ANS Food Trip 2017.07.15 Collection (Spicy Food for Summer Season)

Hey! Here is another post today, This is another collection of food places featured in one episode. The theme was hot spicy foods for summer season ^_^ I am not really into spicy dishes but the places seem accessible and I especially wanna try the one in shin okubo. I could eat together with my friends and they can help me eat the spicy food if I can't take it anymore XD

All of these were featured in Arashi ni Shiyagare episode that aired last July 15, 2017, which was the episode that featured Domoto Koichi from Kinki Kids ( in promotion of the Kinki Kids 20th anniversary drama Sp Bokura no Yuuki Miman City)

ans food trip 2016.05.07 collection

Hi! It's been a while! I came from a Japan trip and got busy with work.

I'm back again for some more Food trip notes from Arashi ni Shiyagare.
Just to remind you, I won't put everything that has been featured from the show.
I only put the ones that seem accessible in Tokyo area, or the ones that I have interest in visiting in the future (even the ones outside Tokyo)

All of these were featured in Arashi ni Shiyagare episode that aired last May 7, 2016, which was the episode that had some members of Hey Say Jump. And unfortunately for the guests, they never got any answer correct. So, all the dishes were eaten by Arashi only XD
But I think I didn't include all ( I forgot since I watched this a few weeks ago)

Arashi no Wakuwaku Gakkou 2017 - Another Dream Come True

Last Week, July 8, 2017, I attended Arashi's WWG! It was my first time to attend it! I remember telling myself last year that I hope I can watch it the following year.. I just wanted to experience a WWG once in my life as an Arashi fan!!!

I was lucky that the Tokyo leg was scheduled on July month! I initially planned for a Japan trip in July because of shinobi no kuni, and having WWG in the same month, made my planned trip even more exciting!!!

I tried to ballot with some friends I knew in twitter... sadly we were all so unlucky even during the reballot period!!

But I recently met a friend, sacchan (or csaca in LJ) and she asked me if I wanted to join with her buying WWG tickets. I automatically said YES!!!

As the days grow near, I made a group chat in LINE for WWG 2017 tokyo goers, and it was fun to interact with them!

Experience with Lining up for goods:
The day before first WWG show, was the start of WWG goods pre -selling, at 10 am
I met up with 2 friends, risa and sacchan at 8:30 am in the venue. We initially planned on 7am but changed it to around 8am hehehe because we aren't hard core fans who would line up super early! And true there was arleady a lengthy line before us! Surprisingly the sky was gloomy and eventually started drizzling. Everyone took out their umbrellas! The staff noticed the situation and so they started opening the goods stall earlier than usual so we had a line moving as early as 9 am! I bought several goods ahead for friends. As for me I only bought shoe bag, group clear file and the umbrella. Amazingly, we finished buying goods even before 10am! How cool is that!!!

The Day of WWG:

Before I went to DOME in the afternoon, I actually hanged out with my close friend Rina. We went to Roppongi to watch Shinobi no Kuni, walked to Tokyo Tower after and ate lunch there, Went to Tokyo Station to visit Rilakkuma store to buy Rilakkuma idol plushies (which actually sold so quickly!!) Then we went to Tokyo Dome. I ate some Gindaco Takoyaki with Rina before heading up to the meet up point that our friends set up!

The sun was scorching and we were really dying because of the heat!!! So after meeting up, we headed to our respective gate entrances and went inside the DOME.

A pic from gate 22. I was in Gate 40 again!

I am back inside Tokyo Dome to see Arashi again!! It was wondefful!!!

Then at exactly 5pm, Arashi WWG started! OMG The whole show was sooooooo funny!!!! I kept laughing!!! and smiling!!!! I kept on spotting for ohmiya moments!!! I won't dwell on details because this is not really a report! But the main point was, I realized how much I could enjoy watching WWG! If we are in awe during a concert, then in WWG we kept on laughing!! like we are really watching a live taping of an Arashi variety show!!

The show ended in around 2.5 hours.. Me and my meet up group of friends had a photo taken together. They went out to eat in the shinobi no kuni soba place. But I headed back to the apartment that I stayed since I was quite beat after a loooong day of outing ^^

I had a wonderful and memorable experience with WWG! Seeing Arashi again this year was also what made it meaningful!

Now that a concert has been announced, I will just pray and hope that my work schedule will not be in the way for the December dates in Tokyo. I hope I can hit again this year, and watch Arashi once more before the year ends!

ANS Food Trip 2016.02.06 Collection (Sweets in Harajuku-Shibuya)

I decided to make another entry compiling all 5 foodie places that were featured during the death match quiz. This one is from February and it focused more on sweets. Sorry, I am not a fan of sweets so I was totally not enticed by what they ate. But it might be worth trying especially if anyone will do an Arashi pilgrimage around Harajuku-Shibuya area.

All entries come from Arashi ni Shiyagare episode that aired on February 6, 2016

This is a late post...
I drew this one back in April.
May was a busy month as I mentioned in my previous post so I was only able to make more posts when June started

I drew a fanart based on the magazine scans of arashi that showed half of their face, as if they were peeping hehehe

here is the sketch:

inking process:

and the finished piece!

I wanted it to have a manga feel!

oh and here is the original images which i also turned into a collage!
