Vet ni vad? Jag och min vän Andrea ska åka till Japan 20 december - 6 januari! Och det pirrar i hela min kropp. Jag har alltid velat åka till Japan. Nu behöver vi er hjälp! Har du varit i Japan? Bor du i Japan? Har du tips/råd/vänner/boende? Vi uppskattar all hjälp och träffar mer än gärna trevliga människor. Vi ska främst vara i Tokyo men tänker resa omkring lite också. Maila mig på hildagrahnat@gmail.com om du inte vill kommentera här.

Guess what? Me and my friend Andrea are going to Japan December 20 - January 6! And I couldn't be more excited. I have wanted to go to Japan ever since I can remember. Now we need your help! Do you live in Japan? Have you been to Japan? Do you have tips/advice/friends/a place to stay? We appreciate all and any help and would love to meet some nice people. We will primarily be staying in Tokyo but plan to travel around for a bit as well. Email me at hildagrahnat@gmail.com if you don't want to comment here.

  2. Oh, så fantastiskt!

    Jag har en vän som ska hålla till i Kyoto i sådär åtta månader, men start från början av oktober. Jag håller tummarna för att jag ska kunna åka och besöka henne för Japan är nog en såndär grej man måste uppleva,

    om ni ska åka runt kan det vara en god ide att köpa tågkort här i sverige för det kan man inte köpa på plats (ca 2500 kr för 7 dagar har jag för mig...). jag var där 2 intensiva veckor i somras: tokyo, kanasawa, kyoto och naoshima (konst-mecka) med omkringliggande öar. maila mig om du vill ha mer tips!

    annars tycker jag mycket om dina bilder.

  12. I studied abroad in Tokyo and loved it; the Japanese are some of the world's most hospitable and interesting people. Definitely spend some time in the big commercial districts like Akihabara and Harajuku--they're fascinating--but then also try to escape to the countryside; it's beautiful. Lake Chuzenjiko is not a bad train ride from the city, and it's breathtaking. Some good hikes, too! Ganbatte kudasai!

  14. Hilda, you are going to take such awesome pictures in Japan, I so look forward to see them on your blog:-). I,ve been there last June, but only for a few days (i live in China so it was quite easy) it was a lifetime dream and I wasn't disappointed. Tokyo is a must of course but go to Kyoto if you have sometime, it's just fairy-tale gorgeous x

  15. Hopefully it'll be snowing! Kyoto and it's old, old temples are the most amazing things to see covered in white blanket! Tokyo, you have your obvious picks like Harajuku, which is super fun. But there are little pockets of fun everywhere! Cute shops in Daikanyama in particular. Have fun!

  18. Hej! Sorry I don't have a blog or anything so I'd look a total stranger to you (I have commented on one of your blog entry before though). I'm not some kind of weirdo, just a 24-year-old girl who has been following your blog for a while..... :P Just thought I might be able to help you a bit as I'm from Tokyo and living here.
    If you want feel free to contact me (jellybeans1021 at yahoo dot co dot jp)! ;)
    Otherwise, I hope you'll enjoy your trip to Japan and will be looking forward to seeing your pictures from Japan. :)

  19. Lucky girl! I went to Japan over the summer and had an amazing week in Tokyo. If you're a fan of the Studio Ghibli animated movies, I would definitely recommend visiting the Ghibli museum, which is a short train ride outside of the city. It was a very magical experience. Also, for inexpensive food options, definitely check out the basement levels of department stores and the food courts in train stations (the main Tokyo station was a particular favorite). Many people there give out free samples. I'd also recommend visiting Nikko if you want to see some beautiful old temples, even though it is a few hours train ride away. Have an amazing time, and I can't wait to see the pictures!

  20. Instämmer med alla andra, ser verkligen fram emot dina bilder från Japan. Jag var där på min bröllopsresa 2008. Kyoto (som är magiskt), Okinawa (för att få lite sol o bad) och Tokyo för shopping och galenskap. Bland det roligaste jag gjorde var att besöka en riktig karaokebar och att kolla in utbudet av maskeraddräkter på varuhuset tokyu hands.

  21. Oh, by the way, I'd recommend you to explore this lovely district called Shimokitazawa in Tokyo. It's about 10min train ride from Shinjuku/Shibuya, and the area's got very cozy, laid-back atmosphere with many nice second-hand shops and cafes. ;)

  22. Yay! I just got back from Japan 3 days ago, it was wonderful! Make sure you find the stationery store called Itoya in Tokyo - it's 9 storeys of amazing. And a warning, as a fellow graphic designer, allow 2 hours at least to browse.
