It was a bit rainy before I left. Not heavy storms but just a light drizzle. It seems a bit odd at first to see so many people using their umbrellas but after walking around a bit, I realized you have to or else eventually you do start to get very wet and your clothes will start to soak too. What I like about Tokyo (and Seoul too) is that so many people walk in the rain and so you always see a parade of colorful umbrellas (in the U.S./LA/SoCal, people like me are always driving and black is the preferred umbrella color, haha).

I took the airport bus from my hotel to Narita airport and snapped a few pictures on the way. It was about an hour and a half, so different than just driving anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes to local airports here, including LAX.
If you're ever in Tokyo, you don't have to worry about scouring for Japanese Kit Kats because they have tons at the airport! I mean by the boxes, and in shops all throughout the terminals.
Strawberry Kit Kats...
Green Tea Matcha Kit Kats...
Green Tea Cherry Blossom or Matcha Sakura Kit Kats...
The other flavors I saw were Wasabi (ew), Blueberry Cheesecake and Strawberry Cheesecake.
Did you know?
Okay, okay...enough of my Kit Kat whoring. XD What else would one buy duty free? Sake~!!
The sales lady insisted these were the best.
Aside from Kit Kats and sake, there were lots of cute souvenirs like these girly magnets. It kind of made me laugh that one is all cutesy looking and the other is round like a balloon, but of course, still cute.
Kimono-wearing Hello Kitty dolls! Doesn't the one in red look like she's bowing? keke
I thought of getting it but I'm pretty sure every Hello Kitty lover I know already has one, hehe.
Naruto book...to me, I found this more exciting than Hello Kitty.
Lastly...pretty bottles of sake! Isn't the packaging so pretty? I would have thought they were perfume bottles.
Boarded and ready to go!
I love how my view can go from rainy and gray to a neverending bed of fluffy, white clouds. =)
Next post will be beauty-related and then finally I can post all of my trillion Seoul pictures! =)
