yokohama once again 横浜ふたたび

yokohama is one of my favourite places for day trips; the sea breeze, the peaceful tree-lined streets with coffee shops, the artsy little shops that sells wooden spoons with rabbits carved on top. i’m not surprised it’s such a popular dating spot for couples, especially after sunset where it sparkles with colourful lights that blink cheerfully (。◕‿‿◕。)


on this day, i started my journey by getting off at 桜木町 sakuragicho, which is the title of a yuzu song.


after that, i took the bus to the red brick warehouse >w< i've been wanting to visit for a very long time but never had the chance or time to. the 赤いくつ red shoe buses run around yokohama‘s famous spots and it costs 100円 each time you get on, no matter how far you travel.


arrival at the red brick warehouse. i had no idea what it REALLY was, so i was pleasantly surprised when i stepped inside.


lush! you can smell it from miles away ヾ(((´*゜∀゜*`)))ノシ i wish i bought more lush before coming home… it’s my dream to have my house smell like lush


more lush goodies!!!


there are a lot of small restaurants and cafes inside 🙂


cute little interior shops that make me want to have my own house~


there was a shop where everything in there has a rabbit motif. it’s creepy yet adorable at the same time.


i moved to chinatown after some shopping at the red brick warehouse! chinatown always smells like home – the steaming buns, the red lanterns, the chattering old ladies, the old messy shop selling chinese herbs and medicine.


santa claus in chinatown seems a bit out of place, though. it feels like a horror movie gone wrong.


back at shibuya. it’s funny how it feels like home, despite me being a foreigner.


high school boys on their way back from sports practice 🙂 i love japanese school uniforms, with their matching sports bags and parka jackets.


i bought an adorable two-tiered wooden accessory box at the red brick warehouse for 1050円 (`・ω・´)ノシ
