We took the train from Nagano to Tokyo and then to Yokohama for attending Interstyle.
A pretty big convention for board and outdoor sports.
After running into some of my favorite skateboarders in the elevator and became startstruck as hell, it was time to run off and see my other big hero; Shige.
Always wanted to see his shop. Methim first time 10 years ago before I started tattooing. He has been one of my biggest inspirations since then.
This artwork is going on my wall at home.
Then I met the guys from Yes and Nidecker for some dinner and beer.
I decided to stay one extra day in Yokohama, just because I really like this city better than Tokyo.
The Aloha feeling is strong here.
Even got some skateboarding in the last day before heading back to Tokyo.
My first days in Tokyo was just about relaxing and eating some well missed good japanese food at my all favorite vegan joint at Tokyo Station. T’s Tan Tan Ramen.
Then I met up with the rest of the crew to take the Shinkansen to Nagano.
After about 4 hours of travelling, we finally arrived at Kodama Lodge in Hakuba, Nagano.
Finally got to do a little more on this peace on Nick.
There is one thing I like more than most things. Disney movies. And yes, we went to Disneyland.
I was probably more excited than any of the kids there.
And.. it was Halloween themed, so I was pretty happy with my day.
Can’t get enough of pumpkins…
We also took some rides, but the heat was unbearable at some points.
The highlight was the fireworks. Since we didn’t get a good view the day before in the city.. we were pretty excited for this one.
Disneyland by night is a whole different world…
And again: beer and dim sum.
Definitely going back.
Went with Diana and Hellena to explore around the city. First we took a boat, then ended up on an island. The. The bus from there that took us up to the Big Buddah.
Then we took the zipline down to the city again. Such an adventure…
travelled with tram, boat, bus, train, car and zipline in one day. Not bad for an average girl from the smallest capital in the world; Oslo.
