Hard to Say Good Bye

Big Ben

I’ve been keeping a secret for a while – well, not really because I didn’t want you sweet readers to know about it, but because I just didn’t quite know the right moment to tell you.


Last Thursday, Mr T and I left the UK to move back to our homeland, Japan. Although the move was a happy one, spending the last good ten years, it was just really hard to say good bye to the beautiful country.

I’ve met so many (and I mean, so many) lovely people, experienced things that I’d never experience in Japan, and ate Fish and Chips more than I probably should. There had been good times and bad times, of course, but now that I’ve left the country, all the things that came up to my mind were just so colourful and cheerful.

Please be patient with me until I settle in Tokyo – hopefully I’ll be back soon enough :)

P.S. Oh Tanuki, I’m really, really sorry I couldn’t meet you before I left… Hope to see you sometime soon in Japan, though!

  5. I’ve been secretely following your blog for almost a year now !
    It’s funny because at first, I didn’t realize that you were Japanese but somehow really liked your creations’ style. I’ve actually lived a few years in Japan myself until I came back to Europe so I was probably uncounciously attracted to the Japanese touch in your creations !
    10 years in UK is a long time ! Hope you enjoy coming back to your country.
    Will keep checking out your blog.
