Tokyo Disneyland

Post by Ana Schepps

On September 29th, I went to Tokyo Disneyland for the first time! When I came to Japan in 2017, I somehow did not remember that Japan had two different Disney parks, so I never went to them. I am so happy to have gone because I am a huge Disney buff and went to Disney World back in December. My love for the parks was rekindled, though I do not miss the long lines and standing around until my feet hurt.

Sailor Moon Museum

Post by Ana Schepps

On September 24th, I was able to go see the Sailor Moon Museum in Roppongi! When I was a child, I fell in love with Sailor Moon due to the transformation sequences, the characters’ personalities, and the story itself. It’s one of the series that I would credit for helping me grow into the person I am today, as I grew attached to the characters throughout the course of the series.

Tokyo Game Show 2022

Post by Ana Schepps

On September 17th, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Tokyo Game Show! It is the largest gaming convention in Japan and was held for the first time in 2 years. I normally do not go to conventions as they tend to be expensive and in locations that are impossible to get to, however, the convention hall was actually right near the school I am attending.
