Don't take the title of this post too seriously folks, but in all honesty, me and my family technically did somewhat travel to China and then to Japan all in one day. The 23rd was the last day for the Japanese Gourmet Fair held at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater, NJ and I was successfully able to convince my parents (my Dad being the tough one) to bring the family on a little trip. My Dad's not a fan of New York City's craziness and was utterly against us stopping by the bustling city even though it would only be 15-minutes from the fair; funny thing, his GPS misled him and led us onto a different path then what Google map directed us towards to get to the Japanese fair and bam! we ended up finding ourselves in New York City! However, we only spent an hour or two in China Town which was sort of sad cause I'm always up for venturing the gorgeous city but we all knew what our initial goal for the day was and hey, Japan is just as gorgeous. Prepare yourselves for a spamage of photos galore!
The one thing I absolutely love about spending the day at Mitsuwa is not only for all their delicious Japanese authentic foods, all things kawaii stationaries, and Japanese magazines and mangas, but because right behind the market is the Hudson river, and when you look across the river there's a beautiful view of the bustling New York City. It's even more beautiful knowing how lively the city is but from the other side of the river it appears to be such a peaceful and gorgeous city.
