The Great Amida Buddha of Kamakura, Japan | Kaakura Daibatsu

Girlfriends and I are taking a trip down to Kamakura (home of the Big Buddha) in a few weeks so we can visit the beach. Feels really strange to be getting excited about visiting what has been a 3 minute walk from me my entire life. After a year of living in Japan those beach parties and surfboards cannot come quick enough!

It’s officially a year in Japan today… What a crazy ride! This place drives me crazy sometimes but at the end of the day I feel so lucky to be living here. Looking forward to another year spent in Sendai in the company of amazing friends :)

So my friend and his boyfriend were supposed to come and stay with me for three days starting from yesterday. He neglected to mention that a) he’d also be bringing his mother and sister to stay in my one room apartment and b) the entire contents of his apartment and fridge would also be accompanying him. He has just finished his JET contract and moved out of his apartment yesterday. Apparently he thought it would be fine to use my apartment as a storage unit. So this is what my apartment currently looks like. I asked him to get rid of some of it today and he said he had to go meet some people and would do it tomorrow. I’m so angry I can’t speak.

Back in Australia for a two week holiday and I have eaten sooooo much food! Yum cha, fish and chips, steak, lamb…the list goes on.

It’s been great seeing friends and family again (especially the pets :3) but how I have missed the variety of food. Sydney, you truly are my food heaven.
I will have to really kick up my fitness regime when I get back though since I’ve been driving everywhere :/

The variety of food is the #2 thing I miss about living in Australia (#1 is my dog of course). I love love love Japanese food, but rice every day sure does get old real quick.

After a year in Sendai I’ve finally caved and got Internet installed in my apartment and now I’m happily binge watching OITNB in bed :)
