I know it's a late post.

While our Riida has turned 36, my LJ here has also turned 6!!! YAY!!! 🎉🎊🎇🎆😁
I honestly didn't remember why I picked November 25th as the date to make this LJ account... yeah, only a day earlier from the birthday of the person who baited me as an Arashian. Maybe it was just a sheer luck or merely coincidence. Nevertheless, I'm glad.

I met many people since I'm into Arashi, a lot of them online, and some more I even met in real life. I couldn't be more grateful to be able to know people from the other side of the world just because we have the common interest, which is Arashi. Courtesy of our fishing leader, Ohno Satoshi, of course.

To all the people I met through the subbing team (I'm glad to be part of you, girls... even what I've done is practically nothing compared to the translators, timers, and typesetters), the people I met through twitter (which I made as a communication means for the subbing team, initially), the people I met through Line group (extended from both twitter/LJ connection), the people I met from the buyer-seller relationship, and the people I met when I went to see the boys (and the trip, naturally), I'm so truly very glad I've met you all.

Oh, and of course the people I met through tumblr!!! I'm not as active as way back then but I still visit it from time to time.

I've never thought that this journal will reach this age, really. Or more like I've never thought that I will be in this Arashian realm this long. Hence explained the username I chose for this LJ. I made this LJ account on a whim, never meant it as something I would use a lot. The name "justfever" relates to what I feel back then. I thought when I like Arashi it would be a temporary thing and I quite sure it was just a short period, so maybe it was just a fever I guess. A fever that will be gone sooner or later. But then... look at me now. I have never imagined that I will like them so much to even made to their concert twice, moreover went on journeys to a faraway country. I made big steps here and there, something I treasured and cherished. Before I know it, this fever has been running this long.

So, "meeting" Arashi gave a lot of "firsts" for me. Creating this journal is only one of them. On the other hand, Arashi gave me a lot more too: support, inspiration, motivation, solace, comfort, determination, hope, and gratitude for everything I got in every day life. For me, Arashi is like a friend that walk together side by side with me, sometimes offering hand for support when I wasn't able to stand or walk.

I'm glad I know Arashi. As simple as that.

We left for Asakusa quite early in the morning. Another appoinment has waiting that day: a reunion with an acquintance who said she would bring a friend who also loves Arashi. Mariko is a friend we knew from our friend back in hometown. She spent a week or so in our town last year in December and we had quite few trips together, or more likely our part is the guide and Mariko is the guest. It was very exciting.

I guess I'll write my report on Ghibli and Nakano in another post. ^^b

After enjoying free breakfast from our hostel in Yokohama that morning, we left for Kawagoe. Yeah, from Yokohama to Kawagoe is quite a length of a journey. This time we have to meet with another friend of my friend right in Kawagoe station. It was my first time meeting her, Yoshie-san and her senpai in university, Morita-san. I guess it was their first time in Kawagoe too (?) We have to find coin lockers to put my friend luggage and my omiyage from Yokohama then looking for a kaiten sushi shop to answer the wailing stomach (already! haha). There's no Sushiro nearby but we found a cheap one in the atre mall right in front of the station. Almost everything is 100 yen (+tax ofc) but as my friend said the choices are not as wide as Sushiro. But well, we haven't eat sushi ever since we're in Japan, so it's fine.

Mr. Donut is everywhere here!

too many pics, sorry... )

Still in our lovely hotel in Arakawa, we woke up and getting ready for Yokohama. We'll be checking out and spend the night in Yokohama for 20. Had our quick breakfast then took Tokyo Metro, change train... got off in Ishikawacho and met my friend in the Dotour Cafe in front of the China Town exit. Ahead to Yokohama China Town~ named as the biggest China town in Japan.
Right when we starting to walk it's slowly raining, at first it was a very light drizzle though. Yokohama Chinatown basically sell anything from fresh seafoods, clothes, to snacks, meals, and souvenirs. We bought cheese egg tart and some foods in Lawson 100, which sells every thing for only 100 yen or less (if you're lucky!). I got a bunch of bread for my self. Strolling through Chinatown we reached the meeting point to see my friend's friend. Sayo-san is currently living in Tokyo but she's originally from Nagano. Next destination is to go to Cup Noodles Museum and for this we have to take a train.
A day in Yokohama )

I have my plan in preparation now, hopefully it will go smoothly.

"I just kept making them anyway. It was like…made it, failed, made it, failed… (laughs) But if I had been failing too much, I just couldn’t find the way to fail anymore. Then it was getting closer to what I wanted slowly. Once I could make it, I really enjoyed making it."
