I’m Back From Japan

Posted on


I’m back from my super cute holiday so SCK will be getting back to normal too. Big thanks to Natasja for looking after things, and also to MissMuffcake and Nic for writing extra posts. We’ve got some great giveaways and reviews coming up including subscription boxes, stationery and more.


I’ve been busy unpacking all my kawaii purchases and as you can see, I bought rather a lot of stuff! That includes some amazing things for a giveaway very soon.

I’ll be sharing a few posts here about my trip, with many more on my own blog and in another book. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to know more about, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

      Thanks, it was super fun! I wish I was able to visit more of the cute cafes, but there are only so many meals in a day :)

    That must have been an amazing trip! So many amazing photos ♥
    Just curious: Do you have to study a lot of Japanese in preparation for the trip? I hope to go one day soon and was wondering how much to study. I hope to buy one of your amazing guides too!

      I am unfortunately no good at learning languages so I only speak a few basic words and phrases. It’s rarely been a problem, though knowing some Japanese will give you more options. Most Japanese speak a little English and pointing and smiling help a lot. I definitely recommend learning Hiragana and Katakana though – they’re really easy to memorise and it makes a big difference with signs and packaging. I used the Dr Moku apps: http://blog.askingfortrouble.co.uk/2012/05/japan-extras-dr-moku-apps/

    Fantastic! Thank you so much for the help! I took a year of it in college and know some basic grammar, all the hiragana & katakana, and very few kanji. But it’s great to know the language isn’t a huge barrier when traveling!
