Anie Goes Tokyo: Fukubukuro 2013

Hi Hi <3

Finally only 10 days till Tokyo <3. I wait since about 7 years to fly to Tokyo XD but I was too young or had no money or like last time: I had to cancel it because of the earthquake in Tokyo and the following catastrophe in Fukushima TT_TT. It was too dangerous to fly because no one knows what happen to the Nuclear power station in Fukushima. So I canceled Tokyo and went to Hong Kong.

AND NOW I GO TO TOKYOOOO *0* omg I really can’t believe <3 it’s like a dream come true XD
I fly at 25. December. We go with Turkish airline. They where most cheap XD we pay around 1000 SFR per person for fly to Tokyo and back. Flight is about 16 hour total but we have 2 hour in Istanbul for change the airplane so we fly 14 hours TT_TT

I go to Tokyo with a friend. He`s halve Japanese and he can meet this uncle in Tokyo ^^ Im really happy he can speak Japanese because I’m not that good XD I can talk some small stuff but I think I will forget everything because I’m nervous for doing fails if someone try to talk with me on Japanese XD

For saving money we go to a hostel. It’s really more cheaper than a hotel and it’s in Asakusa and from Asakusa I have a direct line to Shibuya *0*.
I hope I can do at first hair extensions >.<   the first full day(27.12) we go to shibuya and Harajuku <3, second day (28.12)  Ginza and Akiba then (29.12) Disney Land (30.12) don’t know XD a free day we can choose short what to do, (31.12) shibuya and New year party in shibuya (hope in the club Atom), (1.1) see some stuff near Asakusa, (2.1) FUKUBUKURO in Shibuya *0* most important part from Tokyo travel XD, (3.1) meet his uncle, (4.1) visit  some parts in Tokyo we forgot XD like Shinjuku or Roppongi  and stuff like this. (5.1) go back to Swiss TT__TT. This is a very no-detail plan what to do XD maybe it change a bit.

Now my most important day in Tokyo <3 FUKUBUKURO 2013 <3

What is Fukubukuro?

Fukubukuro (福袋 lucky bag, mystery bag?) is a Japanese New Year's Day custom where merchants make grab bags filled with unknown random contents and sell them for a substantial discount, usually 50% or more off the list price of the items contained within. The low prices are usually done to attract customers to shop at that store during the new year. The term is formed from Japanese fuku (福, good fortune/luck) and fukuro (袋, bag). The change of fukuro to bukuro is the phenomenon known as rendaku. The fuku comes from the Japanese saying that "there is fortune in leftovers" (残り物には福がある). Popular stores' fukubukuro usually are snapped up quickly by eager customers, with some stores having long lines snake around city blocks hours before the store opens on New Year's Day. Fukubukuro are an easy way for stores to unload excess and unwanted merchandise from the previous year, due to a Japanese superstition that one must not start the New Year with unwanted trash from the previous year and start clean. Nowadays, some fukubukuro are pushed as a lavish New Year's event, where the contents are revealed beforehand, but this practice is criticized as just a renaming of selling things as sets.

  1. Have a great trip <3

    I had to cancelled my trip too last year, because of Fukushima. I was so sad T__T But you'll see : Tokyo is magical ! Everything seems cute, pink.... *O* The fly is very long, but when you have to wait in Istanbul, it's not so long, because you have to go out of the plane, search the other, etc. xD

    I hope you'll enjoy your trip in Tokyo and bring back a lot of memories <3
