Portland Festival

Hello, beautiful people ūüôā

How are you doing? It is finally getting actually¬†cold in Japan¬†and it feels kind of good to feel the chill on my skin. A couple of weeks ago, I found out that there was this festival in Tokyo that is all about Portland, America. In between Omotesando and Shibuya, at United Nations Univerity, they have farmer’s market¬†every weekends, and Portland festival was held in¬†there. I have been having this¬†really weird, yet passionate feelings for Portland and I’ve been craving to go there. I¬†don’t know why but Portland sounds so tempting to me. It seems like a very cool state with good cultures such as organic food, small local supportive community, coffee shops, and hippy. I love those kinds of things.¬†

Anyways, I am going to share how the Portland festival was like and I hope you enjoy! 


I just love that cow next to me… He wanted to be in the photo. Total photo bomb moment. 

Fresh veggies.

If I ever get married someday, I want to have a cool photo booth at my wedding after party. I think it is so cool! 

“Columbia” reminds me so much of the city in Missouri where I studied abroad. It’s called Columbia and it is right between Kansas City and St. Louis.¬†

It is the best and the coziest tiny little town with cool people. CoMo, which is Columbia, Missouri, is a college town and so¬†the city¬†itself is full of young and talented people. I am so glad that I had an opportunity to study there.I think not many people “choose” to go there, especially Japanese people. Los Angeles is cool, New York is amazing, but Columbia is definitely a home to me, along with LA where I also studied for a little bit but CoMo is great.¬†

It was funny when I was in CoMo, when people wear “Columbia” jackets¬†because we were in Columbia‚Ķ It is lovely and interesting when some completely different things happen to connect and to remind me of one of¬†those things, if that makes sense. I even felt like I was back in CoMo for a second, but nope, I was at Portland Festival, in Japan.

Coffee, coffee and more coffee… Portland would be such a great place to explore for cool coffee shops!
