Enjoy Japan PH

Sunday, February 15, 2015

So sad I have few photos lang from the Enjoy Japan PH event from a week ago. Truth be told, I went there as a "goer" and not as a blogger, and even signed up via Tricia G's blog weeks ago. I was part of the early bird (free ticket) list coz I signed up the moment I saw the announcement! Anyway, so I went to the all-Japanese convention in the hopes of learning a thing or two for my own trip to Japan next month. I was also hoping to get tips on visa application by asking around, coz back then I was still collating all paper work requirements. I was able to talk to Crissey Sy and she told me it's easier to get Japan Visa na these days. True enough, I just got a call 2 nights ago from my agency that my (stamped) passport is ready for pick-up!

Anyway, I now look back at this event and with more excitement for my own the-great-Japan experience. I will surely share my trip with you soon,  and I'll make sure to bring a camera na for full documentation! Hehe. That's 10 days Osaka/Kyoto/Narra with my Ate, and then 2 days solo travel to Tokyo. Akk! 

Okay, so the Enjoy Japan PH event held at the R Space Events Venue was actually the culminating activity na to an online campaign to "broaden and open doors of Japan through informative social media platforms to the Filipino community". Thus, all of Tricia Gosingtian's Japan travel posts the past weeks prior this. I love her storytelling skills and blog photos, she's one of the few that I still have in my bookmark and constantly visit along with Chuvaness.

When I reached the venue, the entrance was already packed with super diverse audience! Tricia gave a talk on why you should enjoy Japan (tech, fashion, anime, food, etc.), and I made sure to note some of them.

Went around the intimate set-up, and saw these stalls present during the event:

Japanese jeans from Denim Closet by Singo Umano-san, who was a stand-out that day with his denim kimono!

We also met Yayoi Ebii-san of Hide2A Hair Salon, who showed us her really pretty gel nail art! Japanese are really creative and have unique aesthetics! 

They also featured Japanese brands (including Denim Closet, Wanchechou, Lil Nina, Japacolle, and Star Rich Wigs) in a fashion show, but unfortunately my camera phone can't keep up with the strutting kawaii models, hehe. :( You can view photos from the show HERE.

Mini-bazaar of Japanese finds, with booths from Jeepney TV, Japacolle, Tricia Gosingtian 150 Style Essentials for Every Girl books, H.I.S Travel Tours, J-Style, Diamond Beauty, etc.

With my trio, Paul and Sarah. :) We didn't win the trip to Tokyo prize during the raffle, huhu!

Counting the days till #JAPANagon... And of course, I am still open for your tips so do comment below! :)
