Cool + Kawaii, DC to Japan

Touchdown in Japan! Jetlagged & Ready to Party ๐Ÿ˜ธ

Ahhhhh Japan, I was all up in you not even a few weeks ago and already, I miss you.

I’ll see you again in May, ok?! ^^

There is so much goodness and fun times to share from this last visit, but check out the preview to see what you’re in from #dctoJapan.

Of course I went to Japan for work (Design Festa& tattoos) but my stay was sandwiched with play.

I can’t work the same way I do in the States.

In the US, I can literally get off a flight, go straight to a tattoo shop and work the day away with no worries.

When I travel to Japan, I have to give myself time to rest and readjust, which honestly is an adjustment for me altogether, but aye! Yah gotta do what yah gotta do.

Fiddling on Instagram (I’m @ipukekawaii there if you ever want to follow my feed) I saw that my customer and homie, VaJohn was turning up in Tokyo.

WHHHAAAAA!!!!! Nucca! We can’t even cross paths in the same city but I messaged him to see what was up. And it was a wrap.

The party he was promoting was only to happen a few hours after I stepped off the plane.

We both saidย fuuuggggggg jet lag and leggo!

That was until I finally got to Shu-san’s house and was able to get comfortable … haha

I cancelled plans to party so fast and postponed seeing VJ until the next day.

Bruh! Even with sleep and a whole bunch of kawaii I look a hawt arse mess. >.<

Anywhoo, I got my life together and hit the streets.

Not without my Dr. Pepper though.

Iย just never know what will trigger anxiety in Tokyo, especially being balls to the wall tired.
