Have you watched "Kimi no na ha"?
If so, how did you like it?

I was surprised that they even had it on my last ANA flight although it just ended in the cinemas in Japan. Woah!
American website’s number-crunching puts Makoto Shinkai’s hit ahead of anything from Studio Ghibli.

Haha, this is what I already told you a few days ago. ^__^
I think for Saga Prefecture it's good as it's one of the prefectures that doesn't get that much attention. :( ....

Have you been to Saga Prefecture yet?


This fall's hit anime Yuri!!! on Ice and Saga Prefecture's Sagaprise! project announced on Monday that they are collaborating to promote Yūri Katsuki's home prefecture.

This cast of stars from video games, movies and anime retain all their cuteness while packing on the pounds as a lesson to kids.

This is how many photos are lying around on my computer.
They've been taken in the past 10 years from 2007 onwards ....

There's still so much I want to share with you!
I wish there was just a button I could push and everything appears on my blog just like that.
But I guess life isn't that easy.

The reason why there aren't many updates on my blog is pretty simple. It's not that I have nothing to share. In fact, the contrary is the case.
But I have an office full-time job. Unlike my job in Japan, I now sit in front of the computer the whole day. So, when I finally get home, it's tough to sit in front of the computer yet again to write blog posts or sort photos.

But I won't give up! ^____^

Let me know if there's anything in particular you want to read about.
I used to post about my most recent trips, but I guess now things are just completely chaotic and it doesn't matter what I post - even if it's something from 10 years ago. ;)

There are far too many Hello Kitty cafés out there! XD ...

There's also one in Himeji:

And I've seen a bunch even in the deepest inaka (the latest one was in Shima Onsen, Gunma Prefecture)!

Karatsu Castle in Saga Prefecture (Kyushu) was featured in "Yuri on Ice" in case you were wondering. :)
If you plan to visit, it's not too far from Fukuoka. ^__^

I just noticed I still haven't posted about Karatsu City at all on my blog. Uh .. oh ... ^__^;

A German Alien in Japan who has travelled to all 47 prefectures.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Jasmine.

Originally I'm from Germany.
In 2007 I visited Japan for the first time.
In early 2008 I moved to Japan and am still here now.
I've experienced so much in the past few years and also travelled through all of Japan.

I love sharing my experience (good and bad) as well as the photos I took during my trips.
