My Trip to Tokyo, Japan – Part I
In October of 2006, I had the opportunity to visit Japan, a country I had wanted to visit for awhile now. So, as part of my post-graduation travels, I booked a trip to Tokyo to experience the unique Japanese culture meshed with urban life. I also got to visit such popular tourist spots as Mount Fuji (Fujisan), the Ginza district, Takeshita-dori street in the Harajuku area, Tokyo Dome City, etc. Picture heavy post below!
Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)
Let me be honest: I love chick flicks. Most movies about romance, tossed in with some goofy comedy or drama, and I’m so there (probably). When I heard about the movie adaptation of a book I’ve heard good things about, I was quite interested in seeing the movie. I’ve never been a fan of Asian cast movies (i.e. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), albeit being Asian myself, but that’s mostly because I thought movies with thick accents would be not so easy to follow.
Well, it turned out that that was the case.
