Back in Japan!

Hello all you cupcakes and muffins.
After a long hiatus, i'm finally back here in Japan again!
It feels sooooo good to be back here in this land of awesomeness.

 Life here has been pretty awesome, as always.
So on the first week I was back in Japan, we had a big family dinner back in Funabashi, which is my usual favorite 手巻き寿司(Temaki Sushi)! Every time i come back to Japan, Okaasan will always have a Temaki sushi party to welcome me! Aaaa I feel soooo loved (´∀`)♡

'Temaki sushi is a form of rolled sushi, created in a cone or roll shape. Temaki is different from maki sushi, as you do not cut it into pieces. The English translation for "temaki" is hand roll. Making temaki sushi is simple and does not require appliances nor utensils.'

So, what we always do is we get to choose what we want in our sushi roll.  Okaasan prepared all kinds of toppings. From all kinds of Sashimi, Tamago-yaki, Jap Chae, Hamburg pasta, and an Okinawa dish called 'Goya Champuru'! It's basically bitter guard stir fried with tofu, egg and spam.  It was super yum! 美味しかったですー!

A week later, Otoosan and Okaasan picked me up at my apartment in Shibuya and we went to watch Ikebana performance! Traditional Japanese :3
Read my Ikebana post here:

 This is my favoritex1000000 sweets in Japan!! #sweettooth
Dango is a Japanese sweet made from mochiko (rice flour), hence the chewy texture.
'Dango is eaten year-round, but the different varieties are traditionally eaten in given seasons.'
There are lots of types of Dango, but mine is Mitarashi Dango (みたらし団子)!
This chewy dango skewered into sticks are glazed with sweet soy sauce. Yes, you read it. Sweet soya sauce. You can taste the soya sauce but then, it's sweet! Some people might fancy the taste but some people probably is not used to the sweet soya taste. But for me personally, I MAD LOVE THIS ONE!

And, the pictures below are all what I had for the past few weeks! 

Now, that's all for today! It's 1:39am here right now and i'm tucking myself into bed! 

Good luck,
Have a sweet day!
