Konnichiwa! Ogenki desu ka?

Ohayo gozaimasu to all of my readers in Japan!

I'm really excited about my first trip to Japan next month!! My husbands family lives there and I've never met them. Exciting and nerve wracking at the same time!

We have plans for most of the days that we'll be there, but I have 3 entire days to goof off and do whatever I want. We promised to take the kids to Tokyo Disneyland, but I was also wondering if there are any stamp stores out there?? Does anyone have any recommendations?

Our "home base" will be in Tokyo, but we'll also be going to Soma, Kyoto, Hakata Island, Nagasaki, Asakusa, the Harajuku district. Any info or fun recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

How exciting! I know there are tons of CUTE stamps in Japan but couldn't tell you exactly where. A general Google search may unearth some wonders!

Check out Tokyu Hands in Tokyo. They have a floor dedicated to stationary and stamps. I bought a Sakura paper punch there. I wish I bought some of the washi paper too. it's all so beautiful!

I loved Kyoto! buy the one day bus pass. it's worth it. u'll be hoping on and off since it's pretty much the only major mode of transportation and easiest way to get to the temples and attractions. don't forget bug spray!!! the mosquitoes feasted on me for sure.
