I’m Gisella. Made in Italy, living in Tanzania, loving Japan.

The World. From a blonde's point of view

Mission: "solo" Japan. Yatta!!!

October 30th, 2012. On flight from Dar Es Salaam to Tokyo.

This way, my first journey to Japan started! Going to Japan has been one of my dreams, since long time. After over two years living in Africa, finally I had the chance to plan an holiday in the Land of the Raising Sun.

Everything has been organized into the minimum detail. And the journey has been just great! Some weeks after coming back to Tanzania, I put order in thousands pictures and in my traveler's notes.

It's finally time to post about Japan. Enjoy!

Ginza has been just the first of many changes of plan that I did... following my (ehm) stomach. Another memorable place, done for lovers of excellent griffes and high fashion - yes, call me and I'm there in three seconds.

The original idea was to get there at mid-morning,...

Akihabara, Tokyo

No need to tell. Akihabara is the first place that I explored, just arrived in Tokyo! Maybe I'll tell about "the thing between me and Japan" one day, anyway that's the place where the story started. Ok, it was something like 10 or 15 years ago... I was in Italy...


Asakusa, Tokyo

Yes. I got off timetable. You know, days are running too fast...


I know, this is a very big fail. I was so busy doing things, and the last day I suddenly remembered - "Shit! I didn't go to Shinjuku!". Never mind. I have a very outstanding place...
