Normally I don't get the opportunity to visit the Azalea Festival so I was beyond thrilled to make it this year 😍 The Azalea Festival is at the Nezu Shrine in Tokyo and only costs ¥200 to step foot into the garden 🙌🏼 How stunning is this? Check out my Japan Instagram Story Feature for more snaps from the festival 💕
But wait! In certain areas of Japan and even around Tokyo, cherry blossoms are still blooming 🌸 I can't get over how lucky I've been 💛 This break has been much needed for me and I'm excited to have another week to enjoy my city ☺️ Are any of you traveling this weekend?
After a windy few days, the cherry blossom season in Tokyo has come to an end 🌸 It really is a special treat to be able to enjoy the pink petals throughout this concrete jungle I call home ☺️ Did you get any cherry blossoms where you are? 💕
Hello from Tokyo 🌸 After a chaotic couple of weeks, I'm so glad to be home ☺️ I get questions about my frequent trips to Tokyo so I'll share a few fun facts about that 🙋🏻♀️ 💙 I was born and raised in Tokyo until I was 18. ❤️ My Mom is American and my Dad is Japanese so my brother and I grew up bilingual and have dual citizenship. 💚 My parents and brother still live in Tokyo. 💜 Our house is in Shibuya, one of the busiest areas in Tokyo (you know the Shibuya crossing? We live about 10 minutes away from there). 💛 Thanks for reading! Have you visited Japan before? I'm always happy to help out if you're planning a visit 🙆🏻♀️
Reminiscing on the best time spent showing my brother around Los Angeles ❤️ The Santa Monica Pier is one of my favorite places to go.....during the weekdays 😉 Who loves ferris wheels? 🎡🎢🎠
While my little brother was visiting from Tokyo, I took him to my favorite local weekend getaway spot: Palm Springs 🌴 We shared stories, laughs and @line39wine's vibrant Sauvignon Blanc under the desert sky 💛 Where's your weekend wanderlust? #FindYourWeekend #Ad
