January 4. My birthday...
Tokyo to Shikoku. Heaps of Krispy Kreme. Harajuku shopping. Faux-fur. Champagne. Starbucks in Shibuya. Matcha lattes. Karaoke birthday fun. The Smiths 'How Soon is Now'. Origami cats. Cafés, cake and chocolate. Milkfed heart socks. Train rides. Kissing. Friendships. Movies. Takamatsu at night. Text messages, emails and phone calls from far away. Shinkansen. Izakaya food and drinks. Dancing until dawn. Madness. Tim Tams. Hello Kitty Shibuya. Laughter. Parcels and birthday cards in the post. Cozy pubs and sofas. Photos. No sleep. Lost in Translation. Hearts. Caramel tea. Sparkly tights. Spiralling and tumbling. Morning glory.
My birthday in Japan.
Turning 30 is not bad. Not bad at all... I'm happy I'm in Japan, there is no place I'd rather be right now.
