In my first Japan trip, the novice traveller me definitely did not belong to “The Planner” type. I didn’t ask my aunt the details of our Osaka trip nor did I research about the prefecture we were in so I had an assumption Osaka is not that interesting compared to Tokyo. All I knew that morning of April 3 was to pack all of my things in my luggage because we’ll head to Tokyo that day. I thought my Osaka trip ended in USJ, but day 4 was dedicated to explore Osaka and little did I know it will give me one of my memorable moments in my life!

The place I’d love to travel again in Japan, if I were asked, would definitely be Kyoto. Since I already travelled here during spring, I’m planning to come back again on either summer or autumn and will tour the places I haven’t been to. With K’LOOP (Kyoto World Heritage Loop Bus) our do-it-yourself tour covered four popular destinations: Nijo-jo, Kinkaku-ji, Ginkaku-ji, and Kiyomizu-dera. For every site, I collected tickets and guide fliers as souvenirs that I later put in my A5 journal. (I lost the guide book of Nijo-jo though (T_T) Here’s the video of my creative journal featuring my trip in Kyoto:
Sorry for the low quality oTL
It “heals” me in a way I could convey my feelings through writing and drawing at the same time on a blank canvas. It teaches me patience and temporarily makes me forget I am sad.
