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.

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
