Is sakura season over?
Did I miss it 😭
Don't know where you are but the peak is over for Kanto and most of Kansai but there might be some still left. In Tokyo, it rained a lot last night so a lot of them might be gone. If you go up nor...
Good spa in Tokyo?
where we wouldn't have to bring anything as a family
LaQua at Tokyo Dome, Oedo Monogatari in Odaiba. A bit pricey compared to other places though but they have the full experience. If you just want a bath, lots of onsen have rental towels and amenities....

Are earthquakes always that bad?
7.3 in no joke.
I mean it made international news because it was the biggest one in a while. While they're not usually this bad, you can never predict exactly when it's coming, so it's hard to be 100% pre...
