Loook, it didn't click with me right away that living in Australia means Asia is now at my doorstep...when I tell you I will be back here multiple times a year, is no joke.👹👹 

Everyone knows Japan is one of my favourite places. Easy. But Japan during Golden Week??!  

COUNT ME IN!!  *note this is not a pervy piss play thing, its actually a string of holidays close together people take the week off....hence golden week...

Admittedly,  Osaka is a food trip... I fuckin loveeee Japanese food, but even more honestly, I took this trip to be petty.  I met this cool Brazilian guy who was in my face for two months bragging about his upcoming trip to Japan..."its SO HARD, to get to Japan"...."I have to go through so many hurdles to get there because I am from Brasil and they never approve our visas"....."I cant wait for my time in Japan"....none of this would bug me if it hadn't been stated in a tone that was implying I couldn't ever go there if I wanted. (I did not tell him I had already been) what did I do? Two weeks before he set off I booked this nice little holiday....said nothing to him...and let him watch me hop along Japan for two weeks without a care in the world. 

Sit down, be humble 🎵

I landed and ran straight to Dontonbori, this is where heaps of nightlife and stuff happens....yada yada. 


              On IG people were taking this pic and of course, i had to. because I'm cReAtIve 

I was TIRED as, so stopped into a cute gyoza spot, got some poses on, and then hit the hay...

as in hey, you have a lot to see you're not sleeping yet. 

 how can you sleep when there is so much to eat???? just look at ....this takoyaki.

and this apple waffle ice cream sandwich?!?

and this refreshing bev-er-augeeee

(whose the other drink you aren't asking?)
She is the coolest person you could ever meet, a fucking legend. 


As you'd expect, everything is alive and bustling! The neon lined streets packed with incredible smells will live in my mind forever or until I forget about it (i have)

And during the day, she aint too shabby

unlike me...I needed to fix these under eye bags....hehe (next day) *googles energy drink*

When I came across the super tiny can of Monster3, i is FUCKING ADORABLE. 

what I didn't know is that this tiny cunt of a drink is potent as absolute fuck. There is little doubt in my mind that drinking a regular sized can of monster full of this concoction would kill you straight up. 

Maybe I'm being dramatic, maybe I'm not. 
All I know is I could feel my heartbeating in my asshole...


I kicked it at Triangle Park in Amerikamura along with the hip youths. They gather around with booze to skateboard and just vibe. 10/10 for a chill evening.


Want to do some serious bar hoppping? There is a 2 story structure called Misono Building, each floor is a U shaped hallway that is lined with these many doors. Inside each door is a bar, all of which are various sizes and aesthetic. It looks a bit dodgy, but some of those places were truly high end. 



                     nobody could explain this. It was put up randomly and so be it. 

I'm late to posting! AGAIN

 Phew!! BUSYYYYYY! I have Bali to talk about here, but no time to do it! (also, for me, Bali is.....not it. People were kind, the rest of it was....look, it works for some. Its the Puerto Vallarta of Australia and we already know how I feel about that)

I am close to finalising permanent residency in Australia, work is full-on, and I have spent most of my free time growing my body and my TikTok following (acting like a moron and saying shit). 

That said, it is coming! - after I come back from Hawaii sometime in Nov. Idk, i might throw on another Japan trip. we shall see. 

You can watch the highlights in my IG for now.

ALSO, wtf am I writing this for? I am the only one on here hahahha yeah. good times. 

But actually, Hi Buffy. I know you're here <3.. 


Lets clear the air. I am not a weeb. I am not into some weird Japanophillia. You won't catch me shoving Hello Kitty shit in your face.  I am a serious person who came here purely for the cultural immersion of Japan's Golden Week and sight seeing.


                            All of that is a lie. 



My 7 year old niece was having Japan Week at school, meaning I was finally able to be the cool guncle who was in Japan sending her pics of all the things she was talking about.... take that John Kittle. 

How I looked this whole trip.....

Seriously, everything felt properly photogenic. 

I'm a train girl, look at me being all mysterious....hey fun fact, some train cars in Japan are women know whats silly? If you get on at some stations, those lines don't add up to those at other stops and eventually you're the only man in a car full of ladies. 😬

FUCK ME UP!!!!!💓


And it doesn't end there! Kyoto has a billion shrines and temples to see....this post is 90% pic dump.

Shosei-en Garden

*adds to tinder profile, updates bio* "I'm worldly"

Me asking random people to take pics for me and forcing feedback while I look for other places to pose

i was fortunate enough to not miss both the 800th celebration of  Jodo Shinshu and the 850th celebration of the birth of Shinran Shonin! (like duh, why would i)

There is an incredible feeling of power and transition - what felt like an endless line of people take a symbolic journey around the temple. You can't take photos inside, and of course out of respect, I kept pics as a whole at a minimum. 

Higashi Hongan-ji Temple

Kyoto Gyoen National Garden

                                                    See that? PUT. A. BIRD. ON. IT

Obsessed with the stories carved in everywhere

Shōkoku-ji Temple


was a little weird this temple was almost completely empty. 

堀川 遊歩道 Park under Takeyamachi Bridge

Just random stuff around Kyoto.

So. Art.

The incredible basic bitch drive to take photos at Fushimi Inari was the sole influence behind this trip. For YEARSSSSSSS I envied people posting on IG with these orange pillars looking all coool, unbothered, wordly, trendy and hip. Yeah, fuck sake.  It was MY time to shrine. 


Fushimi Inari Taisha

Nah yeah, it was fucking awesome. When you start off at the entry it's so terribly packed with tourists holding their phones up that its hard to believe this is the same place... you really just get pics of people and their phones...the trick to this is to keep walking....and walking....

and walking...

and walking...

and walking.

eventually you're half way up a mountain and you're met with large spans of empty pathways free of other influence hungry photographers (like me)....this...this is your moment. 

Take selfies, make tiktoks, stop and read a book. Hell, anything. 

I went to a lot of great restaurants and fave was this gay bar called Apple. Due to how packed in things are, it was a bitch and a half to find....but its small, intimate, lovely, and fantastic. The owner is incredibly kind and helpful, 10/10 would recommended.   In a silly way, it was a bit of a bummer to be there and the other patrons be from America ---hey, it was something.
