Wow, it's been over 2 weeks since I've last blogged.. exams got to me so I really didn't have any time to do anything unfortunately :( Also I've been working a lot lately, pretty much everyday so on my days off I'm trying to film as much as possible. Kind of sucks because I wanted to film a lot during these holidays, but I guess at the same time at least I can save up to shop in Japan! I do have a lot of videos already pre-filmed so I just have to edit them!

Anyway I've been wanting to blog more lately to get all my Japan posts out of the way, so today I'm going to do another one!

During my stay in Tokyo, I decided to spend 2 days in Shizuoka to visit my host family again. I stayed at their house for 2 weeks last year when I went on a short exchange program in a Japanese highschool (Shizuoka Gakuen). I try to visit them at least once every time I go to Japan.

Janelle and I took the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) to Shizuoka.



It looks like an airplane!



My ticket~



Janelle and I~

While on the train, we passed by Mount Fuji



Chiho met me at the train station, and then we decided to go shopping for a bit before her parents picked us up from Shizuoka station.


We went to Shibuya109 Dreams! Also known as Shizuoka109. It's pretty much the same as Shibuya109, just smaller


Purikura!




While waiting for Chiho's parents, we went to Starbucks to rest. About exactly one year ago, I sat in the exact same spot in Starbucks and took the exact same photo lol.

My maccha latte!



Chiho's parents came to pick us up!


Went back to their place~


Since it was quite late, we went straight out to dinner. Ended up going to a BBQ place (kind of like Korean BBQ)




Chiho's parents are so cute!


I'm not sure if it's just me and I'm just easily amused, but this thing amazed me. It's an electronic pen that you just use to touch things on the menu that you would like to order. The waiters will then bring your order to you without having to call them to take any orders!



And here is a food spam~

















Dessert time!!



After that we went straight back home. Chiho and her mum helped us set up our futons~



That's all for now! I've been trying really hard to make time to film more videos but it's just hard with the amount of time I have right now. However I do have quite a lot of videos already filmed so I'm trying my best to edit them all asap!

Whoa, that electronic pen for the menu is really cool! I think that would be a nice thing to have instead of waiting for you waiter to take your order, especially when it's busy.

The food all look so tasty *_*

no, the pen idea IS pretty cool, assuming you don't need to ask the waiter anything. sometimes food comes with crap on it you don't want that you can like, have not added (ie, powered cheese at italian restaurants), or if you're allergic to certain substance that might be in the food, like egg or shellfish. i must say, the bbq looks tempting...
