So tomorrow is my birthday. Tomorrow I turn 26. Wow. Maybe sounds crazy but I was always dreaming about those days. I mean, when I was a child I would dream to have an house, a dog, an husband...around 23.

Ok baby Martina, calm down. I was a dreamer, she was a dreamer. I am realistic right now: I am still young. I have time for this.

Last year I went with some friends, here in Tokyo, to a shabu shabu place and after to a karaoke. Was a expeeeensive night. After 2 months in Tokyo we couldn't speak Japanese (almost nothing) so we basically spent too much everywhere because we didn't know any discounts  (eheheheheh).

This year I'm planning to go to visit a bit of Tokyo, probably in Koto ku and Minato ku and Shinjuku ku. I have a reservation for dinner in the restaurant I used to work in Monzen-nakacho. The tencho texted me yesterday to ask me if I want something special to eat. Thery are one of the best thing I found in Tokyo. Be a foreigner in this country could be difficult, I was lucky to find them :).

I would like to be with my friends and my family, but this year is different. I spent the last year in Tokyo while I was supposed to end my life here in october 2019....so :D

After the dinner with my boyfriend we will probably go to a karaoke (it's a tradition now) and after I'll call my family (they will have like a party without me ahah).

I'm planning what to see tomorrow and I'm really curious about an "anime-manga tour". Basically you have ti search some place in Tokyo that are from anime and/or manga. The first time I searched about Japan was when I was 12 and I was watching Sailor Moon (original anime), after two years I started to go around my region searching for the manga and finally a new print came out!

Was my first manga ever and my first anime ever. I'm pretty sure I'll start searching the location.

All the story is based in Junban, a little district in Tokyo where Usagi lives and her friends too. There are a few places to see that you can reconnect to the same place inside the manga. I think I'll do a tour in the district and the Hikawa Shrine (Rei-Sailor Mars temple, the one where she is a miko of the temple, her granpa his the priest of the temple).

We will see, now it's time an early-birthday cake and a bath!
