Back to Japan for Summer Hols / 夏休み! ☀

I quite miss my Muay Thai birthday trip to Thailand and am suffering from some post-holiday blues. Well, I guess the only way to get over the post-holiday blues is to go for another holiday so it is a good thing that we are away in Japan now for summer!! Woohoo!!! (*⌒▽⌒*)θ~♪

I won't say it's been a while since we were back in Japan since we traveled there last year for the Sakura season {see the cherry blossoms at a park in Nagoya, Yoyogi Park, Ueno Park etc.} but I guess it has been some time since we were there during summer.

Usually we'd try to avoid this period since it's the peak travel period {more expensive, more crowded etc.} but nowadays I guess there's no choice since we can only take longer family hols during the school holiday time. No more just whisking away at whim anytime throughout the year...

The boy prefers to travel during summer actually as we can travel lighter and there's more clothes suitable for our own tropical weather on sale there. After our crazy fun-but-tiring trip to 7 Japanese cities last year, I'm quite happy to just stay in Tokyo this time and it's a good thing that Tokyo doesn't get overwhelmingly hot during summer.. unlike Kyoto.

I've nothing much planned except to go to some of my fave Tokyo haunts, eat all the Japanese food I miss so much, meet up with some friends and bring Lil Pumpkin to Asakusa Hanayashiki Theme Park.

The boy wants to go check out some Japanese CrossFit boxes though and work out there. I might join him for one or two sessions too. It will be cool to see how they conduct it in Japan!

If you'd like to keep up with our Japan travels, do connect with me on Facebook, Instagram and even Snapchat. Enjoy your June holidays too and see you all when we are back! xox

P.S. I did not forget about posting on my Muay Thai training camp experience hahaha.. will do that when I return to Singapore! Have a look at my shopping haul post + video for that trip if you missed it! (☆▽☆)

How fun! I love those big huge characters that little pumpkin is standing with. I always say one needs a vacation after their vacation.
