Nami, Slovenia, around and around

I decided to write a blog about my travel across Japan. My sister and I decided to go to Japan for three months and research the country a little bit. Since this page is related to my Digimon Website, there will be a lot of Digimon content – since my plan is to write a little bit about the locations we can see in the Digimon franchise. If that’s why you are here, feel free to look around!

"Let us be lovely
And let us be kind,
Let us be silly and free.
It won't make us famous,
It won't make us rich,
But damnit how HAPPY we'll be."
- Edward Monkton

One of my favourite Digimon character's song, enjoy:
Toshiko Fujita (Tai) - Yuuki wo Tsubasa ni Shite (勇気を翼にして):

Otsukai - one of my fav app right now!
Monday 14 December 2020 @ December 14, 2020

 I don't really know how I found this app/website but I have to tell you, it's one of my favourite right now. Otsukai is actually a service that helps you to get a hold of a japanese only items that can't be found elsewhere. 

I use this service for a lot of things. For example when I was in Japan I bought this really cute tote bag in Kyoto (in a really small shop next to the monkey park). After a year of using it the bag tore and I couldn't  find another one. I was searching on the internet a lot but all the websites were only shipping it to Japan or Asia. So I decided to use Otsukai and see what will happen. I got a lot of offers with different prices and I chose the cheapest one and voila, 2 weeks later I had the bag I was looking for. No complications. I don't know the cost of the shipping but I think it's pretty cheap because everything I ordered wasn't really expensive - It's not like you pay 10€ for the item and another 10€ for the shipping. It's really low budget.

 On my last order I thought they charged me twice for the same item and they have such a nice support group and we managed to solve the problem really quick (it was my bank's fault in the end). 

The only thing I kinda dislike is that they only accept the request for Japanese language only items. I tried to order some Digimon comics that are actually part of Japanese firm - Bandai and were also released in Japan (or so I think) but because of Chinese author/language they removed my request. It's actually not a big deal or anything but I was sure someone from Japan could find these comics sooner than I would.

I actually wanted to talk about my latest order because it's connected to Digimon. I live in a small country in the central Europe and while growing up there were no Digimon related merchandise here - just Digimon cards and Digimon Album. Everything else I own was found in our neighbour countries by pure luck. When I was a child there was no internet to buy it from. Right now it's a lot easier to find things you like online and just buy it. 

In 2019 they released this special Tai and Sora CD at DigiFes 2019. It's actually a celebration CD for Tai and Sora's voice actors (Toshiko Fujita & Yuko Mizutani) that passed away a few years ago. It has 10 songs featuring Toshiko Fujita & Yuko Mizutani singing songs in character as Tai and Sora. The 4th track of the album is one of my favourite of all of Digimon songs - Tai's theme by Toshiko Fujita (I'll turn my courage into wings) - the same song I have under the "about" section.

I love the art for this CD, the four of them sitting on a hill with nice blue cloudy sky. They all look so happy. And the details are so cute - right next to the credits there is this line ".. 太一の バーカ。" that translates to "... Stupid Taichi." and it just reminds me on the second movie Our war game. And also on the left side of the CD there is a text that says "If it's with you, I can fly to the other side of that sky. That sky-blue wind, I will blow one day, to bring courage to everyone. Taichi Yagami & Sora Takenouchi. Taichi and Sora." And it just makes your eyes all teary, right?

Check the pictures and check the Otsukai app, it's worth it!
