Lucky me! My first time in Tokyo and I already saw Sakura- well, one Sakura tree, but it's totally fine with me. I can't even explain to you what I felt when I saw cherry blossoms. We told our Cool Japan/ 100 Tokyo tour guides to find us Sakura since we came a few weeks in advance before their actual bloom. Good thing we went to Shinjuku Gyoen Park and found a Sakura tree there- yes, only one tree but worth driving and seeing for. It's so pretty and pink and just absolutely worth staring for hours and hours (although I didn't do that because we had to go watch Tokyo Runway after lol). My parents went to Tokyo a week after my trip and it was at the perfect time. They were telling me how beautiful it is to see all the white/pink Sakura trees together and that we should go there again next year as a family. Hmm, maybe we should. I can just imagine the feeling I felt when I saw one Sakura tree- but like 100x more awesome. BMS.
There are just so many nice locations in Japan that wherever you're standing, it's bound to be picture perfect. Since we had a full day of touring for Cool Japan and 100 Tokyo, we decided to take a quick outfit shot in a small empty street somewhere in Harajuku street. Even from afar you can still see the flashing lights and busy street! It was around 10-12 degrees when we went to Tokyo so I made sure I was all covered up. I'm really lamigin (ibang level) so I have to be in complete gear when I go out- that means wearing thermals, a thick jacket, warm boots, sometimes a hat and a scarf. I wore this during out first tour day and since it's still an event tour, I wore chunky boots that's unbelievably comfier than some of my sneakers. Good thing I bought it the night before my trip! It's also always a hassle to be wearing a lot of accessories when you're traveling because you don't want your arms/ neck to feel heavy when you're walking around the whole day, so this scarf from Jewelled Scarves became my favorite travel accessory in an instant. It's a scarf that has embellishment so it looks like a necklace when worn. You can wear it in so many ways too! Scarf tucked under the beads, twisted around the necklace or use it like a normal scarf like how I did. With an all black ensemble, you'll look chic right away.
Ps. Jewelled Scarves is available in Rustan's Edsa Shang-rila Mall and Rustan's Our Very Own shop in Resorts World.
