Hello, beautiful people! How are you all doing? I hope you are having a good day wherever you are :)
Today, I am going to share some of the photos I took when I went back to my home town. I always say "I'm from Osaka" because I am, but to be honest, I'm from the "outskirt" of Osaka. Nature is beautiful there and I feel like people do not usually associate me with nature for some reason but I actually do love forest and trees and stuff. Maybe no insects. Although, I loved them when I was little.
If you are from Osaka, have you seen the nature side of Osaka?
If you are from cities like Tokyo and New York, would you like to see some beautiful nature from my home town? I hope you do.
So I really hope you enjoy some photos I took!
This is the mountain called Myoken Mountain (妙見山) and theres a temple on the top of the mountain. This photo I took was on the way to the temple.
This road with beautiful trees is just 5 minutes away from my house. It's just a road when you think about it, but when you really think about it, it is a gorgeous and beautiful road.
I love taking a deep breath when I am in the forest. It just feels so good, isn't it?
I feel fresh and alive. I haven't breathed enough in Tokyo so it was very nice to say hello to the trees and breath in.
Look at my mom! She's so little under the tree! Well, she's actually little.
My mom and I found a perfect spot for the portrait. Perfect lighting and perfect background. So we did a little cheeky photo shoot. Mostly, me teaching her how to push the button on the camera…
One of the biggest reason I was back in town was to see my best friend's mom. She organized a little event to make this special gem bracelets. I had one but I needed to have some maintenance on it so I joined.
This is me being so happy with my new bracelets.
These bracelets are made from gems/crystals and each one has meanings and wishes. My best friend has one and she introduced me to them. It is so weird because I always loved stones and gems since I was little and now I am bringing back my love for crystals. I always feel positive energy from crystals. I think it is because it is connected to nature, if that makes sense. And this time, I made one for my mom as a little gift. I'm so glad that she was happy with this surprise gift.
Cosmos is one of my favorite flowers. I think they look so pretty and happy!
This is me talking Instagram photos of my bracelets on the moss. It was so beautiful. I love green. I just feel so fresh and happy in the forest. Is that weird?
So serious… My mom found it funny but I was serious.
This is the biggest and oldest tree near my hometown. It's apparently famous, which I did not know… It reminds me of the Magic tree in Columbia, Missouri! I miss there. I feel like this tree and the Magic tree are connected under the ground. Maybe I can transport? :D
Of course, coffee. It was quite expensive for a cup of coffee but we got it anyway.
If I ever opens a coffee shop, which I actually have seriously thought about, I would make it really nice with quality coffee and invite all my friends :)
And the last stop before I went back to Tokyo was my favorite Indian curry restaurant. I have tried many curry places but they all cannot beat this place. If you are in Osaka and are looking for a good curry restaurant, I highly recommend there.

I asked if I could take some photos (of them making naan) and they stopped making naan and made a cheeky little pose for the camera! Such a lovely people there.
Their chai tea is also amazing. I already miss their food!
So that is all for this blog post. I added so many photos so I apologize if it took your time for too long!
But thank you so much for visiting my blog. It really means a lot and makes me happy when people see my blog.
Again, thank you very much, and I will see you in my next blog posts which are coming very soon.
