From boarding the plane for my first flight to Japan to feasting on Nagoya’s famous Misokatsu, this photo diary: Part I unfolds all the evidences of indulgence. Recorded in between are memorable / peculiar moments such as discovering signboards with hilarious English typos, sitting on a gargantuan Kinshachi in Nagoya Palace, uncovering Selax (name probably inspired by sex + relax?), witnessing the first signs of red leaves at Noritake, a water roof (!), and so much more. Part II coming up next . . .
