After years of saving, I’m finally jetting off back to Japan this week and I am super duper excited! Don’t worry though, as SCK will (mostly) be carrying on as usual. Here’s what to expect for the rest of May.
- We’ll be posting 4 days a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, plus sponsor news and offers every other weekend.
- Most new blog posts will be promoted on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr as normal.
- Giveaways will be back in June and I will buy some cute stuff in Japan for a special giveaway!
- Natasja will be on hand to answer any questions in the comments and fix any problems and I’ll be checking in occasionally too. Please be patient if you email us.
If you’d like to follow my adventures, I’ll be sharing lots of photos on my personal Instagram account @marcelinesmith and posting updates on Tumblr at Kaiwa Japan. I’ll try and update occasionally on the SCK Instagram too.
I have lots planned for my three weeks including Design Festa and a little tour through Kobe, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Osaka, Kyoto and Yokohama. I’ll be spending most of my time in Tokyo though and promise to visit lots of kawaii shops and character cafes. If you’re heading to Japan soon too, check out my Planning for Japan guide for details on all the cutest places to visit.
See you when I get back!
