Japan’s Aokigahara Jukai

A quiet, mystical place it is, Japan’s Aokigahara Jukai.

Located in Yamanashi-ken Fujikawaguchiko, it is infamous as a suicidal spot in Japan.
A vast dense forest heavily sheltered by shrubs and trees, daylight hardly penetrates the making the whole place dark even at noon.

It isn’t a mere co-incident that Aokigahara also known as the “Sea Of Trees” is a place of doom. A place where you are bound to lost sense of directional because every path looks the same. Here is a dead zone for cell phones and compasses won’t be working due to the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area’s volcanic soil.
It is extremely sad to know that the “Sea Of Trees” is said to be “a perfect place to die” for determined suicidals. Because they understand they will never ever walk out of the forest alive again.

Actually, Aokigahara Jukai is not quite the spooky and creepy image everyone have. There are in fact a few hiking trails for adventurous nature lovers to enjoy. Conducted tours are available too. But of course, venturing out of these trails are strictly forbidden and taken at your own risk.

From the amount of suicides, Aokigahara Jukai is undoubtedly nothing but an eerie haunted place to many. But in the eyes of mother nature, this is just a forest, beautiful, magical and full of life…

It is a place which I would want to visit someday. But NOT ALONE for sure!

Tokyo’s sakura

The streets of Tokyo is covered in shades of soft pink now as Cherry blossom fully bloomed. They are going to stay for a week after full blossom before the petals started dropping off. Beauty is short-lived… How true …

Consider yourself really lucky if you happen to be in town now without the faintest idea to see Sakura. This year, Sakura started blooming about 10 days earlier because of the warmer weather as compared to annual years.

Before Sakura,,, there is the Cedar Pollen allergy!
They finally caught me this year (v__v`)…
Walking down the streets without wearing a mask?
The mere thoughts of it makes me sneeze (>o<)=3
The sad thing is, I would have to battle with pollen allergy for every spring (T-T)
Cherry blossom wouldn’t be something to be looking forward to anymore, perhaps…

But seeing people wearing masks while enjoying cherry blossom viewing sort of bought a sense of relief. At least I am not alone struggling with pollen allergy (@`v`@)

Cow pattern cake roll

Japanese pâtissier took roll cakes to a new height by coming up with artistic decorations.This one makes headlines with its cute cow patterns when it was featured on TV and magazines. They even have a funny name for it, of course totally “cow”. The name is “Moo moo milk roll”.

If you are curious about what is the ingredient used to create the black patches, it said edible bamboo charcoal.
Cake roll for afternoon tea,,, sinful but sounds good!
And it wouldn’t harm to have something that looks so lovely.

This cake roll could make a fabulous gift for some surprises,
but too bad, it is only sold in Japan .:*~*:.

Japanese way to coordinate stripes, plaids dresses

Dresses with prints like vertical horizontal stripes, gingham checked, make unique pieces but coordination can be hard work.

In Japan prints like such in soft tones are making appearances this spring. So here are some mix & match techniques from ViVi magazine.

1. Keep a look out for the latest trend this year, dresses layered with organdy.
This organdy layered gingham check dress has a cute side cut-outs. ViVi chose to have some fun with a sexy lacy inner to overlap the cut-outs. The coordination looks fabulous like a single piece and very feminine.

2. Vertical stripes dress layered with organdy offers a very soft soothing tone. The point to look out for will be wedge lace up sneakers, which couldn’t be more perfect for the dress and did justice to show off long, slender legs (^_-)

3. Simple monotone horizontal stripes dress worn over white shirt can look as elegant. The key to this coordination is that ViVi had purposely picked a tank dress to go over.

For more details, please inquire through the blue button at the bottom.

Creative glasses

Stumbled upon this interesting product in one of the sites.
Can you imagine what this is for from the irregular shape of the protruding glasses?

Convenient goods from Japan

Ever have such experience as you just feel like you want to read a book or watch TV while lying down real flat. So this is precisely how the magic glass was born (*^v-)b

It lets you read a book or watch TV without having to change your posture or lifting your body or arms. Good for spending some lazy time (*^-`)v

Couldn’t comment on how useful it is since I had never tried on it before.
But just one thing… I wish there are some efforts put into the design though… something that looks cute or cool would be nice in my opinion.
