Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

Do you like Tokyo??

I went to Tokyo with my friends last week.

I'll show you some recommendation places.

★Meiji Jingu, Harajuku

I've lived in Tokyo for few years but it was first time to visit there.

It was a perfect day for taking a walk.

Libation from all of Japan!












Shichi-Go-San Boys!













*Shici-Go-San is a traditional event to celebrate the healthy growth of children.

This festival is for three and five year-old boys and three and seven year-old girls.
Children dress up in kimonos or dresses.

Parents take them to a shrine and have a Shinto purification ritual.

Both of these movies are two *very* good movies about interculturality. I recommend them very much.
Also I've seen "Lost in translation" the night before I left France for Japan. So it became a very special movie for me.
