I don't know the real name for these, but let's just call them Wish Blocks.
Terrible photo, but I love it none the less.
this brings tears to my eyes, i miss it.
I didn't feel like editing these because I love them too much as they are to change them. Now that I'm posting so much about Japan, I wish I was there. Everyone was so kind to me and everyone was so happy. Especially my host family, they were the sweetest people I have ever met. I was there for two nights and had one full day with them. The photos above are from that day.
We went to the Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima. So. Much. Fun. There were deer running around and I got to pet some of them, but the kids in my host family were scared of them. I thought they were cute. They showed me around after I flipped out about the deer. They showed me all the wishes and fortunes that were tied everywhere. They showed me where to make wishes. They showed me all kinds of delicious food (there were these delicious pancakes stuffed with almond paste, and, ohmygod, they were amazing). I also tried oysters for the first time! Granted they were fried, but it doesn't change the fact that I tried them and liked them (for those of you who don't know me very well, I'm a VERY picky eater). We went shopping after we went to the shrine. THE MALL WAS HUGE! It had the best stuff!!! I wish I had a body suit that could make me fit everything and that I had all the money in the world. Why does Japan have to be so expensive?
ps. sorry the outfit isn't that great and i look terrible in all these photos...
