passport to fun // Tokyo



yesterday we had our second Passport to Fun adventure! this time we went to Tokyo, Japan! originally we were supposed to have this adventure on the 15th, but our whole 30 got pushed back & so did our travels to Japan. because you just can't go to Japan & not have some rice!

it came together quite nicely for being thrown together the day before. because i've been working so much, i didn't have a whole lot of time to plan. i have a feeling all of these dates are going to be pretty low key, but i prefer it that way & they have been so much fun so far! 

i borrowed The Karate Kid (the remake) from a lady i work with so we watched that! we ate sushi on our window coffee table & sat on pillows on the floor! sometimes it is just fun to eat on the floor! i decorated with some paper lanterns, but i didn't have anything to hang them with so i just kinda set them around. it was a lot of fun to put together & Thomas was excited to get his second stamp in his passport!



please excuse my very horrible quality cell phone pictures!

  3. Did you guys make your own sushi? I've never done that before--I'm actually not a sushi eater myself, but Angel loves it.

  17. This is such a fun idea! My guy and I are always chatting about how we'd love to see the world, but we simply don't have the funds. What a fun way to bring the world home and enjoy a date night. I'm definitely going to need to borrow this idea!

  18. Caitlin!!! that is exactly our reasoning too! and also that my husband is scared to death of flying! but this has been such a fun & unique way to "travel around the world" and definitely a cheaper option! :) if you do this, you will definitely have to let me know how you set up each culture!!! :)
