Spring 2017: Nagoya Castle, Aichi, Japan

(more photos from the spring)

April 9th, 2017 (Sunday)

This was my first time to Nagoya Castle (after moving to Nagoya for half a year, lol) I wanted to come here in winter last year but luckily I didn’t. Nagoya Castle was so gorgeous in spring (with all the cherry blossom).

Spring 2017: Yamazaki River, Nagoya

April 4th, 2017 (Tuesday)

I went to Tsuruma Park in March for the cherry blossom but I only managed to find one or two trees blooming. Quan invited me to join his friends for hanami at Yamazaki River. It was a great afternoon (well, at least it was not as awkward as I thought it would be).

April was great. I went to few places to see the sakura (cherry blossom) with some friends and did hanami. I love the weather in April, it’s so hot in Japan now (well, at least it’s not humid).

I moved out from the dorm in April too. I really hoped that I could stay in the dorm forever. The dorm was great, but we were only allowed to stay there for a year. I found an apartment near the university (around 10-15 minutes’ walk). Looking for a new apartment in Japan was so troublesome and tiring because I couldn’t speak Japanese. I was rejected for a few times just because I’m a foreigner. Also, I needed to stay at my new place without furniture, electric appliances (fridge & washing machine) and internet access for a while. So grateful that I have already settled down now.

Spring semester began in mid of April. I took more subjects compared to the previous semester. I’m busier, but I like this semester more.

The first week of May was the Golden Week holiday (3rd May – 7th May). I planned to travel to other provinces with Michael but all the hotels were booked and we didn’t have a good plan. We ended up staying in Nagoya. We went to Meijo Koen, Oasis 21, Nagoya Port, Osu and Yagoto. Golden Week holiday with him was great; we know each other better after the holiday ❤

The past two months were really hectic: moving out from dorm + catching up with school works. I felt so stressed out and tired every day.  I struggled a bit in some of the classes, glad that I have Michael to help me with (also, be there with me most of the time). Not sure if I could manage all these without his companion.

Guess that’s all for this time. I will try to update more consistently (since I finally have Wifi now). It’s so hot in Japan now! Not as hot as Malaysia, but still. Stay hydrated! 🙂
