, then I’d have just marched in without a problem. Unfortunately there Read the Rest…

Trains, trains, trains

A trip in a train is far more comfortable than a trip in a plane. Maybe it’s because there’s actually something to see in a train and nothing but clouds to see on a train. We woke up early from our hostel in Sapporo yesterday, packed up, met Taiki at the train station, and then Read the Rest…

I Love Sapporo!

Wow, yesterday was really busy. I think my feet still hurt from all of the walking. Luckily, most of today will be a big train ride, so I think I’ll be fine. Anyway, here’s what happened yesterday! The night before, while walking to the hostel, Jacob had soaked his shoes entirely from the snow (why Read the Rest…

To Sapporo!

I don’t know if I can call my whole trip a one-day trip or not, or if it should have been considered much longer than that. First, we drove from San Antonio to Houston, a 3 – 4 hour drive. We stayed the night at Sean’s place, and then left for the airport on the Read the Rest…

A Bit Disappointed

I don’t get it. I usually wouldn’t approach viewers like this, but I feel very strongly that this needs to be addressed. I’m being called a “liar” for my set-up for a comedy sketch. What? Are people really taking a comedy sketch that seriously? In my last Anime News Editorial, I featured a re-written version Read the Rest…

MarzGurl in Japan 2010

Near the end of March, I’ll be traveling across Japan. This will be my third time in the country, but this time I’m bringing friends. During those couple of weeks, I MOST LIKELY won’t have any Anime News Editorials or other such videos to post (I may disappear for a little while). So, is there Read the Rest…
