Love From Japan

itscamilleco.com2013062502

You see this crowd? We’ve all been standing in line for at least 4 hours–just to taste fresh sushi from the best restaurants around Tsukiji market. Originally, we wanted to watch the bidding inside the market but in order to do so, you need to go there extra early. We got to the market around 4:30am already. You’d think that’s early enough but apparently, it’s not. The tickets for the bidding were already sold out! So to turn our disappointment around, we decided to go to the best sushi place in Tsukiji–Sushi Dai.

We stood in line for HOURS! I didn’t think there would be such a long line so early in the morning!!! Imagine, it was even raining that day.

itscamilleco.com2013062504

It killed me to see the satisfied customers inside the restaurant. It felt like all that yummy sushi were so near, yet so far. LOL!

So when we were finally seated inside, it felt like I won an award! Haha! FINALLY! LOOK AT THAT TUNA!

itscamilleco.com2013062501

Before going inside the restaurant, a waitress asked us to choose between their regular and special set. Standing in line for more than 4 hours tend to make you choose the latter. I don’t regret it though. The sushi I had at Sushi Dai were so fresh!

Bonus points because the sushi chefs here are actually jolly and not at all, scary and too serious for their own good.

After what felt like the longest morning of my entire life, my mom, sister and I headed to the Imperial Palace for some sightseeing (and outfit shots of course).

I was feeling a little hippie this day so time to whip out the crochet top and fedora hat combo.

    It has been a really, really, REAAAALLLY long time since ang last visit ng jeans mo na yan dito sa blog mo. :D
    Hindi pa ganyan kulay ng buhok mo. Did you wear this na and just not posted it here or ngayon mo lang talaga isinuot ulit? Ooorrr, I am wrong?

    Your shots are magical (whew). Love the crochet top.

    I’ve been a fan of you and your amazing looks for a while now and I have no idea as to why I haven’t been reading your blog! That aside, your look is amazing! I love that pop of red and hints of gold accessories <3 So obsessed with your fedora hat!

    P.S. I'm so jealous of you! I LOVE Japan! If memory serves, the people (that sells snacks) at Mt. Fuji and Tokyo Tower can speak many languages (I'm from Indonesia and I can say that they can speak Indonesian fluently!). So you should be fine if you have Takoyaki cravings :3

    Great photos! Didn’t know you were in Japan, would’ve recommended a Japanese resto owned by my BF’s dad. Hehe. ;) Love your crochet top. Am glad you were still able to eat delicious Japanese food. (P.S. If you don’t mind answering, just wanted to know where you get your hair colored or if you can recommend a good place to get your hair colored. ^_^ )

    Hi Camille,
    Do u hire a tour guide for your trip? I dont like to follow tour group, but I dont speak japanese either. Perhaps a private tour guide is good, but not too sure how much it cost. Hope to get your advise. :)

    Gorgeous as always! I love that you can still pull off black even when it’s summer time! :)

    Just one question po… I know this is your blog, I mean it’s called itscamilleco haha, pero have you ever thought of maybe featuring someone like your mom or sister as blog niyo? I’m just really curious how your family dresses too especially since you talk about being inspired by your mom even at an early age. Maybe take outfit shots together when you’re traveling? Just curious po :D

    Those are JEANS?! Your pants look like velvet! (Golly, I am such a nerd…) Anyway, This post reminds me of many vintage photos that I’ve seen — kudos to your photography style as well!

    Your accessories were the touch of modern for this very vintage-looking ensemble. I like how you turned the gold belt into a necklace.

    The little OCD in me was screaming “your bag’s zipper is half open! Beware of sticky bandits out there!” lol Anywayz, back to a safer note, I love the whole ensemble and I especially love the orange socks peeking at the very last photo ;)

    I LOVE JAPAN I wanna go there!!! AAAAGHHH tulo-laway talaga ang sushi! *criiiiiiieeees*. Sea urchin ba yung yellow thing na yan? I tasted that once and parang seafood mangga yung flavor. hahaha… weird. They also have these candy making sets na pwede kang gumawa ng mga mini burgers (that tasted like the real thing), and other fun stuff. You get to play with your food talaga. Haaaay…

    I have a black crochet top in my closet and because of this post, I now know how to style it! Thanks Cams!!! More Japanese food porn pleaseeeeee!!! ;) <3

    WAAAAH!! SO jellyyy!! I might cry the moment I first eat sushi in Japan ;___; It’s like “Oh glorious moment that I have been waiting since I was a child!” lolz drama! But seriously, it’s like a DREAM! I could eat sushi everyday if my wallet permitted me to do so, hahaha! I wish we had Japan weather here. Mas masarap siguro mag outfit shots in Intramuros if it weren’t so hot and humid @_@

    Sana when you are abroad you take pictures of cute, fasyown guys! Yung parang stockholm street style o kaya Jak and Jil lang ang peg! haha! Tapos karirin mo yung detail shots. Detail shots somewhere around their “masculinity” you know… haha! hay nako. If only I travel abroad as often as you, ganyan ang peg ko, Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil. Yun nga lang off limits ang “detail shots” sa mga girls. Boys only! At may naisip na akong site URL. BULGEHUNTER.COM chos! haha! Lakas maka-porn. bet ko na din yung FELIX-BAKAT-GOES-INTERNATIONAL.COM para may touch of pinoy gay culture parin. haha!

    if i was in your shoes, that wouldn’t made my day, Camille. it will not. I’m guessing you have already practiced that patience for a very loooong time. waking up early in the morning hoping to get tix for the bidding but unfortunately it was sold out even before you arrived then you came with an idea to taste that fresh sushi unfortunately again you have to wait for 4 hours. what is wrong with the world. LOL kidding.
