If all goes according to plan, by the time this post goes live, I'll be soaring over the Pacific Ocean! My destination? Japan, of course!
Since this is my first time back to my home-away-from-home in four years and I'll be attending my host sister's wedding while I'm there, this trip is a rather big event for me. You know, I always refer to the family I stayed with when I lived in Japan for a year as my "host family," but more accurately, they're my Japanese family - we may not be blood related, but they hold a very dear place in my heart, and not only did they make the trek down to Australia for my wedding, but we have kept in touch over these past four years, which I think says a lot! I consider myself very lucky to be able to call them my second family.

|A necessary pilgrimage for any fan!|
|My favorite local bar|
|Crazy tie-in merchandise and campaigns|
|And, of course, good eats|
Finally, I hope to do a few round-up post throughout my trip of particularly noteworthy events, which will consist of photos taken from my Instagram feed and some additional commentary. Of course, I'll also write up much more in-depth posts when I get back at the end of the month, so please look forward to them!
