Hey, I got some scoop for you - 24 to be exact! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ’œπŸ¨ #BirthdayCakesSoOverrated #FriendsSoExtra #tb

What surprised me the most about Japan was realizing how much cash people still carry around like for everything - public transport, restaurants, retail outlets. Could it be that this nation of "early adaptors" has chosen not to embed technology in its payment system? πŸ’°
So I looked it up and headlines with "Cash is Still King in Japan" greeted me (not to mention the numerous Quora posts πŸ™Œ) - so it IS true! Credit cards (and even Apple Pay) are accepted in certain places but they're not as widespread. Apparently, Japan has an expensive banking system and this discourages people from leveraging such institutions to safeguard their money (mattresses for the win?) πŸ›
Can you imagine, while Europe has limited (halted even?) the printing of its €500 bill πŸ’Ά In Japan, the Β₯10,000 note represents more than 90% of cash outstanding! πŸ’΄
Ok, that's enough nerdy talk - point is, I learned something really interesting and wanted to share it with you! πŸ€“πŸ˜œ
Tip when in Japan: it's not very easy withdrawing from local ATMs, your best & safe bet are 7/11 ATM machines πŸ’³

I'm no sneaker-head but these Supergas are everything - wore them (out) the whole two weeks πŸ‘ŸπŸ’ƒ

Disney Sea is by far the prettiest Disney theme park I've visited. Every corner and section is simply well designed & thoroughly conceptualized. Honestly, every turn was 'Gram worthy 😍
In terms of thrilling rides there are just a handful of those at the Park, but there's tons of popcorn (@highsails tried the black pepper πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸΏ) & restaurants (get your hands on the alien mochis! It's a must must must, so delicious in 3 flavours - strawberry, chocolate & vanilla) to compensate & keep you and your tum-tum busy 😜
All rides, parades & shows are in Japanese - you'll have Mickey saying "Konnichiwa" and Ariel singing the translated version of "Part of that World" (so lil me couldn't sing along hahahaha) but it's good fun! πŸ’ƒ
Also, you'll encounter a really popular Disney character in Japan - Duffy and friends. Like y'all, he's big out here & I had no idea who he was which was embarrassing, I call myself a Disney baby and I had no clue of Duffy's existence! πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ He's a real cute teddy, by the way, and if I understood correctly, he's Mickey's teddy which he received from Minnie as a parting gift before he embarked on this long journey around the world 🌍 So now Duffy and I are acquainted and I also got to meet his new friend "Stella Lou" who joined the club a couple of months ago (photo #2) 🐰 Keep that friends club going, Duffy! 🐻
Anyway, I've said way too much! Y'all should really just check the place out for yourself. And if you wanna really blend in with the locals go in matching, kawaii outfits! 🌸
