Hi minna, no I haven't died of sadness from being back in France XD It's just that I was too tired to do anything. When I went back to my place, it took me 3 hours to unpack all my stuff, and I had hardly slept in Paris so I was still really tired (stupid jetlag), and first I did when I turned on the computer was going to Clubbox and downloading my 3 weeks lateness on Arashi >A< (luckily Arashi is the only fandom I'm following now @_x), I haven't even checked the community or I'll go crazy with all the posts I'll have to read to catch up XD And then I had to go back to work only two days later T0T I LOOKED LIKE A ZOMBIE!!!! Because no matter at which hour I'm going to sleep (at first it didn't exceeded 9:00PM @_x) I woke up at 5:00AM. But last night I went to bed at 1:00AM (because I was watching "Letters from Iwo Jima" and the bonus DVD) but still I woke up at 7:00AM T0T STUPID STUPID JETLAG!!!( Iwo Jima kara no Tegami... in French... WTF HAPPENED TO SAIGO?Collapse )( I want to make babies to my wall so badlyCollapse )
So enough of my stupid life and moving on to the most interesting part:How to make it to Japan, see Arashi and come back in one piece
So I though it might be helpful to say what it has costed me and all to make this trip to Japan, because more than one year ago, I though Japan was like... unreachable, but it's not, and it's absolutely totally worth all the hard work you can put in it. Also a lot of people will tell you that Japan is expensive. Yes it's expensive as Paris can be expensive, depends on what you're willing to do, and how wisely you're spending your money (you can say I've bought too many stuff but that's why I went there, and I stayed in the range of money I brought with me. Of course if I had decided to travel everywhere around Japan, I would have bought wayyyyyyyyyyy more less, it all depends on what you want to do, but save money ok XD), like eveywhere in the world. When I went to Japan, I brought with me exactly 393000Y (which is around 2000€), plane ticket not included, and were to be include in it the hotel, the transport and the food for 17 days. Hopefully I had to pay the hotel first thing, so I didn't have to worry about it for the rest of my stay. And I stayed exactly in the money I had, (the day I left Tokyo for Narita, I had eactly 1000Y left for the train and 140Y for a bottle of water, that was all XDDDDD). I only used my credit card once at HMV (which is one of the rare places in Japan where you can pay with a credit card) and it was just for a DVD, and the second time was at Nartia airport, for the post office to send my stuff to France. You can go for less (Jennifer only brought 300000Y and she was OK at the end, she just bought less), so just save money depending on what you want to do, AND CHECK WHAT YOU HAVE LEFT EVERYDAY!!!! That's why I mainly bought at the end of my stay, so I didn't have to worry about the things left to do.( The planeCollapse )( The hotelCollapse )( The foodCollapse )( TransportCollapse )( Do I have to learn Japanese?Collapse )( Arashi concertCollapse ) ( The Harajuku Johnny's ShopCollapse )
Hummm... I think that's all, if anybody has any question, I will be happy to answer them.
I will post soon enough again now that I have a scanner, I have tons of stuff to share \ooooooo/
make graphics make graphics people, make pretty wallies!!!!! XD~
