This has been the part of my report I've debated the longest over how to go about writing it up. Mainly in part because I know I have both friends who are well versed in zuka-dom reading this but also friends who know absolutely nothing who will read this so thus I'll probably be putting in explanations of things I normally wouldn't, etc. Same goes with my show reports. Also warning that I may get a bit emotional and cheesy for this part. This was my very first time seeing Takarazuka and so it was a pretty special experience for me.

First let me start this off with saying how much of a big step this was for me. My parents were non-stop worrying and paranoid over this whole trip from the very beginning planning stages which resulted in me panicking and I almost gave up on it a few times, convinced by their way of thinking that I was in over my head and not capable of doing such a big trip on my own. After all, I've only ever traveled alone by myself once and that was just a quick weekend trip to NYC where I had friends with me the entire time once I got there. This was only my 2nd time being out of the country and the first time being on a plane alone, the first time booking hotels on my own, etc etc. It was A LOT of firsts. But you know what? I did it. It wasn't as hard as they made it out to be. I was never in fear of my safety. I did get a little lost a few times but I very easily corrected myself (just got off at the wrong stops or went out the wrong side of the station, etc) with no panic. Despite my no sense of direction, I managed to navigate the train systems of Japan without too much trouble. I even found my way to a few places that weren't planned and just on a whim without a hitch.

So this whole experience was very freeing for me. I proved to myself that I can do this. I'm capable of doing things on my own after all. I never felt homesick. I never broke down and cried (ok I did cry but it was due to the heartache of leaving the theaters, etc). I never felt lonely. Basically none of my fears came true. I'm so incredibly glad I did it and it was seriously the best time I've ever had.

Day 1: DC -> San Francisco -> Osaka

I was going to include Day 2 with Day 1 but then realized I did waaaay too much that day, it really needs its own entry. XD

Ah, here's the last little report. Updating from Darlene's house real quick. This one is going to be kinda small since we didn't do too much besides shop in our last full day and then Friday was the plane ride.

Last Japan Report )

Ok done. Now just gotta entertain myself til people arrive and we go to the con. ^_^

Bah! *raises fist at Abel costume* It's still giving me issues. And man, doll clothes can be really freaking hard to make at times. x_x; Anyways, taking a cosplay break to bring you the next part of the report. XP Lots more pictures in this one. There's like 30 this time, lol.

Japan: Day 7 & 8 )

Dang that one was long. Well, the last 2 days don't have much so that report will be shorter though not sure when I'll get it up. Will try my best to get it up before I leave for Darlene's tomorrow night though. But I got A LOT to do before then. ^^; And I'm tired of typing reports tonight so will do it tomorrow...some time. o_o;; But really not much to talk about in the last part.

~Lyn
rose_of_pain: (takarazuka)
Oh man! I totally forgot that I hadn't finished the Japan trip reports yet. ^^;; And still have the rest of the pictures to show too. So here's the next one. (trying to get them done before AN) There are some pictures but not til near the end.

Day 5 and 6: Kyoto )

Wow, I'm starting to really realize we did A LOT in each day. 'Cause I didn't realize we did so much on day 6 til I wrote this. XP Ok, going to try to somehow get the last 2 reports up before I go to AN. ^^;;

I'm in a big Takarazuka mood at the moment since I found a lot of clips on youtube that I hadn't seen before. ^_^ And they also had a lot of Elisabeth scenes including my favorite song. Eee!

Bah, well, still no sign of any of the other guys and whether or not they have their pictures. And I really just need to go ahead and do the rest of the reports before I forget stuff. This part will unfortunantly have no pictures since, like I said before, I didn't have my camera during this part of the trip. Which sucks because it's probably the most interesting part of the trip in my opinion. So I was really hoping to have Jordan's pictures. Ah well.

Japan Day 3 and 4: Mt. Koya-san )

~Lyn

This is the story of 6 college students from St. Mary's and 2 professors who ventured out across the world to Japan.



Day 1 and 2: Ginza )

The 3rd day I managed to leave my camera behind at the hotel. x_x So we had it sent to the hotel in Kyoto but we weren't going to be there til Sunday since we were going to be in Koya-san for 2 days so I didn't get the camera until like Monday or Tuesday, I forgot exactly when. So I'm going to try to wait for Jordan's pictures before doing the next part of the report. If he takes too long, I'll do them just without the pretty pictures.

Back from Japan. Miss it already.

I have a feeling the next week or so is going to be hell. Especially since there's a baby in the house right now as my parents are taking care of the grandkid.

Also not that great that I come back and am already stressed out over a lot of things. Especially con related stuff. Looks like I'll have to do a post trying to figure out what exactly is going on as I'm very confused on a lot of things.

Hm, it's taking me some time to get back used to the regular keyboard. *laughs*

Reports will probably start whenever I get Jordan's pictures to go along with it as I ended up not having my camera with me for like 4 days so ended up only taking like 60 or so pictures total as a result.

The trip was absolutely amazing and I don't regret going at all! Here's some quick highlights:
- Getting a picture taken with two geishas
- Seeing a kabuki actor come on stage in a duck suit to the tune of 2010 A Space Odessey (sp) theme in the middle of a kabuki play
- Getting addicted to Pocari Sweat and our search for the Pocari-sama
- Super Mister Ichiban Gaijin-sama-dono-bozu aka Eeyore
- Yosh!
- Spending two days in a Buddhist monastary with a monk named Kurto-san
- Doing Zen mediataion with a monk named Thomas-san
- Eating as Mister Donuts...many times. And our trips to Book Off and Circle K.
- Standing next to Hideyoshi and Nobununga's graves
- Getting interviewed by many japanese school students
- Seeing a HUGE buddha statue
etc. etc. It was plain amazing. I have to find a way to go back now.

Hey everyone! I'm in Ginza right now and its awesome even if it is raining. lol But yay for free usage of computers in the lounge. Dont know how much I'll update this while I'm here though. Probably save most of the stuff for the big reports when I get back.

But man, everyone here is so small and adorable! Especially the hotel rooms. Like all the guys were complaining having problems moving around and being too big for the bed while I was just fine. Ha! Now Brennan cant make fun of my shortness anymore because now I have the advantage. The hotel room is like just perfect size for me really. lol

Kabuki play tonight! And I found where the dollfie store is last night so going to check that out today while shopping. ^_^ I'm very excited.

JAPAN!
